George Zimmerman Fight

Cancelled

Promoter Gets Cold Feet

breaking news

0208-george-zimmerman-dmx-tmzGeorge Zimmerman will not be going toe-to-toe with DMX in a celebrity boxing event ... and the promoter says it's because his conscience finally kicked in.

The promoter for the event took to Twitter Saturday afternoon to officially cancel the event ... and said he finally realized there's "more to life then money."


The promoter adds, "Just looked at my son and daughter today wow I'm so lucky those people must be in so much pain ... all you people are right."

Unclear exactly what he meant by "those people" ... but probably a poor choice of words.

Those people probably means the Martin family. You people probably means the thousands who were against the fight in the first place.

May have had something to do with the Change.org petition. It advocated a boycott of any sponsors.

George Zimmerman must be in a living hell; why should we do the honors by punishing him? Goodbye George. Ask God's forgiveness. Stop asking us to be ur god and judge.

The amount of security you'd need for the colored crowd would be cost prohibitive, by the time you shackle the all up to make them behave you'd be deeper in the hole than Trayvon Martin...

First off to even come up with this idea and consider Zimmerman as an "celebrity" is questionable so I feel that the term "those people" could be alittle racial dig. He could have said "looking at my children my heart goes out to the family"

Just on CNN, George is being deported back to Mexico . Wow! Perfect timing because he was afraid of DMX anyway . Oh well, pack your suitcase and go home.
