Days after sending an offensive tweet that compared slain teenager Trayvon Martin with De’Marquise Elkins, Robert Zimmerman is now backtracking.
Robert, the brother of Martin’s killer George Zimmerman, went on CNN to talk to Piers Morgan and apologize for the tweet.
Elkins is a 17-year-old who was one of two teens who shot and killed 13-month-old Antonio Santiago while trying to rob the child’s mother.
Robert Zimmerman Jr., the brother of Trayvon Martin‘s killer, George Zimmerman, recently compared the slain teenager to De’Marquise Elkins. 17-year-old Elkins was one of two teens who allegedly shot an 13-month-old Antonio Santiago in his stroller as the toddler and his mother walked home from the post office in Georgia on March 21.
The side-by-side photos of the boys making hand gestures bares the title “A picture speaks a thousand words. Any questions?”
Zimmerman tweeted the comparison to several organizations and individuals including filmmaker Michael Moore, the NAACP, a Breitbart News editor and the NRA.
