George Zimmerman’s Ex Reacts to Him Posting Naked Pic of Her on Twitter
Zimmerman's Ex Reacts to Him Posting Naked Pic of Her on Twitter
Last week, George Zimmerman posted a picture of his ex-girlfriend naked on Twitter, and now she’s speaking out about being doxxed like that.
Not only did Zimmerman post the picture with her face in it, he included her name and phone number, and claimed she slept with a “dirty Muslim.” His Twitter account was subsequently suspended.
Heather, the woman in question, spoke out to The Daily Dot and said, “I’ve never dreamed that anything like this would ever happen to me. I’m from a very small town. I’ve never been in the public eye by any means.”
She said she was working last Thursday when her phone started “going crazy” with all sorts of people reaching out to her. Heather said there were some positive comments, along with “a lot of really explicit stuff” and “people asking for more nude pictures.”
She opened up about her relationship with Zimmerman, saying that they dated for a few months and things got really rocky. She explained, “And you just think, well the media portrays him as this monster. You’re looking at him, and you’re listening to him, and it’s like, ‘They were so wrong.’ But did I think he would ever do this to me? No.”
After he tweeted the picture, she went to file a restraining order.
As for Zimmerman’s specific accusation, Heather says that was all made up:
She never cheated on him with anyone, Muslim or otherwise, and the gun was his birthday gift to her.
“I think he used the Muslim word as his platform for his racism, because it is such a hot topic right now,” she says, adding that Zimmerman frequently made overtly racist comments while they were together, though she’s not interested in going into detail.
