no title

Not all superheroes wear capes!

In fact, when Mike Colter suits up as Marvel's newest vigilante Luke Cage next month, he'll proudly be rocking a hoodie!

The 40-year-old actor stopped by fellow Netflix series Chelsea on Friday where he explained just how the murder of Trayvon Martin — who was killed in his own neighborhood in 2012 because wearing a hoodie made him seem like a "threat" — helped shape his character.

no title

We don't support violence when it comes to solving problems, but when the incident is someone punching George Zimmerman in the face for bragging about shooting Trayvon Martin, we might just look the other way.

As you probably remember George shot and killed Tayvon back in 2012 and got off the hook claiming self-defense! Well on Sunday around 5 p.m. at the Gators Riverside Grille in Sanford, Florida, Zimmerman had a nice little visit from karma as he was punched in the face!

The former neighborhood watchman claims that he was hit by a drunk diner who thought he was someone else. When the 32-year-old called police, he told them:

"This man just punched me in the face. He said he was going to kill me. You need to send three or four cops."

The controversial figure also told them:

If you've been paying attention to national news lately, then you're aware that America is currently suffering from an increase in black deaths at the hands of police.

While victims like Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, Sandra Bland, Eric Garner, Tamir Rice, and Trayvon Martin may never get justice at this rate, Alicia Keys is done with seeing her brothers and sisters gunned down by people who are supposed to be there to help.

George Zimmerman Just Sold The Gun He Used To Kill Trayvon Martin For A Disgustingly Large Amount Of Money…

no title

As if it weren't easy enough to buy guns online… now you can even purchase ones you know were involved in murders.

George Zimmerman is one of the most hated men alive, so it shouldn't come as too much a surprise that he just spent a week trying to sell the gun he used to kill Trayvon Martin online.

While joke accounts and other fake bids luckily closed the auction the first two times he tried it, we're hearing the Florida resident just successfully sold the weapon for a disgustingly large amount of money on Wednesday morning.

Bidding through United Gun Group started at $100,000, and after 120 bids from nine users, George reportedly made somewhere between $120,000 and $138,900 for the firearm!

However, it's not all bad news — the highest bid came in from a user named John Smith, so it's more than likely the tob bidder never actually intended to go through with the sale.

Unfortunately, UGG also issued a statement regarding the numerous fake bids they received, detailing their intent to find legitimate offers, saying:

Azealia Banks Has Company — Twitter Just Suspended George Zimmerman's Account Too! Bye, Trolls!

no title

Looks like George Zimmerman finally went too far for Twitter.

The social network stood their ground when the acquitted murderer announced he was auctioning off the gun he used to kill Trayvon Martin; they suspended his account!

This isn't the first time @TherealGeorgeZ has been taken down; he was also suspended last year for posting nude photos and the phone number of his ex-girlfriend.

Seems to us this should be a three-strikes-and-you're-out situation. PERMANENT BAN!

Is this the company you want to be in, Azealia Banks??

BTW, the pistol auction was also removed, though no explanation was given.
