‘Ni**er lover!’: George Zimmerman kicked out of Florida bar after racist clash with waitress
George Zimmerman was kicked out of a Florida bar on Wednesday night after using racist language, the New York Daily News reports.
According to the bar’s manager, Angel Benitez and the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office report, Zimmerman became belligerent and started yelling at a waitress.
The manager also said that this was not the first incident involving Zimmerman at that bar, according to WKMG. Benitez also told police that he wanted to have Zimmerman banned.
Zimmerman reportedly said to Benitez, “I didn’t know you were a (racial expletive) lover.” When Zimmerman was removed from the bar, he claimed that he had been assaulted by a black man.
Benitez told the Daily News, “We don’t tolerate any racial or bad behavior so that’s why we trespassed him.”
Authorities reported that Zimmerman was not the only person in his party using racist language.
Zimmerman is a former neighborhood watch patroller who first made national headlines in 2012 when he fatally shot a 17-year-old unarmed black teen, Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman alleged that it was self-defense and he was acquitted.
When writing his narrative of the event for the police report, Zimmerman wrote, “I want to press charges. The narrative on the front is true and correct. Officer Nickell is an incompetent officer under qualified to flip burgers.”
