Trayvon Martin's mom files trademark papers

SANFORD, Fla. – The mother of slain Florida teenager Trayvon Martin has filed papers seeking to trademark two slogans based on his name.

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office filings by Sybrina Fulton are for the sayings "I Am Trayvon" and "Justice For Trayvon." The applications were filed last week.
Ooookay, then.

Remember, kids: If you ever use the words "I am Trayvon" in a sentence, you need to send his mom a buck. I'll start carrying a notebook to keep track of my debts.

H/T to Weer'd.

What the fuck is a trayvon? If my mother hung some stupid shit around my neck at birth I'd have sued her for making shit up to get me my ass kicked for being too ghetto.

Her son has been dead HOW long? And she's already thinking about marketing his tragedy???

I suppose next she'll be suing the Million Hoodie Marchers for wearing sweatshirts.

It's beyond creepy. I'd wear a hoodie too if I had a mom like that. Probably a V mask as well. Ugh-ness.

Some people dance in a stranger's blood for... what? Fun?
She's dancing splashing her own son's for money...I might actually throw up.

Claire, it could be that she simply doesn't want anyone doing that without her permission. She may not intend to profit from it at all. On the other hand, stranger things have happened.
