There remain serious issues plaguing the United States while the man who is supposed to be leading the country continues to seemingly be incapable of anything but shouting about nonsense on Twitter.

One of these issues is that of racial injustice, something that the president has made clear he’s not interested in addressing. He referred to African American NFL players peacefully protesting against police brutality as “sons of bitches” in an infamous incident earlier this year.

Now, one of those individuals who, through their grave misdeeds, are partially responsible for turning the nation’s attention to the plight of African Americans is back in the news for making wild threats.

George Zimmerman, of Sanford, Florida, shot and killed African American teenager Trayvon Martin in an act that he has maintained was self defense. Martin posed no threat to Zimmerman that could have warranted him pulling his gun, but Zimmerman and his supporters claim that such isn’t the whole story. Zimmerman was eventually acquitted.

Now, a documentary is set to come out about the whole ordeal, with the famous rapper Shawn ‘Jay Z’ Carter on the production team. Zimmerman is now claiming that the documentary production team, which includes executive producer Michael Gasparro, “harassed” his family members. In response, Zimmerman says that he’s going to “beat Jay-Z” and feed him to an alligator. As he put it, “Anyone who fucks with my parents will be fed to an alligator.”

Zimmerman made his incendiary comments while speaking to The Blast, an online celebrity news source whose website claims it was founded by one of those behind the infamous TMZ.

The Blast states that the incendiary Zimmerman “refused to elaborate” on what he meant when he claimed that his family had been harassed by the team behind the documentary in question.

He didn’t leave his threats at saying he would feed Jay-Z to an alligator, either. (There are numerous populations of alligators in the Sanford, Florida, area.)

He added, while speaking to The Blast:

‘I know how to handle people who fuck with me, I have since February 2012.’

February 2012 is when Zimmerman shot and killed Martin.

The publication adds that he’s not only upset by the documentary production team having allegedly harassed his family members, including his parents and uncle. Zimmerman is also apparently enraged at the documentary production team having allegedly paid his ex-wife to appear in the documentary while not paying his family members. The Blast notes that Zimmerman wouldn’t elaborate on what his family members had or hadn’t actually agreed to do for the documentary versus what his ex-wife had agreed to do.

Notably, it’s The Weinstein Company that is part of the team that originally set out to make the documentary, so The Blast notes that “the fate of the project is unclear” since the exposure of Harvey Weinstein as a serial sexual harasser and assaulter. Posing an additional issue, the documentary is set to be based off a book by attorney Lisa Bloom, who distanced herself from Weinstein following the revelations about his behavior coming out after previously working for him.

Zimmerman has been in the news after run-ins with the law numerous time since initially getting to walk free at the conclusion of his trial after killing Martin.

For instance, Zimmerman was arrested in late 2013 after an alleged fight with his then-girlfriend. The case against him at the time was dropped.

The issue of racial injustice highlighted by Zimmerman’s murder of Martin remains pressing in the United States; although some have sought to discredit it, interests working on behalf of African Americans got together in the “Black Lives Matter” movement after Zimmerman’s acquittal.
