#WhitePeopleBoycottingEBONY Blows Up On Twitter After Magazine’s Trayvon Martin-Inspired Covers

Ebony magazine got a dig in at the Tea Party and Twitter did the rest.

1. Ebony magazine unveiled its new September covers, featuring celebrities wearing hoodies, in an attempt to continue the conversation on gun violence, the “Stand Your Ground” laws, and saving young black men from violence.

2. The covers received some criticism on Twitter.

The racist trolls on our timeline objecting to our September covers need to have a seat at a Klan meeting and get out of our mentions.

@EBONYMag

We have so many Tea Party readers and followers. To lose all zero of them due to our September cover would be devastating.
