Uh oh. Ken Bone did a Reddit ‘Ask Me Anything’ Q&A with fans on Oct. 13, and some people aren’t thrilled with what he had to say. The viral star from the second presidential debate seemed to believe that Trayvon Martin’s murder was ‘justified,’ and that’s not all! We have all the details, here.
Apparently, adorable, cuddly Ken Bone has a dark side. Fans were devastated on Oct. 14 when he said during a Reddit AMA that he thinks Trayvon Martin being shot and killed by George Zimmerman was “justified.” “From what I read about the case the shooting of Trayvon was justified, but from what I’ve learned of Zimmerman through statements, interviews, and behavior he is a big ole sh*t bird. Bad guy legally kills kid in self-defense. Sucks for everyone.”

Many Americans feel that even though George was ruled “not guilty,” that he absolutely was not justified in the murder of a 17-year-old unarmed kid. And apparently, despite his comments, neither does Ken. “Just because it was justified, doesn’t mean it was right,” Ken later explained to TMZ. “Trayvon’s death was a tragedy.”
However, that’s not all of the dirt discovered amongst his AMA. Since he used his real username, other fans quickly dug up some questionable comments from posts. On one photo of a pregnant woman in a bikini, Ken called her a “beautiful human submarine.” In another post, he explain how he created fraudulent insurance cards to get a job. In yet another, he said “I never realized the white power ranger was so beautiful.” All of which are honestly still kind of adorable in a totally dorky way.
