George Zimmerman's Parents Suing Roseanne Barr

 
George Zimmerman's Parents Suing Roseanne Barr
Posted Wednesday, March 12th 2014 @ 6pm  by KFBK News

Roseanne Barr is at the center of a lawsuit filed by the parents of the man who killed Florida teenager Trayvon Martin. 

Robert and Gladys Zimmerman filed legal action on Monday, alleging that the TV star tried to "incite a lynch mob to descend" on their Florida home before their son George was arrested for Martin's death. 

Barr revealed the location of the couple's home to her thousands of followers on Twitter, even though the neighborhood watch volunteer was not living with his parents at the time. 

According to "The Orlando Sentinel," the Zimmermans say in their lawsuit that Barr "intentionally inflicted emotional distress" as they were forced to leave their Lake Mary home in the middle of the night two years ago for fear that they would become victims of "vigilante justice." They're seeking unspecified damages. 

A jury controversially acquitted George Zimmerman last July for Martin's 2012 death.
