Geraldo Rivera Trayvon MartinFox News correspondent Geraldo Rivera has stuck his foot all in his mouth last night on Fox News. When discussing the tragedy of Trayvon Martin, Rivera had a few comments that didn’t sit too well with the public. Rivera blamed Trayvon Martin’s murder on him wearing a hoodie, despite the fact it was raining. Geraldo Rivera said, But I am urging the parents of black and Latino youngsters particularly to not let their children go out wearing hoodies. I think the hoodie is as much responsible for Trayvon Martin’s death as George Zimmerman was.” Yes, you read correctly. Geraldo Rivera went on to say, “Every time you see someone sticking up a 7-11, the kid is wearing a hoodie. [...] When you see a black or Latino youngster, particularly on the street, you walk to the other side of the street.”

So will Geraldo Rivera be suspended for his comments like Roland S. Martin was suspended from CNN for his remarks during the Super Bowl? Check the full clip below.
