Trayvon Martin Killer George Zimmerman Proves He's a Racist Homophobe

Trayvon Martin Killer George Zimmerman Proves He's a Racist Homophobe

If it was unclear whether George Zimmerman — aquitted of second-degree murder in the 2012 shooting death of black teen Trayvon Martin — was actually a racist, his Twitter feed clears up any confusion. And now it's also apparent he hates gays too.

Zimmerman, who has a Confederate flag as his Twitter avatar, tweeted the following in response to a gay black man named Vester Lee Flanagan murdering two young journalists in Virginia on live TV Wednesday: 

In fact, Obama has addressed the Virginia killings in several statements with local media over the past 24 hours, notes USA Today, saying the death of two journalists "breaks my heart" and using the shooting as an opportunity to call for "common sense" gun legislation to address the fact that "the number of people who die from gun-related incidents around this country dwarfs any deaths that happen through terrorism."  

Nevertheless, Zimmerman calls the president "a baboon" in another tweet, threatens violence against others, and calls some users names like "cupcake." He also retweeted homophobic posts, including this one seen below — which appears to allude to Obama's statement when Zimmerman killed the unarmed Martin that the 17-year-old "could have been my son."
