Because George Zimmerman won't just go away, he's now criticizing Trayvon Martin's parents, the Black Lives Matter movement and Hillary Clinton.


In a recent interview with the Daily Beast, Zimmerman claims that he, not Trayvon, is the real victim and questioned Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin's parenting skills.

"They didn't raise their son right. He attacked a complete stranger and attempted to kill him," Zimmerman said.

"Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin did everything they could to capitalize on her son's death," he said. "She was never a mother figure to him. Tracy Martin couldn't have cared less about their son. He treated him like a dog without a leash."

Zimmerman recently made news after he attempted to sell the gun he used to kill Trayvon on Feb. 26, 2012.

Zimmerman said that he's been forced to sell the gun in an attempt to make money, and he blamed Fulton and Martin for forcing him into a life of infamy that doesn't allow him to work a regular job.

"If I have to live my life and if I have to go about my business as a normal person, then I would do that. However, I'm not afforded that luxury anymore," he said. "You guys. The media. The masses. The Fulton-Martin family. They took that from me."


The gun, which has been listed three different times on two different gun-auction sites, is now up for sale with a starting bid of $100,000. Zimmerman said that some of the proceeds from the gun's sale will go to fight against the Black Lives Matter movement, which Zimmerman referred to as a "fraudulent" and "violent campaign."

"I recognize the purchaser's ownership and right to do with the firearm as they wish," Zimmerman wrote in his auction posting. "The purchaser is guaranteed validity and authenticity of the firearm. A portion of the proceeds will be used to: fight BLM violence against Law Enforcement officers, ensure the demise of Angela Corey's persecution [sic] career and Hillary Clinton's anti-firearm rhetoric."


And, in case you were wondering who Zimmerman is voting for in the upcoming presidential election, hint: It isn't Clinton.

"It has nothing to do with her presidential campaign," Zimmerman told the Daily Beast. "It's about her as an individual. It doesn't matter if she was running for president or if she was running her own used car lot, which I think she's still unqualified for."


He added that he isn't fully sold on Donald Trump, either.

"I would have to do a lot of homework before I decide to endorse him," Zimmerman told the Daily Beast. He added that he "will do whatever it takes to dispel [Clinton's] lies and disrupt the Black Lives Matter movement."
