Stevie Wonder announced this week he wouldn’t perform in Florida anymore, or any state that has a Stand Your Ground Law. Martin Luther King, III added to the boycott saying people should not even buy Florida oranges or orange juice that comes from Florida.

A moveon.org petition that states, “We’re boycotting Florida tourism until the "stand your ground" law is overturned. Your state is not a safe place to vacation if your citizens are able to kill anyone they deem suspicious," has nearly 10,000 signatures.
