George Zimmerman Gets Banned From Dating App For Users' Safety

George Zimmerman was kicked off the popular dating app Tinder when it was discovered he was using an alias.

Sanford, FL - George Zimmerman, the man acquitted in the 2012 shooting death of Trayvon Martin, was kicked off the popular dating app Tinder last week.

Zimmerman had his profile removed after Tinder discovered he was using it with a fake name, according to The Hill.

A Tinder spokesman confirmed his profile was taken down.

“At Tinder, we take our users’ safety very seriously and our team has removed this profile from our platform,” the spokesman told the Washington Post. “We utilize a network of industry-leading automated and manual moderation and review tools, systems and processes — and spend millions of dollars annually to prevent, monitor and remove bad actors who have violated our Community terms and guidelines.”

Zimmerman, 35, was using the fake name “Carter” on the app and said he was a self-employed consultant and Liberty University graduate who wanted “carefree fun.”

Zimmerman’s profile was found by Tampa’s Creative Loafing on April 17. His profile said he enjoys hiking, fishing, “quite nights” and takeout food from Longhorn Steakhouse.

Zimmerman was also removed from the dating app Bumble in December, according to The Hill.

“George Zimmerman was blocked and banned in December 2018 when we first discovered his profile and we have blocked and banned him again after we were informed by our users that he had created a new unverified profile,” a Bumble spokesman told the Orlando Sentinel.

Zimmerman was a neighborhood watch leader who fatally shot Trayvon Martin on Feb. 26, 2012. He was acquitted of murder charges in a 2013 trial.

He’s had a few brush-ups with the law since the trial. In 2015, he was arrested for throwing a wine bottle at his girlfriend but she decided not to press charges, according to The Hill.

Zimmerman was given 12 months probation last November on a misdemeanor stalking charge after he was accused of threatening to feed a private investigator to an alligator.

When police investigated the stalking charge, Zimmerman called Seminole County Sheriff's Office Sergeant Shannon Seiple a string of vulgarities, according to the Miami Herald.

The left wing narrative ,that all gun owners are dangerous has infiltrated many aspects of society. The Democrat party have made it clear on numerous occasions that they intend to abolish the second amendment as soon as is possible.The shooting and politically motivated prosecution of Zimmerman changed his life forever.it cost him his marriage and home,forever branding him as a white Hispanic racist who kills black kids. The verdict evidence and facts we're buried under an as avalanche of lies,and Lynch mob mentality.As a former police officer I was appalled at the rush to get conviction on social media and blacken his name and that of the NRA and investigating officers, The first amendment should never be used as a tool to spread lies that endanger people's lives. The Supreme Court needs to make this clear.

People use alias names ALL THE TIME!! Especially Democrat Liberals!! This is All because he was FALSELY Accused, he is marred for life. Media, including social media has a huge stronghold on what we think and do. I hope George can find peace in life after they trashed him. There are Many Police Officers and even just everyday people that have been marred and hurt because of WRONGLY ACCUSING them, making Mountains out of Mole Hills. My heart and prayers go out to these people. Its Wrong and should not be happening in AMERICA!! Proves our Constitution is being trampled on. HUGELY!! No one should have to PROVE their innocence. But it sure seems like the law is backwards, and all are guilty till proven innocent, rather than innocent till proven guilty.

Well he couldn’t use his real name! Why do they feel he’s inherently dangerous? He was found not guilty, in an Obama era. I’d say he’s not guilty!

If they’re so concerned with safety, no Democratic politician should be allowed on social media, period.

Wow kicked off of tinder...... try Christian mingle, they’ll forgive you. I neither support nor disapprove of George, but if tinder is doing this, then they should also ban anyone who’s been convicted of domestic violence also. That sounds fair. But then again, what does fair have to do with society now a days, especially when Theres Piece if shit Kim Foxx picking and choosing how she wants to prosecute,

I think he is just having to fight for everything since the shooting and I don't think it's right. And I certainly don't approve of his being removed from Social media sites. It was proven in a court of law that he was innocent. They don't get to convict him on their own feelings. The law is the law. Why SHOULDNT he be allowed to date? And I don't blame him for using an alias either. You people are not the final judge and jury, God is!

I'm surprised people let him walk around alive, let alone join a dating app.
