George Zimmerman has threatened to physically assault Jay-Z over the docuseries the hip-hop star is producing about Trayvon Martin, 17-year-old Zimmerman shot and killed.
As HuffPost reports, Zimmerman said the production team for the series "harassed" his family, and showed up to his parents' house and uncle's house unannounced to get them to participate in the show. He also claims, the crew trespassed, and that he will "beat Jay-Z" and "anyone who fucks with my parents will be fed to an alligator."
"What I said is I would beat him as if I was Solange, and he would find himself coming out of the south side of a gator if he comes to Florida and bothers my family," Zimmerman told the Orlando Sentinel.
Martin also said, "I know how to handle people who fuck with me, I have since February 2012." Zimmerman killed Martin on February 26, 2012.
Rapper Snoop Dogg responded to Zimmerman's threats with one of his own: "If one hair on Jays hair is touched that’s when the revolution will b televised. . . Trayvon Martin Gone but not forgotten."
Jay-Z produced the Kalief Browder docuseries, which premiered earlier this year, and announced that he would similarly produce a series on Trayvon Martin. The show, titled "Rest In Power: The Trayvon Martin Story," is based on the books "Suspicion Nation: The Inside Story of the Trayvon Martin Injustice" by Lisa Bloom and "Why We Continue to Repeat It as well as Rest in Power: The Enduring Life of Trayvon Martin," written by Martin’s parents.
