"Trayvoning" trend shows people re-enacting Trayvon Martin's death

There's a new trend called "Trayvoning" hitting the internet where people post pictures re-enacting the death of Trayvon Martin.

That's according to a television station out of Memphis where people are reacting with outrage.

Trayvon Martin, who was just 17, was the Florida teen shot and killed in February by a neighborhood watch captain.

Teenagers are posting pictures of themselves lying in the street with skittles in one hand and an ice tea in the other.

Many people called the postings sick and twisted, and the African American news blog, called AA Reports, posted, "They are not doing this to make any social statement on Trayvon Martin's death, but because they some how think it's funny."
