Rihanna, Jay Z, Kanye West Join Stevie Wonder's Florida Boycott Following George Zimmerman Verdict

Florida concert ticket sales may be plummeting soon.

Performers such as Rihanna, Jay-Z Jay Z, Kanye West, Justin Timberlake and Madonna have reportedly decided to follow Stevie Wonder's footsteps in boycotting Florida in protest of the state's "Stand Your Ground" law. April Ryan of American Urban Radio Network first broke the news, crediting "a source close to Wonder" for leaking a list of A-listers who've vowed to not perform at the Sunshine State in the wake of George Zimmerman's acquittal for the 2012 k!lling of unarmed teen Trayvon Martin.

Wonder earlier announced his intention to boycott any state with "Stand Your Ground" laws after a jury found Zimmerman -- who police did not arrest weeks after the k!lling due to the law -- not guilty of second-degree murder. The "Stand Your Ground" defense also appeared in instructions to jurors during the trial.

"I decided today that until the Stand Your Ground law is abolished in Florida, I will never perform there again," Wonder said during a concert in Canada earlier this month. "As a matter of fact, wherever I find that law exists, I will not perform in that state or in that part of the world."

According to Ryan, other notable celebs on the boycott list include Usher, Alicia Keys, The Rolling Stones, Rod Stewart and will.i.am.

Jay Z and his wife, Beyonce, also showed their support for Martin, appearing at a recent rally in New York City to support the slain teenager's family.

Stevie is right, all these rappers and singers shud follow suit

Jay and JT need to cancel that show

Hit the economy of an area and it will soon change its melody, these officials get mad as hell when they see even a 0.1% drop in annual finances

It took The Rolling Stones to kick start this boycott with Stevie, the white rockers from England doing what black rappers shud have done to start with

Rappers always jump ship later on

My artist, though not big yet said he wont perform in Florida. Just turned down a show at King of Diamonds.

I told him when sh*t get major, we have to compensate the potential future Florida fans. He asked how.

I said doing more shows in states that surround Florida & charging the Florida residents a crazy discount like 50% or more.

Taking in consideration their time & money spent for travel. If an artist of Jay Z(no dash) status did this, there will be no bad press from that

nope not a full a boycottt they going to play one more show





so they boycotting stand your ground? they do know 28 other states have similar laws right?


and they do know that the judge denied the defense the "stand your ground" law right... this was based on Self defense the aqquital right
im confused about this. because the regular self-defense law says you have to retreat before using lethal force.. but they said that didnt have to be proved in the trial.. the stand your ground doctrine says you dont have to retreat also but im either hearing that zimmerman didnt use it or the judge rejected it... if you know more about the trial then me. then youre welcome to enlighten me

False





Although some of the other artists mentioned in the example reproduced above may have made public statements expressing disappointment or concern with the verdict in the Trayvon Martin case, as far as we know none of them (other than Stevie Wonder) has canceled upcoming concert dates in Florida or expressed a refusal to play there in the future.

Contrary to what is stated above, the North American 'Legends of the Summer' tour featuring Justin Timberlake and Jay Z was not due to kick off in Miami, Florida, until Justin Timberlake canceled it because "he refused to entertain a state who's [sic] government allows people to shoot and k!ll unarmed teenagers." That tour began as scheduled with its opening date in Toronto, Ontario, on 17 July 2013 and played its first U.S. date at New York's Yankee Stadium two days later. The tour is currently scheduled to hit Miami on 16 August 2013.

ya know what, I fu*ks with florida. I like a lot of the people I meet from florida, (cept my ex, she can rot in hell) but yea, if all the celebs are dippin.... that means anyone nice enough to grace the floridian masses will get double the love. Might have to hit that up. I am upset at the law, but by boycotting florida, ppl are boycotting their fans. Why not pour money from those concerts into the Trayvon Charity? Florida got wayy more problems than just trayvon. the poverty in some parts is torrid for no reason. They just gonna leave the people that work they a.ss off to see them perform, to f!ght a law that wont change. If everyone boycotts florida, it will just make the state worse

When Brooklyn is a pissy smelling, dookey, sh*t floored

Brooklyn is a fu*king wasteland where

black n*ggas is always getting k!lled

and instead of trying to help his home town

he outchea complaining about a verdict in a case based out of

Florida

Jay Camel and his Camel Battys lost.

Oh yeah, cue the gif
