Zendaya sends support for Trayvon Martin on Twitter

Shake It Up singer/dancer/actress Zendaya made this picture of herself and friends hunched over in hoodies her default on twitter; hoodies have become a recent symbolic viral gesture in support of justice in the case of Trayvon Martin, a Florida high school student who was shot and killed by George Zimmerman on his way home from buying candy. Martin was wearing a hoodie and appeared "suspicious" to neighborhood watchman Zimmerman, whose arrest is now being demanded from coast to coast for the murder of young Trayvon.

"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere" Zendaya quoted Martin Luther King Jr. on twitter, going on to say "#riptrayvonmartin".

i want to wear a hoodie around campus but tbh i think people would just be like, "white girl with the magenta hoodie, stop."
