Two Cape Coral Men Dress As Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman For Halloween
In perhaps a new low for the City of Cape Coral, two residents of Cape Coral dressed up as George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin for Halloween, complete with blackface and a blood-stained hoodie.
Greg Cimeno — dressed as Zimmerman and wearing a “neighborhood watch” shirt — and Filene — covering his face in black paint and wearing a sweatshirt covered in blood. Both live in Cape Coral.
George Zimmerman was the neighborhood watch captain who earlier this year was acquitted in shooting an unarmed Trayvon Martin in 2012.
The crass Halloween photo has now gone viral on facebook, with many expressing outrage over the costumes.
The picture was originally posted on Caitlin Cimeno’s Facebook page (Caitlin is the woman pictured in the middle) and has since been taken down. But as the trio have since learned, once something is posted on the Internet, it stays there forever.
“Anything for a laugh,” Greg Cimeno commented before the picture’s removal. In another comment he said, “Not too funny. It’s f****** hilarious!!!”
But a lot of people aren’t laughing in SW Florida.
What do you think about this???
