For February 5, 2016, that is the day Trayvon Martin would be turning 21 if he was still alive today. Conservative activist Ben Shapiro sent out a tweet below, but his critics did not like it.
Trayvon Martin would have turned 21 today if he hadn't taken a man's head and beaten it on the pavement before being shot.

In response, Shapiro has received numerous death threats. These were just some of them.
@benshapiro I truly wish you would say something like this in person to any thinking adult. You would get the shit beaten out of you.

@benshapiro I hope somebody with a gun decides to harras your son and in defending himself gets shot. Since it was justice in your eyes.

These twitter users don’t have to agree with Shapiro, but it doesn’t make it ok to ever send death threats to him.
