Last night while hanging out on Twitter and Instagram I saw tweets about the smartphone game called “Angry Trayvon”  so I had to hold an investigation

So I found the app in my Google Play Store. As you know, Trayvon Martin was the 17 year old teen who was shot and killed by George Zimmerman in Florida. The trial is underway now. Trayvon was killed February of 2012

Angry-Trayvon-Description

The game was developed by Trade Digital in December 2012 and first appeared in the Google Play store this past July 2013. The game revolves around a hooded character named Trayvon, who is a man on a “world tour of revenge on the bad guys who terrorise cities everyday.”

Trade Digital defended its stance by saying that the game was purely made for entertainment and was not cashing in on the slain teenager’s case. The post read:

“The people spoke out therefore this game was removed from the app stores. Sorry for the inconvenience as this was just an action game for entertainment. This was by no means a racist game. Nonetheless, it was removed as will this page and anything associated with the game.”
