WSmith041511_18_200.jpg LOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - A fake tweet accredited to Will Smith comparing Trayvon Martin's killing and Kim Kardashian's flour bomb incident has gone viral on Twitter.

The tweet, which said "WE live in America where a girl that threw flour on Kim Kardashian was arrested on site But the man who KILLED Trayvon Martin is still free," was posted under the account @RealWillSmith. Many celebrities like Spike Lee and Rosie O'Donnell have retweeted the quote, despite the actor having no official Twitter account. It's been reported that the account actually belongs to a man in Nashville, TN.

This isn't the first false celebrity tweet regarding the tragic death of the 17-year-old Florida native. The account @RealFerrelWill tweeted "R.I.P. Trayvon Martin. For every R-T this tweet gets, $1 will be donated to the #TrayvonMartin Foundation, which helps counteract racism."
