Trayvon Martin's murderer, George Zimerman, announced Tuesday that he is suing Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Mayor Pete Buttigieg for defamation, alleging that they called Zimmerman a white supremacist.
Warren's tweet never said the words "white supremacist" or "George Zimmerman," and Buttigieg's tweets similarly don't mention Zimmerman's name.

In 2019, Zimmerman filed a $100 million lawsuit against Martin’s family, newspaper publishers and prosecutors in the case for defamation and alleging a cover-up. Zimmerman allegedly threatened musical superstar Beyoncé over a documentary about the slaying of Martin.
It was a story that prompted many on Twitter to attack Zimmerman as a white supremacist, racist, and other names.
Many users were hoping Zimmerman was dead.
