George Zimmerman and Petition to have Celebrity Boxing Match Cancelled

By  |  1 Comment

Since news broke that a Celebrity Boxing Match between George Zimmerman and DMX was set for March 15, social media went ablaze with a myriad of emotions. Some who felt Zimmerman got away with murder were excited about the prospect of seeing the aging New York rapper beat down the 30-year-old Florida man. Though some were repulsed by the thought that anyone would want to profit from the death of Trayvon Martin, the 17-year-old boy Zimmerman shot dead in his Sanford, Fla., neighborhood back in February of 2012.

But Janet Dickerson didn’t just react emotionally; she got organized. Five days ago when she caught word that Damon Feldman was looking for an opponent to fight the wanna-be cop, she started a change.org petition to stop the fight from happening. “I thought it was a complete demonstration of disrespect to Trayvon’s parents, to Trayvon himself and to the many people who feel impacted by this injustice,” Dickerson reortedly stated. “It became clear that people were really outraged by this, so I thought that it would certainly be worthwhile to put up this petition.”

Folks on Twitter are letting Feldman have it and he’s taken to the defensive over his decision to schedule the match:A lot of jealous people out there if your not paying my bills and child support mind your own business, Feldman stated on twitter. Before Feldman announced on TMZ last night that he picked DMX as Zimmerman’s opponent, the petition only had 114 signatures. Now, it has more than 15,000 towards its goal of 100,000. Though many people have tweeted their grievances at Feldman, Dickerson has not directly tweeted him because she doesn’t want to draw any attention to herself.

Some have even asked why DMX would agree to the fight, but his agent, Domenick Nati, said no final agreement has been made. “The boxing match between George Zimmerman and DMX is not officially confirmed,” Nati said. “DMX has promised to “beat his ass”, but no contract or paperwork has been signed or agreed to yet. DMX will release an official statement if and when an agreement is made.”

It’s a sad in America when we deem a murderer a celebrity. There is no respect shown for Trayvon Martin and his family. First he gets away with murder, now he’s a celebrity and he is boxing in a celebrity boxing match. How cruel is that for the Martin family. Mr. Feldman doesn’t have any sympathy or conscience for the Martin family. If this boxing match continues, I hope DMX beats him into the ground. Although DMX is a lot older, a little scrawny and hasn’t been out that long, I pray his hatred for George Zimmerman will prevail. The media has made this man a celebrity with all of the attention he is receiving. He is not a celebrity, he is a murderer.
