Geraldo Rivera attacks hoodies on "Fox & Friends"

Geraldo Rivera attacked hoodie-wearers the world over this morning, as part of some sort of -- well who knows what it was! -- analysis of the Trayvon Martin shooting in Florida, during an appearance on "Fox and Friends." And the reaction has been swift and merciless: Around two this afternoon Twitter exploded in rage (a lot of Tweeps don't seem to watch "Fox and Friends,"  but far be it for me to make some broad and ridiculous observation). Actor-comedian Aziz Ansari told Geraldo to do something to himself. 

 Someone else -- Joe Flint of the Los Angeles Times -- pointed out that Bill Belichick should be furious, too.  

Geraldo, per a Politico transcript: “It’s those crime-scene surveillance tapes. Every time you see someone sticking up a 7-Eleven, the kid’s wearing a hoodie. Every time you see a mugging on a surveillance camera or they get the old lady in the alcove, it’s a kid wearing a hoodie. You have to recognize that this whole stylizing yourself as a gangsta — you’re going to be a gangsta wannabe? Well, people are going to perceive you as a menace."

 In any event, the Huffington Post -- no friend of Fox (ha!) -- has found a video and posted. Watch and feel to post your own diatribe...
