MSNBC Host: I Hope Trayvon Martin ‘Whooped the S*** Out of George Zimmerman’

"I hope [Martin] tried to stay alive."

MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry said Monday that she hoped Trayvon Martin "whooped the s**t out of George Zimmerman" before he was fatally shot.

The remarks came during a speech at Cornell University. Martin was killed by Zimmerman who was later acquitted for the 2012 incident that ignited national controversy.

"I hope [Martin] tried to stay alive," Harris-Perry said, speaking at the university's Martin Luther King Jr. Commemorative Lecture. "I hope he knew that he lived in a state with a 'Stand Your Ground' law."

"And I hope he whooped the s**t out of George Zimmerman. And it's not disreputable because he encountered a stranger who was prepared to kill him and you know how I know? Because he killed him," the MSNBC host added.

Harris-Perry's speech was titled "We Can't Breathe: The Continuing Consequences of Inequality," according to Mediaite.
