Zimmerman Receiving ‘Threats,’ ‘Hateful, Negative Responses’ After Releasing Video


George Zimmerman has received threats and “a huge amount of horrible, hateful negative responses” after his first public video statement on the Michael Brown shooting death, his attorney tells  MRCTV.

Zimmerman attorney Howard Iken, of the Florida law firm Ayo and Iken, tells MRCTV that Zimmerman’s online video has received overwhelming response – but hateful, vulgar, and even threatening, comments have outnumbered supportive ones by a ten-to-one  margin:

“We’ve gotten a huge amount, probably by a magnitude of ten times more, and I’ll have a reason for this, we’ve gotten a huge amount of horrible, hateful negative responses, cuss-words, people actually – I’ll go ahead and say it, we had one person – which was an amusing use of her faith – praying we go out of business, which I felt was an interesting viewpoint. “We’ve had some threats, we’ve had inappropriate  language.”

Iken says that the negative response has been so threatening, in fact, that Zimmerman’s supporters have been afraid to speak out on his  behalf.
