George Zimmerman wants to box Kanye West?

George Zimmerman and Kanye West

I’ve been purposefully avoiding talking about George Zimmerman after he was found not guilty of shooting and killing Trayvon Martin. You see, Zimmerman is basically trying to position himself as some sort of nihilistic celebrity for racists, because that’s how fame works now. Anyway, I’ve been trying not to indulge him. Anyway, Zimmerman’s latest venture is celebrity boxing, the final refuge for terrible g-list famewhores, and he really wants to fight Kanye West because — well, I’ll let the blockquote from TMZ explain this …

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. We’re told George’s beef with Kanye is not just that he attacks paparazzi … but the innocents as well — like the 18-year-old who allegedly called Kim an “N***** lover.”

NO. NO. JUST NO. George Zimmerman, the guy who shot an unarmed kid, is going after Kanye because he attacks “defenseless people”? F*CK. OFF. Oh, that’s just so terrible on so many levels. It’s like he sat down one day and thought “Hmmm, how can I represent everything that’s wrong with western civilization — the racism, the hypocrisy, the celebrity worship, the false sense of entitlement —  in one fell swoop? Wait, I think I got it!”
