George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watchman who shot an unarmed teenager in Sanford, Florida, no longer has a web presence.
Zimmerman's website, which was used to solicit money to pay his living expenses and legal bills, has been taken down.
Trayvon Martin supporters were angered by Zimmerman's lack of remorse for Trayvon on the website. Instead, Zimmerman posted pictures of racist graffiti, and whined about his inability to get a job due to death threats.
According to the Orlando Sentinel, a spokesman for Zimmerman's attorney Mark O'Mara said Wednesday the website was taken down intentionally, and that people should not look for it to come back.
It is very difficult for a narcissist to resist a good source of narcissistic supply for very long. In Nicki Minaj's case, it only took 9 days for her to reboot her Twitter page after deleting it in a classic narcissistic rage.
It will take less time than that for Nicki to re-gain her millions of followers -- at which time she will likely end her Stans' suffering by posting a tweet.
Last week Nicki said a voice in her head told her to delete her Twitter page. She also indicated she would be back, saying she hoped her Stans would wait for her.
Twitter allows users 30-days to reactivate deleted accounts. So expect to see a lot more narcissistic celebs throwing Twitter tantrums and deleting their accounts, only to return before the 30-day grace period is over.

Rapper Nicki Minaj, 29, flew into a rage on Sunday and deleted her Twitter page, leaving millions of her Stans steaming mad.
According to loyal reader Ashland, Nicki became enraged when the webmaster of www.nickidaily.com, "one of her biggest supports and fan sites," posted leaked a music sampler of Nicki's latest CD on the website -- "and Nicki went ape shit and had her followers bash her" on Twitter.com.
In response to the bashing, Ashland says the webmaster abruptly shut down her website and deleted her Twitter account. That's when Nikki's followers -- the sane ones -- started bashing Nicki for being an online bully.
An exasperated Nicki tweeted: "Like seriously, its but so much a person can take. Good fucking bye," -- before deleting her Twitter account.
This all goes to show you how immature and irresponsible some celebrities can be. I mean really, a superstar like Nicki should know that bullying -- whether online or in person -- can drive an unstable person to commit suicide.
And, let's face it, most celebrity Stans are a bit unstable.

TMZ.com reports that Andrew Bretbart has died at age 43, of a possible heart attack.
TMZ reports that Breitbart collapsed and died early this morning, just after midnight.
If you recall, Breitbart is the right wing blogger who broke the Shirley Sherrod video scandal in 2010.
The Obama administration caught flack for forcing Mrs. Sherrod to resign from the USDA after Breitbart edited a video to show her as a biased racist.
Brietbart's popular website Breitbart.com, was also responsible for breaking the Anthony Weiner penis pic scandal last year. And Breitbart.com published a series of videos exposing President Obama's community organization group ACORN.
Andrew is survived by his wife and 4 children.
Breitbart's father-in-law told reporters Andrew was walking near his Brentwood home around midnight when he collapsed.
The father-in-law says someone saw Andrew collapse and called paramedics ... who raced to the scene and tried to revive him. Breitbart was transported to UCLA Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.
According to reports, Breitbart suffered from heart problems last year.
Rapper Tyga's name is synonymous with gay. Whenever someone mentions "gay rapper," Tyga's name often jumps to the forefront of the discussion.
If you recall, Tyga was the rapper sitting with Chris Brown in the Bentley outside a Miami nightclub, when the singer snatched a fan's cell phone for captured incriminating evidence of the two men.
So it seems odd that Tyga would hurl anti-gay slurs on his Twitter page after another gossip blog outed him... again. Expect to see a statement soon from angry gay groups demanding an apology or retraction from Mr. Tyga.
Yesterday I received an email containing a "pre-bridal" video of 'Basketball Wives' cast member Evelyn Lozada preparing for her manufactured wedding to NFL player Chad Ochocinco this Summer.
I immediately sent the email to the trash bin without viewing the video. But Essence magazine posted the video on the front page of their website, where my good blog friend Gina viewed it.
Gina, owner of Whataboutourdaughters.com, wrote a scathing editorial about Essence magazine's decision to post the video on its front page.
In her post, Gina blasted Essence.com for promoting a "bridal" photo shoot of Evelyn Lozada on the front page of the website. Gina referred to Lozada as "a hyperviolent, Black woman hating, foul mouth scourge." And she asked where was the logic in highlighting the non-black Ms. Lozada on a website whose tag line is "Where Black women come first."

