Watch This: Zimmerman on 'Hannity'

He writes off the events the night Trayvon Martin was killed as "God's plan." The parents of the slain teenager disagree.

Fox News

On Wednesday night, Fox News aired an exclusive Sean Hannity interview with George Zimmerman, the Florida man who fatally shot unarmed teen Trayvon Martin and is charged with second-degree murder in his death, Mediaite reports. In it, Zimmerman said he was "sorry" but the events that transpired that night were "God's plan."

Not surprisingly, Trayvon's parents were unmoved by the much-delayed public apology. His mother told host Gretchen Carlson, "I don't understand what he was thinking [when he said] it was God's plan that he murdered our child. And I really don't understand what god he worships because it is not the same God I worship."
