Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman Costumes: The Most Offensive Things Ever?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Good news, Julianne Hough: You no longer have the most offensive Halloween costume.

Not by a long, long, long shot.

In a photo that's gone viral, two young men are dressed as Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman for this year's holiday, with one donning a "Neighborhood Watch" shirt and the other wearing a black mask and blood-stained sweatshirt.

Really. We're not making this up:

According to the Smoking Gun, the costumed gentlemen are residents of Florida, where the George Zimmerman murder case took place.

Zimmerman admitted to shooting Martin in early 2012 after trailing the 15-year old through his community and then struggling with Martin.

In a trial that captivated the nation, Zimmerman pleaded not guilty and was exonerated by a jury of his peers in July.

One of the men pictured above reportedly made this image his Facebook profile photo before thinking better of it. So at least the guy isn't a total, complete and utter moron.

I was on zimmerman's side through the trial. But I seriously think this costume again was only for attention. And people shouldn't make fun of tragic events! What is wrong with people?

So its okay to make fun of someone who was murdered? What is this generation coming to? They are all going to hell in a hand basket with smartphones so they can send instagrams of what HELL looks like....This has got to be the most one of many ignorant and racist costumes worn on Halloween....

Wow, nice poll you have there. There's no option for "no" or "you're over-reacting" or "mind your own damn business"

This is just beyond offensive to poor Trayvon Martins family. They have gone through hell losing their son and going through a very public trial only to find that justice is still not served. The last thing they need is for some idiots to poke fun and make light of his death. These losers should go to hell.

Ya it may be funny, but I always try to put myself in others shoes and if this was my family member that had died I would be enraged because it is offensive and highly disrespectful. Same way with the fat suits, anorexic suits, and stuff like that. It is making fun of people who already have issues. Just put yourself in their shoes.

Personally I don't think it's a good costume. A child lost his life and it's not right to mimic those two. But then again people should look up the meaning of HALLOWEEN.
