Viola Davis and Taraji P Henson Call For Boycott Of Biased Media Outlets

The Rupert Murdoch-owned tabloid referred to Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old shooter as a “suspected teen gunman,” showing a photo of him doing community service work. 

Rittenhouse was charged in the fatal shooting of two men during a protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, following the police shooting of Jacob Blake.

However, a headline for one of their Trayvon Martin stories is strikingly different.  It reads that the 17-year-old had “traces of marijuana” in his system when he was fatally shot by George Zimmerman in Florida back in 2012.

“You are foul for this [New York Post] you are a part of the problem!!!,” Davis echoed from Henson. “Entertainers, we need to boycott publications that continue to criminalize innocent POC after they have been murdered by the law!!! This is cruel and traumatizing to the loved ones left behind. You are heartless and cruel!!! #Fixthisshit #Trayvonmartin was walking home with candy and tea in his hands, not the blood of innocent lives!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
