George Zimmerman Threatens to Feed Jay Z to “An Alligator” Over Trayvon Martin Documentary

Long before there was an orange President giving neo-Nazis a pass, rational non-racist people were pretty unified in the belief that George Zimmerman was sub-human trash. Zimmerman’s 2012 killing of then-17-year-old Trayvon Martin under the guise of self-defense pretty much drove that point home. 

As if Zimmerman’s subsequent attempts to profit from Martin’s killing weren’t enough, Zimmerman offered further proof when asked about Jay Z’s upcoming documentary about Martin.

“A production team headed by docuseries executive producer Michael Gasparro made unannounced visits to his parents and uncle’s homes in Florida in an attempt to get them on camera,” of The Blast noted in a recent report. “He claims that production ‘harassed,’ his family, but refused to elaborate on what the harassment was. He also would not answer whether his family agreed at any point to go on camera with the producers.”

Heaven forbid Zimmerman and his family should be inconvenienced while Martin’s family is subjected to Zimmerman referencing killing their child by telling The Blast, “I know how to handle people who fuck with me, I have since February 2012.” Zimmerman also made it clear that “anyone who f***s with my parents will be fed to an alligator.”

Suffice it to say, empathy for Zimmerman was in short supply.

News of the documentary, entitled Rest in Power: The Trayvon Martin Story, initially emerged in the spring. Jay Z struck a deal with The Weinstein Company to air the project via The Paramount Network. It’s safe to assume Harvey Weinstein won’t be involved in any capacity given recent events, but it appears the documentary is still in production.

At press time, no formal premiere date had been announced for Rest in Power: The Trayvon Martin Story.

Dame Dash on Allegedly Slapping Harvey Weinstein: ‘Somebody Definitely Got Smacked’

Dame Dash is coyly pumping the brakes on a borderline urban myth that he put hands on exiled executive Harvey Weinstein for some allegedly sexist behavior. In the midst of November’s seemingly never-ending stream of Weinstein sexual assault allegations, Cam’ron took to the booth and claimed Dash slapped Weinstein for his allegedly foul behavior. The statement came in the form of one of Cam’s bars on the Diplomats track “Once Upon a Time.”

“No disrespecting the ladies word from my team/That’s the reason Dame smacked Harvey Weinstein/On the set of Paid in Full y’all gave him hell about it/Some foul shit happened once Capo tell ’em ’bout it…” Cam rapped.

When TMZ asked Dash if he indeed “smacked Harvey Weinstein,” he didn’t directly deny putting the proverbial paws on Weinstein. Dash seemed to dance around the answer like someone who was acutely aware of New York’s laws about physical assault and battery.

“I could say that somebody definitely got smacked on the set of Paid in Full,” Dash said. “I’ve never really liked the way Harvey treated my culture. I didn’t like the way he talked to people. I ain’t like the way he was treating my film. I’ve owned clubs with him, and a lot of things that were being alleged, everyone knew what was going on.”

Dame offered more, and if you can get past the casual shade he throws at Just Blaze and Wood Harris, the statement that “a lot of things that were being alleged, everyone knew what was going on” is particularly disturbing. 

Paid in Full was released in 2002, so there were at least a good 15 years of “everybody knew what was going on” before Weinstein had to face any consequences for decades of alleged sexual assaults. 

If you can read between the lines, Dash’s refusal to outright say he didn’t slap Weinstein combined with him claiming he got sued over the smacking (without mentioning the involved parties) leaves more questions than answers.
