Trayvon Martin’s father, Tracy, said Thursday it was difficult to listen to testimony about his son, particularly the negative comments, during George Zimmerman’s trial.

“That wasn’t the Trayvon that we raised. That wasn’t the Trayvon that we knew, and that we love,” he said during a Thursday night interview on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360.”

Still, Trayvon Martin’s mother, Sybrina Fulton, said that she felt the need to sit through every day of Zimmerman’s trial because her son was “not here to say anything for himself.”

She said that she wanted to “show a face” for her son.
