George Zimmerman

Flees Miami After Death Threat

2/18/2014 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0217-george-zimmerman-01George Zimmerman fled Miami after someone threatened there was a huge bounty on his head.

Zimmerman taped an interview last Tuesday with Univision and Fusion, and then took his girlfriend, her kid and his brother to the beach.  While they were catching some rays, people noticed him, started harassing him, and then someone shouted out George had a $10,000 bounty on his head.

We're told it freaked him out and they all retreated to the hotel, but the crowd followed them.

Security swept their room to make sure no one tampered with their stuff and then stood guard throughout the day and night.  We're told Zimmerman did his CNN interview early the next morning and then beat it ... literally fleeing Miami.

Fact is ... the bounty threat seems somewhat real.  There's a Black Panthers video online in which one of the leaders puts a $1 MILLION bounty on Zimmerman's head.

WHAT A JOKE......If it would have been a white kid no one would have cared. Stop crying and saying everything is racism, otherwise STFU and go back to Africa!

Truth    

It's HILARIOUS to see the Obama crowd preach about how wrong violence is, then wish every kind of death on Zimmerman. You are truly the worst of the worst in this country. Enjoy sitting in the back of the bus becasue you are never leaving there.

Lmao Zimmerman's a mexican. Unfortunately these "black panthers" were unable to complete high school to learn of American history and proper english. Mexican kills a black and it's white peoples fault? This is why they made better servants than educated citizens.

This video was created right before GZ turned himself in. Very old video and TMZ has taken it out of context.

Attention to all the race card black people and white ignorant people, shut up already, no one knows what really happened that night accept GOD, George and Martin. If this was racial motivated , God will handle it! I hope my daughter lives in a world that's "society label " free and sees evil as evil and not as a single color..

Mikhail Muhammad is a joke and is fueling racism. He lives in a very poor area so i doubt he could afford a 10 dollar bounty. Seach for the news story where he best his wife and held her against her will. His address is in that news article if anyone wanted to know for any reason.
