Perhaps Farrah Abraham should read up on her current events. While talking to Matty P's Radio Happy Hour this week, the former Teen Mom star was unaware who Trayvon Martin was -- confusing the slain teen boy at the center of the highly-publicized George Zimmerman murder trial for a girl.
"I feel like I've met her or something," the 22-year-old mom to Sophia, 4, said. "That sounds so familiar. I don’t know what she is, I can’t picture the person with the name right now."
Her answer sparked much surprise and shock from listeners, as the February death of Martin, 17, sparked a heated debate about racial profiling across the country. (During the Feb. 26 altercation, Zimmerman, 29, a neighborhood watch volunteer, claimed he shot Martin in self-defense.) When Zimmerman was found not guilty of second-degree murder and was acquitted of manslaughter on Saturday, July 13, many celebrities -- and even President Obama -- weighed in on the sentence.
For now, Abraham, who recently released a sex tape and attended rehab for alcohol abuse in June, isn't worrying about her flub. "It's hard being a hot single mom, but somebodys gottta be it :) #LoveLife," she tweeted on Tuesday, July 16.
