How bad is the backlash against Geraldo Rivera for blaming Trayvon Martin's shooting death on his choice of clothing? His own son is piling on.
"My own son just wrote to say he's ashamed of my position re hoodies [sic]," Rivera tweeted on Friday. "Still I feel parents must do whatever they can to keep their kids safe."
Still, even some tough love from his family wouldn't deter him from his mission to convince black and latino youth to stay away from sweatshirts.
"It's not blaming the victim Its common sense-look like a gangsta&some armed schmuck will take you at your word," he added.
On FOX News the same morning, Rivera said: “I think the hoodie is as much responsible for Trayvon Martin’s death as George Zimmerman was.”
