NBA superstar Kobe Bryant is in hot water for comments he made to the New Yorker magazine about slain Florida teenager Trayvon Martin.
Kobe seemed to sympathize with the teen’s killer, George Zimmerman, when he used Trayvon as an analogy to explain his belief that American blacks choose their battles based on skin color rather than studying the merits of a situation before reacting irrationally.
George Zimmerman, the Florida man who was acquitted last summer of killing 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, signed autographs at an Orlando gun show over the weekend. Reportedly only 20 people showed up in 6 hours.
The George Zimmerman fight is canceled I'm sorry for anyone I hurt with this but this was a very big opportunity thank you

That “celebrity” boxing match between child killer George Zimmerman and washed up rapper DMX is off.
The Internet is buzzing about the upcoming “celebrity” boxing match between disgraced rapper DMX and child killer George Zimmerman on March 1. The fact that anyone considers Zimmerman to be a celebrity is nauseating. The fact that urban blogs are covering this story with apparent amusement is shameful.
The fact is, any boxing match involving Zimmerman will almost certainly be a fraud.
Someone is ready to splash out serious cash for an “original hand painting” by unemployed nightwatchman George Zimmerman. Zimmerman is auctioning his painting on eBay.com to raise cash to pay off his mounting debts. With one day left in the auction, the bidding has reached $100,099.99. But a sharp-eyed New York mag writer says the waving image in Zimmerman’s painting was stolen from a popular Internet stock image.
NY Mag writer Joe Coscarelli wrote: “The patriotic work appears to be copied directly, if not ripped off completely, from a generic stock image.”
The Florida defense attorney who helped win an acquittal for George Zimmerman is under investigation by the Florida bar. You may recall that Mark O’Mara famously dumped his problem-plagued client after claiming the former neighborhood watchman owed him $2.5 million in attorney’s fees.
Bids for an original painting by George Zimmerman reached nearly $100,000 on eBay.com. Zimmerman, who was acquitted of killing 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, is auctioning the painting under the username: therealgeorgez.
