George Zimmerman Kicked Out of Bar for Screaming 'N****r Lover'

He's claiming a Black man assaulted him.

Published November 13, 2016

A Florida cigar bar recently asked authorities to escort George Zimmerman out of their establishment for disrespecting a waitress, yelling at her and using racial slurs.

As reported, as Zimmerman was being escorted off the premises, he could be heard saying, "I didn't know you were a n****r lover."

Corona Cigar Co. shared a statement with reporters, saying, "We don't tolerate any racial or bad behavior so that's why we trespassed him."

According to the report, an employee claimed that Zimmerman ripped a credit card out of her hand when she was trying to collect his payment, and shouted at her.

Zimmerman had a different recollection of the incident, claiming that a Black man assaulted him why he was there.

The security footage, however, captured the interaction, during which a man said hello to Zimmerman and tried to shake his hand, a gesture that Zimmerman ignored.
