Stevie Wonder Boycotts Florida In Wake Of George Zimmerman Verdict (VIDEO)

Stevie Wonder is among the celebrities who disagreed with the George Zimmerman acquittal, so much so that Wonder announced he is boycotting Florida as a result.

On Sunday, Wonder, 63, shared his decision at a concert in Quebec City, where he pledged that he won't put on shows in the home state of Trayvon Martin until its "Stand Your Ground" law no longer exists.

"I decided today that until the Stand Your Ground law is abolished in Florida, I will never perform there again," Wonder revealed to the audience.

Wonder noted that he would also avoid any other area with a similar law. "As a matter of fact, wherever I find that law exists, I will not perform in that state or in that part of the 

world," he continued.

Wonder explained his decision: "The truth is that - for those of you who've lost in the battle for justice, wherever that fits in any part of the world - we can't bring them back. What we can do is we can let our voices be heard. And we can vote in our various countries throughout the world for change and equality for everybody. That's what I know we can do."

What do you think of Stevie Wonder's decision?
