George Zimmerman Threatens Jay-Z Over Upcoming Trayvon Martin Documentary

George Zimmerman is making headlines once again, and of course it’s not for anything good. The Florida native, who was acquitted for the senseless murder of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, has now threatened Jay-Z over a forthcoming docuseries. Earlier this year, it was revealed that Jay was teaming up with The Weinstein Company to produce a docuseries about Martin, Rest in Power: The Trayvon Martin Story.

In an interview with The Blast, Zimmerman said that he would “beat Jay-Z” and feed him “to an alligator,” following claims that producer, Michael Gasparro, and the production team made unannounced visits to the homes of his parents and uncle in an attempt to get them on camera for the series. Zimmerman says the production team “harassed” his family, however he refused to elaborate on what the harassment was and did not clarify if his family agreed to appear on camera.

As The Blast reports, Zimmerman was apparently upset that his ex-wife has reportedly been paid for her participation in the documentary and notes that producers have refused to pay his parents or family members for their involvement.

In a terrifying reference to the death of Trayvon Martin, Zimmerman told the entertainment site, “I know how to handle people who f*** with me, I have since February 2012.”

Following the outlandish threats, Snoop Dogg took to Instagram to respond to Zimmerman’s statements and defend the Brooklyn rapper saying, “If one hair on jays hair is touched that’s when the revolution will b televised,”


Rest in Power: The Trayvon Martin Story is reported to be a follow-up to Spike’s recent collaboration with Jay-Z and The Weinstein Co. Time: The Kalief Browder Story. Set to premiere in 2018, the series is based on the books Suspicion Nation: The Inside Story of the Trayvon Martin Injustice and Why We Continue to Repeat It, by Lisa Bloom and Rest in Power: The Enduring Life of Trayvon Martin, written by Trayvon’s parents.
