George Zimmerman Finally Suspended From Twitter for Posting Semi-Nude Photos of Woman

George Zimmerman has finally been suspended from Twitter.

Published December 4, 2015

Many have been waiting for this moment for a long time. George Zimmerman has been suspended from Twitter for slut shaming an ex-girlfriend on his account.

He has previously posted arguably offensive messages, most recently retweeting a photo of Trayvon Martin's dead body. We're surprised that distasteful act didn't get him suspended, since Zimmerman was on trial for second-degree murder in the shooting death of the 17-year-old teen.  

But the Twitter powers that be decided to kick him off his social media soap box after he posted pictures of a semi-naked woman, along with her contact information, and accused her of sleeping with a "dirty Muslim" on Wednesday. 

Zimmerman violated one of Twitter's community rules, which bans "revenge porn" from being posted. "You may not post intimate photos or videos that were taken or distributed without the subject's consent," their policy states.
