On February 26, 2012, 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was fatally shot by George Zimmerman in Sanford, Florida. Although Zimmerman was not initially charged with a crime, the case garnered national media attention, which led to Zimmerman being tried for second degree murder before he was later acquitted.

On the fifth anniversary of Martin’s death, celebrities have taken to social media to pay their respects.
