Stevie Wonder Boycotts Florida, Other "Stand Your Ground" States

The music legend Stevie Wonder has announced he is boycotting Florida and all other states with "Stand Your Ground" laws in the aftermath of George Zimmerman’s acquittal. During a performance in Canada, Wonder said he would no longer perform in Florida until "Stand Your Ground" is repealed.

Stevie Wonder: "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."
