Farrah Abraham Does Not Know Who Trayvon Martin Is
Farrah Abraham is either blossoming into a genius young public relations guru or has never read a newspaper in her life. In an interview with "Matty P's Radio Happy Hour," the "Backdoor Teen Mom" star revealed that she has no idea who Trayvon Martin is.
"I feel like I've met her or something," she said. "It sounds so familiar...I don't know what she is so I can't picture the person with the name right now."
TMZ broke the story, and the full interview can be heard here.
