George Zimmerman is back in the headlines for his antics, this time for selling artwork with an ironic message. The former neighborhood watchman and teen killer is selling a painting on eBay this week that shows a blue American flag with a portion of the Pledge of Allegiance inscribed on it.
“One nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all,” reads the painting.
The “art” had a starting bid of $50, and as of today, Dec. 17, 2013, the bidding has reached nearly $100,000; $99, 966.00 to be exact.
George Zimmerman’s brother, Robert, confirmed that the painting indeed belongs to the killer of Trayvon Martin.
“First hand painted artwork by me, George Zimmerman,” he captioned a picture of the painting.
“Everyone has been asking what I have been doing with myself. I found a creative, way to express myself, my emotions and the symbols that represent my experiences. My artwork allows me to reflect, providing a therapeutic outlet and allows me to remain indoors 🙂 I hope you enjoy owning this piece as much as I enjoyed creating it. Your friend, George Zimmerman,” he added.
A “fan” of Zimmerman has since sung his praises in eBay’s comment section and got a response from the gunslinger-turned-artist.
“Just wanted to tell you we all love you and stand behind you. You have so many people on your side I hope you know that!” wrote the out of touch supporter.
“Thank you so much for the words of kindness and support. I do know how many great Americans are still here, I run into at least 3-5 a day that go out of their way to tell me the same. Your Friend, GZ @therealGeorgeZ,” he responded.
