By now, most of us know why Skittles has become a bit of a hot topic. They just happen to be one of the items in Trayvon Martin’s hands as he was murdered by acting neighborhood watchman, George Zimmerman in February. Skittles is now on a much bigger platform than they were before as Trayvon supporters have been clearing out the shelves at their local stores, buying skittles to send the empty packaging to the Sanford Chief of Police.
Some of the replies Skittles received on their Facebook wall have been very interesting. While some people strayed away from the Trayvon Martin replies, many Skittles fans used this moment to express their frustration with Trayvon being shot with Skittles in hand. Skittles’ question sort of hits home because Trayvon’s Skittles were his last. Check out some of the replies below.
Skittles released a classy statement about them not profiting from the Trayvon Martin tragedy at all, but their Facebook page just might turn into a “Justice For Trayvon” page by default.
