‘You’re a disgusting human being’: George Zimmerman provokes fury on Twitter AGAIN after posting image of Trayvon Martin’s lifeless body.

George Zimmerman incited a slew of backlash on Sunday when he retweeted a photo of the body of Travyon Martin, the unarmed black teenager he shot and killed in February 2012. A Twitter user — under the handle @SeriousSlav — wrote “@TheRealGeorgeZ Z-Man is a one man army” to go with a picture of a mortally wounded Trayvon Martin, according to Raw Story.Since then, he has had a series of run-ins with the law and courted online controversy a number of times by bragging about killing the African-American teenager on social media.

He was arrested on charges of aggravated assault, battery and criminal mischief after his then-girlfriend said he pointed a gun at her face during an argument. Twitter deleted the tweet shortly afterwards, according to the New York Daily News, but Zimmerman’s account remains filled with plenty of disturbing tweets, including one that reads “Cops lives matter, black slime doesnt [sic]”. The picture — which was used as evidence in the trial that ended with Zimmerman’s acquittal — shows Martin’s body lying on grass as investigators stand over it. As you already know, despite the evidence that included Zimmerman popping a bullet into chamber of the nine millimeter semi-automatic handgun and disobeying the orders of a dispatcher and aggressively confronting Martin, he was acquitted of all charges.

Zimmerman’s post-trial behavior, however, have given many people pause and suggest that he was perhaps guilty in starting the fight that led to Martin’s murder. Let that sink in America.” Last month, he responded to a hostile tweet by referring to Martin. “We all know how it ended for the last moron that hit me,” Zimmerman replied. “Give it a whirl, cupcake.” And following his third arrest for domestic violence allegations earlier this year, Zimmerman’s lawyer admitted his client ‘has not been lucky with the ladies.’ Zimmerman also branded President Obama an ‘ignorant baboon’ for his statements about the high number of gun-related deaths in America after the on-air shooting of WDBJ reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward.

In August, the Boys & Girls Club denounced Zimmerman’s using the organization’s name while hawking prints of his painting of the Confederate battle flag. The tweet was posted just days after Zimmerman took the stand at a probable cause hearing in the case against Matthew Apperson, the man accused of shooting at him in May.
