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.

For all those saying it's his parents' fault; my mind jumps to that horrible cannibal-murderer, Jeffrey Dahmer. his parents were sweet, and had NO clue their son would turn out to be so horrible. Extreme case, I know, but why blame the parents?

I think it's perfectly fine to express ones disgust over an injustice, wether people agree or disagree. It's not cool to post an address online inciting violence or even egg/rock throwing at a parents, or anyone's home. Even if people showed up just to yell outside & hold up signs, still not cool. Though peaceful protest is the best way to go. Just think of all these news stories where folks surround someone's home. I don't know what her attentions were but it wasn't so people could go over there & hug them. More acts of violence is not how you solve things. Just look at all those death threats that elderly couple got when Spike Lee did that.

Truth    

If Trayvon Martin had not ATTACKED George Zimmerman (AS PROVEN IN COURT), Martin would still be alive today. And probably in trouble for something else. Only someone as stupid as an Obama voter sees anything else.

Roseanne Barr and other bleeding heart Whites need to jump off the Black Train. These Whites only come out after the fact. Have any of you Blacks every seen one of these Whites in your community.? No because they would look silly to All of Sudden care . These wealthy Whites don't want Blacks in their community just like Wealthy Blacks
