George Zimmerman Retweets Trayvon Martin Photo
In 2013, former Florida neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman was acquitted in the fatal shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, a Black teenager who was murdered as he walked home from a convenience store in Feb. 2012.
Since being let off of the hook, Zimmerman has been involved in a series of altercations, including a domestic dispute where his then-girlfriend accused him of threatening her life.
One of his pasttimes appears to be trolling people on Twitter. His latest stunt? Retweeting a photo of Trayvon Martin’s dead body after a “fan” tweeted it to him.
Twitter users reported the incident, and the site’s administrators removed the tweet. Like any decent human being would, users on the site expressed their views on Zimmerman’s absurd behavior.
There are plenty of innocent people living on Death Row. Meanwhile George Zimmerman is tweeting pictures of an innocent black kid he killed.
