George Zimmerman was kicked off Twitter for posting nudes of his ex-girlfriend.
George Zimmerman, who is famous for killing Trayvon Martin, was finally kicked off of Twitter on Thursday for doxxing and posting nudes, which he claimed aren't actually nudes of his ex-girlfriend.
In a series of tweets, George Zimmerman accused a woman of sleeping with a "dirty Muslim," and posted two topless photos of her, as well as her email address and phone number. He encouraged his followers to flood her inbox and voicemail.
has a long history of being taken into police custody over domestic violence issues.
Since being found not guilty in the Trayvon Martin shooting, Zimmerman has been taken into police custody multiple times over allegations of domestic violence. In September 2013, his then-wife Shellie called 911 to say that he had punched her father in the nose and threatened her with a gun; that November, he was charged with aggravated assault, battery domestic violence, and criminal mischief after threatening his girlfriend with a shotgun, shoving her, and breaking her belongings; and this past January, he was arrested yet again for throwing a wine bottle at another girlfriend.

Twitter has not commented on why Zimmerman was banned, although the company's strict privacy police, which bans users for sharing the private information of others. The social media platform also bans users for distributing "Revenge Porn".
There is a law against in Florida. But, according to the University of Miami and director of the Cyber Civil Rights Initiative, it doesn't really apply here.
Zimmermans actions probably do not violate Floridas revenge porn law. That law only applies to images that depict the persons nudity or engagement in sexual conduct, she said, noting that the photos Zimmerman posted never met the laws standard for nudity. Its possible that Zimmerman may have researched the law to make sure that he didnt violate it.
