Zimmerman Gets the Boot

Newser — Neal Colgrass

Bad news for anyone with a thing for George Zimmerman: Two dating apps have given him the boot, CNN reports. Tinder recently removed the killer of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin from its platform, just as Bumble did in December.

Screen grabs from Creating Loafing Tampa Bay show Zimmerman going by "Carter" on Tinder and seeking "carefree, fun!" He describes himself as a self-employed consultant who loves the outdoors but likes to avoid "large crowds." Tinder didn't explain the move but its terms of use do forbid impersonation.

Zimmerman was found not guilty of second-degree murder in killing Martin, a case that triggered fierce national debate. (Zimmerman has been accused of threatening an investigator and says he owes $2.5 million.)
