When he's not organizing "Justice for Trayvon" rallies, the Rev. Al Sharpton is cuddling up to his new girlfriend, who is 23 years his junior.

The 58-year-old civil rights activist and MSNBC host has been dating 35-year-old stylist Aisha McShaw for months, sources told the New York Daily News.

The two appeared together Monday night at the New York County Democratic Committee Awards Ceremony where McShaw told reporters, "I'm his girlfriend," before Sharpton ushered her away from the media.

Sharpton separated from his wife of 24 years, Kathy Sharpton, in 2004.

Twitter users were struck by the severe age difference between Sharpton and his new girlfriend and spoke out about it.

Sharpton made headlines recently as a staunch Trayvon Martin supporter. On Saturday after George Zimmerman was acquitted in the shooting death of the 17-year-old, Sharpton spoke out, calling the verdict "an atrocity."

"What this jury has done is establish a precedent that when you are young and fit a certain profile, you can be killed and someone can claim self-defense," he told reporters. "We had to march to even get a trial and even at trial, when [Zimmerman is] exposed over and over again as a liar, he is acquitted."

Sharpton announced Tuesday he is organizing a national "Justice for Trayvon" day this weekend, according to CBS News.
