STARS PAY TRIBUTE TO TRAYVON MARTIN AT LONDON'S YAHOO WIRELESS

On Sunday it was announced that justice for Trayvon Martin was not given, leaving his killer walking away as a free man.

A flood of tributes cried from people across the world as well as the celebrities and musicians performing at London's hottest festival.

It was heard that the accused killer George Zimmerman was not charged for murder of 17 year old boy Trayvon Martin. The case initially began from the start of 2013 when Zimmerman shot the adolescent on February 12, claiming that it was an act of self defense. 

The jury accepted this was the case, leading to an outcry from the general public, media and all the artists performing at Wireless Festival yesterday..... they all had something to say for the injustice. 

A Tribe Called Quest paid tribute to Trayvon and said on stage "this shit happens everyday and it ain't fair man".
