According to reports, the attack went down at a Florida restaurant called Gators Riverside.
Zimmerman says he was explaining to people at his table that he’d shot Trayvon in self-defense. He says a man who overheard walked up to his table and asked, “You’re bragging about that?” Zimmerman claims the man threatened to kill him and punched him in the face. But there are witnesses reportedly telling a different story — that Zimmerman introduced himself to someone by saying, “My name is George Zimmerman, you know, that guy who killed Trayvon Martin?” (TMZ)
In May, Zimmerman scolded Trayvon Martin’s parents for how they raised him.
“They didn’t raise their son right. He attacked a complete stranger and attempted to kill him,” Zimmerman said of Martin. “Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin did everything they could to capitalize on her son’s death,” he said. “She was never a mother figure to him. Tracy Martin couldn’t have cared less about their son. He treated him like a dog without a leash.” (The Daily Beast)
Earlier this year, rapper T.I. blasted Zimmerman for trying to profit off the weapon he used to kill Martin.
A few months ago, rap star Kendrick Lamar fell victim to a satirical story.
