FLORIDA: George Zimmerman Kicked Off Dating Apps

The New York Daily News reports:

George Zimmerman’s quest for love on Tinder has gone up in flames. The 35-year-old Florida man, who was acquitted in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin more than six years ago, was recently trolling for dates on the popular app until he got the boot after creating a phony profile with a fake name.

Screengrabs of the account obtained by Creative Loafing Tampa revealed that Zimmerman had been going by the alias “Carter,” describing himself as a self-employed consultant and Liberty University graduate.

“I’m looking for carefree, fun! I love the outdoors, fishing camping and hiking,” Zimmerman’s bio read. “I love adventure not into huge crowds. I’m also down for a quiet night with Longhorn take out.”

The Washington Post reports:

Zimmerman’s unlucky love streak predates his recent ban from Tinder. He was also removed from social networking platform Bumble twice in recent months.

“George Zimmerman was blocked and banned in December 2018 when we first discovered his profile and we have blocked and banned him again after we were informed by our users that he had created a new unverified profile,” a Bumble spokesman said in a statement, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

Zimmerman last appeared on JMG in 2018 when he was given a year’s probation in an “aggressive stalking” case. Zimmerman did not attend Liberty University.
