Days after sending an offensive tweet that compared slain teenager Trayvon Martin with De’Marquise Elkins, Robert Zimmerman is now backtracking.
Robert, the brother of Martin’s killer George Zimmerman, went on CNN to talk to Piers Morgan and apologize for the tweet. (Watch what he had to say above)
Elkins is a 17-year-old who was one of two teens who shot and killed 13-month-old Antonio Santiago while trying to rob the child’s mother.
In case you did not see the tweet. see the original story here.
