George Zimmerman Booted Off Dating App Yet Again After Creating Unverified Profile

It looks like George Zimmerman won’t be getting any hot lovin’ anytime soon.

Dating app Bumble booted Zimmerman off its platform this week after the disgraced neighborhood watchman was caught trolling for dates, The New York Post reported.

This is the second time Zimmerman has been kicked off the site since December.

A profile for the Florida man, who was acquitted in the fatal shooting of Black teen Trayvon Martin, was sniffed out by app moderators who quickly shuttered the account, a company spokesman told the newspaper.

“George Zimmerman was blocked and banned in December 2018 when we first discovered his profile,” the spokesman said via email. “We’ve blocked and banned him again after we were informed by our users that he had created a new unverified profile.”

Zimmerman’s ouster comes just days after the Orlando Weekly published screenshots from his dating profile, which included pictures of him sporting a cap and gown, along with other snaps of him posed shirtless and hanging out with his Rottweiler. The profile mentions he is self-employed, but is also working as a “jury consultant.”

“Let’s get coffee and cake pops; I’m looking for a mature and fun woman that’s ready to be loved and respected the way she deserves and is able to reciprocate,” Zimmerman wrote on his profile, adding that his third grade teacher once dubbed him her “favorite student” and the “class clown.”

However, nowhere does he mention his repeated run-ins with the law, including the time he was arrested on felony aggravated assault charges for allegedly pointing a gun at his then- girlfriend. Zimmerman, who was once punched in the face for bragging about Martin’s 2012 killing, also recently pleaded no contest to stalking charges filed against him by a private investigator involved in rapper Jay-Zs documentary on the slain teen.

“We have thousands of moderators working tirelessly with our users to make Bumble the safest and most empowering social networking platform and this is another example of those efforts,” a Bumble representative told the Post.

Screenshots show Zimmerman has also been known to frequent website OKCupid, but it’s unclear if that site managers have plans to remove him as well.

Detailing the six things he couldn’t live without, Zimmerman listed his dog, “my nephew, my faith, my integrity, my dignity and my country.” He noted that he spends a lot of time “thinking about how to help others” and can be found hanging out with family and friends on a typical Friday night.

“I’ve been gifted with intuition, honest and the ability to listen,” his OkCupid profile reads. “I’m really just looking for friends. Someone to go to dinner or a movie.”
