Roseanne Barr
tried to rouse a lynch mob to terrorize George Zimmerman's parents ... because she wanted vigilante justice after the shooting of Trayvon Martin ... according to a new lawsuit.

Robert and Gladys Zimmerman are suing the comedienne ... claiming they feared for their lives after Barr made angry comments about the Zimmermans on Twitter in 2012 ... and even posted their home address online.

The lawsuit claims Barr intentionally tried to cause the Zimmermans emotional distress and great physical harm, by inciting mob violence.

The Zimmermans claim they were forced to flee their home after Barr tweeted their address. They're suing her for $15K in damages ... minimum.

They are old folks and parents are NOT responsible for their ADULT offsprings crimes. Posting address info online? Yep, pay them!!!

Zimmerman is a loser with a capital L, but to post the parents address was not cool.

If all they're suing for is $15k, Rosanne might tweet their address out a few more times....just for fun.

I hope they win, and I also hope the old couple suing spike lee wins when he mistakenly tweeted their address instead of zimmermans. These celebs are p.o.s's

They need to sue for more than $15K...Roseann is a hate filled person that seems to believe people actually care about what she thinks.

That racist POS didn't get that way by accident, he was taught to hate by his parents and I think it's great that people tweeted their address. I hope all the Zimmerman's are terrorized for the rest of their lives. Trayvon Martin deserves some justice and retribution.

The Zimmerman's are maybe jealous that their son is getting all of TMZ's attention? The truth of the matter is, Rosanne Barr Retweeted the address from someone else who had put their address up. They should then be going after the original poster as well. I don't agree with their address being tweeted, and retweeted...etc, but they are going after only one person who is quasi famous (really she's nobody now). But as for George's actions, yes the parents are partially to blame. They enabled him his entire life. IT was his dad being a magistrate that gave him the ability to get off, or reduced charges for a lot of his previous charges.

Indefensible, to put an elderly-couple through
further stress and worry.
Then again, was Roseanne Barr EVER funny?

Roseanne Barr lost her funny a long time ago. She should be sued by these folks, her actions were unconscionable.
