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:

Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman Halloween Costumes

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.

React now: Do you find these Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman costumes offensive?
