George Zimmerman Calls Black Lives Matter ‘Terrorist Cowards’ During Trial
George Zimmerman Calls Black Lives Matter ‘Terrorist Cowards’ During Trial (Mediaite)
George Zimmerman continued testifying in the attempted murder trial of Matthew Apperson, who allegedly shot at Zimmerman while they were both driving last year. Things got rather contentious when an attorney questioning Zimmerman brought up Black Lives Matter.
The clip below shows the lawyer asking about whether Black Lives Matter movement started after Trayvon Martin’s death, but Zimmerman took issue with the term “movement.” “I don’t believe Black Lives Matter is a movement, sir, they’re terrorist cowards,” Zimmerman stated.
The attorney asked if the movement, organization, or “whatever you want to call it” started with Zimmerman’s trial where he was acquitted of murdering Martin. Zimmerman said, “I couldn’t testify whether they did or not.”
