George Zimmerman Trolls Obama On Twitter After VA Shooting

Blake Neff | Reporter

George Zimmerman, the man notorious for shooting Travyon Martin in a 2012 killing that was ruled to be in self-defense, went on Twitter over the past two days to blast a “racist” President Barack Obama following Wednesday’s murder of two reporters in Roanoke, Va.

Zimmerman first joined Twitter in December of 2013, and has generally been a quiet user, with about 1,350 total tweets. But following the killing of Alison Parker and Adam Ward in Virginia, which appears to have been partly racially motivated, Zimmerman unleashed a torrent of mockery and criticism against President Obama, referring to him as a racist and a “baboon:”

Zimmerman didn’t shy away at all from the topic of his own shooting of Trayvon Martin in 2012, instead gleefully responding to critics who attacked him over the matter:

When one user suggested that Zimmerman was trolling the Black Lives Matter movement, and that it wouldn’t “end well,” Zimmerman had a ready-made response.