...that Love is blind.
Reality maven Kim Kardashian won a civil settlement against her former publicist, celebrity blogger Jonathan Jaxson -- barring him from spilling any more teas about her.
On Wednesday, the 31-year-old E! star's lawyers issued a statement to Us Weekly, saying: "Kim Kardashian is very happy to announce that she has reached a settlement of her claims against Jonathan Jaxson. . .Kim is extremely pleased with the outcome of the matter."
It's highly unlikely that their settlement includes any monetary damages -- since Jaxson doesn't have any money. It more than likely includes language ordering Jaxson to keep his mouth shut -- or else.
According to US magazine, As part of the settlement, Jaxson issued a public apology on his official website. "I wanted to apologize publicly to Kim Kardashian for any confusion that I may have caused by the personal statements I made recently regarding Kim Kardashian," Jaxson wrote. "I would like to further clarify that I did not have any first hand knowledge of Kim's relationship with Kris."
Jaxson's official website is no longer online, probably per the settlement agreement.
Despite Kardashian's denials, there is no doubt that Jaxson once worked for Kardashian. There are videos and photos online of them together during happier times... if you feel like searching.
Plus, back in 2007, I met Jaxson at a party that I was hired to shoot for one of his clients (a Soap star whose name I can't recall). Jaxson was your typical loose cannon who could not stop dishing the dirt about his other clients -- Lindsay Lohan and Kim Kardashian.
Hopefully, Jaxson has learned his lesson to stop running his mouth so much and save all his dirt for a book... like I'm doing.
According to Huffington Post, a writer is so incensed that Rihanna went back to Chris Brown -- he is offering $1,000 to anyone who inflicts serious bodily harm on Brown.
Violence never solves anything, but that didn't stop a writer named Kevin Seccia, from offering a $1,000 prize to the first person who beats up Chris Brown.
In a blog post, Seccia wrote that Brown "is a horrible human being," and argues that he doesn't even pretend to be sorry for "brutally assaulting and threatening to kill a woman," and shows no awareness of what he's done. For those reasons he's offering the cash prize to the first person to deliver documented proof that they hit Brown with "at least two solid punches." For legal reasons, Seccia writes that his offer is partially a joke, but he seems serious about wanting some karma to come Brown's way.
Another high-profile hater is country singer Miranda Lambert. She was one of the first to express her disgust at Brown's performance at the Grammys and got caught in a Twitter feud of her own with the 22-year-old R&B singer. Brown responded directly to Lambert with a sarcastic tweet: "Using my name to get publicity? I love it! Perform your heart out! Go buy Miranda Lambert album! So motivational and 'PERFECT'!"
Lambert doesn't seem to want to drop the issue anytime soon. At a concert on Thursday in Amherst, Mass., she spoke out against domestic violence. "I just have to speak my mind, because where I come from, beating up on a woman is never okay. So that's why my daddy taught me early on in life how to use a shotgun."

Poor Karrueche Tran. The aspiring model got herself mixed up with a narcissist who is now creeping with other women whose F.A.M.E. can boost his failing career. Sound familiar? I tried to warn Karrueche through her closest friends, but she wouldn't listen to them. Now they say she's depressed and taking sedatives to mask her pain, so she can sleep at night.
Chris jetted Karrueche to Miami for Valentine's Day -- the same day he was seen creeping with Lil Wayne's baby mama, Sarah ViVan, who flew to Los Angeles from Atlanta to "hang out" with CB.
Now Karrueche is the laughing stock of the industry after Rihanna took Chris Brown back -- and totally disrespect his lover on her "Birthday Cake" remix. Sources say Rihanna made CB disrespect Karrueche to force him to prove his love to her -- and CB didn't hesitate.

