Bruce Springsteen Dedicates Song to Trayvon Martin

by at . Comments

Bruce Springsteen performed a concert in Ireland yesterday, but the singer's thoughts were clearly on a major story taking place in America:

The George Zimmerman verdict that acquitted this Florida resident in the wake of his shooting of Trayvon Martin.

Springsteen performed “American Skin (41 Shots),” telling the crowd before doing so: "I want to send this out as a letter back home, for justice for Trayvon Martin."

The track was penned in 1999 after New York City police officers shot and killed an unarmed man named Amadou Diallo.

Earlier this week, Kim Kardashian Tweeted her thoughts on Martin, but got in a lot of trouble for doing so. We doubt The Boss will face the same backlash.

What an idiot. Evidentially he's never heard of self defense or he never tuned into the trial. There is such a thing as evidence and it's evident he doesn't have a clue.
