Social Media in Uproar After George Zimmerman Posts Pics of Trayvon Martin

George Zimmerman retweeted an image over the weekend showing the body of Trayvon Martin, the Black teenager he shot and killed without conviction three years ago.

A Zimmerman supporter tweeted the photo to him, including with the caption: “Z-Man is a one man army.”



The graphic photo shows Martin’s body lying on grass as investigators stand over him. The photo, which was used in court as evidence in Zimmerman’s trial, has since been removed from his timeline.

Zimmerman’s retweet caused an uproar around Twitter, with even celebrities commenting in disgust.
