Caitlin Cimeno has been fired from job according to reports. Cimeno posted a photo on her Instagram page of two white men portraying Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman for Halloween. One of the males had blackface.

The photos caused outrage online and Cimeno eventually deleted her social media accounts. It was later discovered that Cimeno, William Filene and Greg Cimeno have a history of crime and racism.

Filene, 25, was arrested in July and charged with felony auto theft. He has also been arrested for loitering and failing to register an automobile. Filene is currently on probation for 18 months.

Caitlin Cimeno, who posted the picture on her Instagram account, once berated a black girl on social media who wore a “Black Girls Rock” T-shirt.  Under the photo, Cimeno wrote “First of all, sorry but mommy lied to you and secondly, if I was wearing a short that said ‘white girls rock’ I would be stared at and called a racist cracker.”

Facebook user Stop Blackface on Halloween wrote that a call was made to Caitlin Cimeno’s job to report the incident and her employer revealed that she had been fired.
