This man was found not guilty for murder (Trayvon Martin)… look at this pic he took? U know what it tells u? This man right here never had any intention of Trayvon getting home safe! BUT we wonder why racial tension exists! As no one continues to “check” him on his actions! George beat that case but he’s not gonna escape KARMA! ✌🏾
Comedian Gary Owen went to social media to let loose his anger toward Zimmerman.
The pics originally stem from the “Rest in Power: The Trayvon Martin Story” six-part TV documentary which premiered in July.
The controversial image can be glimpsed at around the 27 minute mark of the final episode, as Andy Hallinan, the owner of a Florida gun shop that teamed up with Zimmerman to sell Confederate flag paintings after his Florida Gun Supply store was maligned for declaring itself as a “Muslim Free Zone,” recounts a “party trick” Zimmerman used to do for his fans: ‘One of the big party tricks that George would do is that he’d always have a few bags of skittles in his pocket then when somebody mentioned something like “Hey, good job,” George’s response would be to take a bag of skittles, sign it, then hand it out.’ (Snopes)
On the recent “Talk Up” song, rap star JAY-Z references the fatal slaying of rapper XXXTentacion and questions the streets for not taking out George Zimmerman.
On Scorpion, the rap icon makes an appearance on ‘Talk Up’, and opens up on the shooting that killed XXXTentacion just last week. The moment comes as Jay reflects upon the death of Trayvon Martin, the Florida teenager killed by George Zimmerman in 2012. “Y’all killed X and let Zimmerman live, streets is done”, Jay raps on the track.