Radaronline reports that troubled singer Chris Brown's mom is furious at his latest online antics. Radar Online says Joyce Hawkins is angry that Brown, 22, took to his Twitter page to tell his "Haters" to "f*ck off" after things were seemingly going so well for him.
You're probably asking where his mom has been through all of his past Twitter outbursts? Allegedly, Joyce Brown is "scared" of her son's narcissistic rages, which she has been on the receiving end of.
Meanwhile, “Joyce is absolutely livid that those vile words and rants were posted on Chris’ Twitter page. She isn’t buying his excuse that he didn’t post it and she has told him that it is his Twitter page, and only he should be posting to it, period,” a source close to the situation tells RadarOnline.com.
“She feels like people were just waiting for a negative reaction to what others were saying about him. She had begged Chris to just ignore it and she is just beside herself that after such successful performances at the Grammys and winning the award, people are now talking about this Twitter controversy. … It’s time for Chris to grow up, and his mother told him that. Chris is his own worst enemy at times and she constantly worries about how he is going to react to stressful situations.”
According to sports groupie, Stiletto Jill:
Floyd posted on Twitter Monday night that the only reason why Knicks breakout star point guard Jeremy Lin is getting attention is because he’s Asian. I’m going to attempt to play advocate for Floyd for a second. There are a very small number of Asians in the league. That’s true. Obviously Yao Ming was a superstar. There was Wang Zhi-Zhi, Sun Yee and maybe a handful of others.
I agree with Floyd and Jill. I'm glad I don't live in New York where the media overhypes everything. I watched Lin play and I don't see the big deal. He is a typical ball hog who misses more shots than he hits, rather than passing the ball to the open man.
Judge a player by his season stats, not over 6 games against weak opponents.
Why is it that when a celebrity debuts her new weave hairstyle, we blogs have to write a new post about it?
As far as I'm concerned, weave is no different from lacefronts or wigs; it's all artificial hair to me. So why make a big deal about it? Did the media in the 60s write articles every time Diana Ross debuted a new wig?
Last night, R&B Diva Monica, who I love like a niece, tweeted a pic of her new weave. But instead of tweeting "new hair", she tweeted "new color!" That tweet left me baffled. I thought when we announce we have a new color, we're supposed to mean our own hair?
Mo later clarified that the new color was in reference to her own hair. She then acknowledged her new hair by declaring, "I bought it."
That's fine. But when a man buys a new car that's a different color than his last vehicle, does he pull up to his boy's crib and shout, "hey dawg, new color!"
One of Pooch Hall's followers on social networking website Twitter.com is questioning his marital status after he sent out flirtatious tweets on his Twitter page.
Loyal reader Tricia writes:
Hey Sandra, can we find out if Pooch Hall is still married. It disturbs me on twitter how he just flirts with these women. And he NEVER mentions anything about spending time with his wife and kids. She must be a good one, couldn't be me.
After checking Pooch Hall's Twitter page, it seems Tricia is right: Pooch is conducting himself as if he's a single man -- at least online. In one tweet to a female follower, Pooch wrote: "...my breath smells like fresh sex wit a hint of cinnamon and crest!"
For any other married man, this type of tweet would be inappropriate and disrespectful to his wife. But does his fame make a difference? Does anyone know if he's a single man?
They say if you want to get black people to join together in protesting a cause, just put it on the side of a bandwagon and we will all jump on board.
Yesterday, a few of your favorite urban blogs "went dark" in protest of 2 anti-piracy bills that has the Internet in an uproar. Urban bloggers, who certainly meant well, blacked out their blogs yesterday while the TMZ's and the YouTube's -- websites that these bills would most likely affect -- stayed in business as usual.
We never take the 10 minutes to research anything. We just jump on the first bandwagon that comes along because everyone else is on it -- or because Russell Simmons tolds us to.
HELLO! The government already has the power to shut websites down. They're doing it every day.
