Music legend, Stevie Wonder, played Quebec City, Canada on Sunday, during which he made a rather startling statement. The 63-year-old voiced his opinions in regards to the recent acquittal of George Zimmerman and announced he would boycott the state of Florida until “Stand Your Ground” is eradicated.
“I decided today that until the ‘Stand Your Ground’ law is abolished in Florida, I will never perform there again. 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.”
Albiet the “stand your ground” law is arguably not a factor in Zimmerman’s acquittal, it was the cause for much of the debate surrounding potential motivation for Zimmerman’s actions on the night of Feb. 26, 2012.
The Grammy award-winning artist asked his fans to join him in his veto, earlier in the over 3-min. video segment.
“For those that we have lost in the battle for justice, wherever that fits in any part of the world — we can’t bring them back. [What] We can do is we can let our voices be heard. And we can vote in our various countries throughout the world for change and equality for everybody. That’s what I know we can do.”
