Last week, George Zimmerman announced that he’d compete in a celebrity boxing event against whatever opponent will pony up the cash for an unnamed charity that George will make a minimal, legally-required 10% donation to so all of this doesn’t look like the scam it really is. Since then, The Game has already thrown his hat in the ring, but apparently George Zimmerman is holding out for a bigger (gay) fish. TMZ reports:
George Zimmerman wants to beat up Kanye West … ironically because the rapper has a history of attacking “defenseless people.”
Promoters for Zimmerman’s upcoming celeb boxing match tell us he badly wants to step in the ring with Yeezus. The promoters are deliciously Machiavellian — knowing for many it will become a choice between 2 evils … thus becoming a must-see spectacle.
To these shitbags’ credit, I’m genuinely torn. On the one hand, fuck George Zimmerman and the fact that he’s become a folk hero to second amendment fetishists who got off on seeing a man experience the American dream of gunning down a black person and walking away scot-free. Not to mention, he’s already referring to the murder of Trayvon Martin as “the incident,” and is now bestowing himself the mantle of protector of the defenseless which is such rich, delicious irony, Gwyneth Paltrow would ladle it into her mouth with an ocelot bone tasting spoon if she could. But then on the other hand, Kanye West getting shot. It’s like choosing which of your kids to kill then get away with it because of stand your ground. They’re both so annoying and interrupt your shows.
