Published Dec 18, 2017George Zimmerman, the man who shot and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Florida back in 2012, has threatened JAY-Z after alleging the rapper's production team "harassed" his family for a new documentary series surrounding the shooting.
Speaking with The Blast, Zimmerman failed to elaborate on how his family members were harassed by the film crew, telling the publication that "anyone who fucks with my parents will be fed to an alligator."
Zimmerman added, "I know how to handle people who fuck with me, I have since February 2012."
The Blast reports that a production team for the six-part Rest in Power: The Trayvon Martin Story made unannounced visits to the homes of Zimmerman's parents and uncle in Florida. Zimmerman declined to comment on whether or not his family members had agreed to go on camera.
Zimmerman's threats caught the attention of JAY-Z's hip-hop counterpart Snoop Dogg, who weighed in on the controversy in an Instagram post.
"If one hair on jays hair is touched that's when the revolution will b televised," the Doggfather wrote, adding, "Trayvon Martin Gone but not forgotten."
Rest in Power: The Trayvon Martin Story is set to be produced by JAY-Z and executive produced by Michael Gasparro. It is based on Lisa Bloom's 2014 book Suspicion Nation: The Inside Story of the Trayvon Martin Injustice.
Zimmerman was acquitted of second-degree murder and manslaughter in 2013.
