Once again, white people have decided that it would be great fun to revictimize slain teen Trayvon Martin, this time in the form of racist Halloween costumes, complete with Blackface and a matching George Zimmerman pretending to hold a gun.
Greg Cimeno posted a picture of himself dressed as George Zimmerman, with his friend, William Filene dressed in Blackface wearing a hoodie with a bloody bullet hole in the center of the chest.
George Zimmerman was found not guilty of murder after fatally shooting 17-year-old Trayvon Martin through the heart on February 26, 2012.
The girl in the disturbing images, Caitlin Cimeno, also posted the horrifically racist and insensitive picture and described it as “just for fun.”
Her SOCIAL MEDIA profiles have since been made private.
Cimeno, who defended his costume as “hilarious” took to Facebook in anticipation on October 25, posting that he was making the “best Halloween costume of the year.”
The images quickly went viral.

Notice the blackface Halloween costume is of a DEAD Trayvon Martin. Not a living breathing human being but dead like lynchings of the past.

I just saw a Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman Halloween costume. That is literally beyond disgusting. People make me so sick.

Dressing as Trayvon Martin being shot is not funny and not acceptable as a Halloween costume.

I can’t believe that Trayvon Martin Halloween costume. How ignorant and disrespectful. How could a person even do that?! That’s bothered me

As previously reported, white teenagers also thought it would be “hilarious” to reenact Trayvon Martin lying dead with an Arizona Iced Tea and a pack of Skittles laying next to him. The terrible meme was a version of planking, and quickly gained popularity among sick White teens, who just like the teens above, had too much time and not enough character.
