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.

George Zimmerman In retrospect, the woman told FBI agents, Zimmerman's relationship with his family, and his mother in particular, was the source of a lot of his torment.

At family gatherings, she said, much of the conversation centered around "financial status and material things." Zimmerman's mother would often talk about "marrying into white families in order to improve one's status." But the woman said Zimmerman never got along with his mother and that the women in his family "exercised a lot of control over" him.

At one point, the woman told investigators, after she'd gotten into a particularly heated argument with his mother, Zimmerman retaliated by turning off the electricity to his mother's house. "[Zimmerman] locked the electrical box and departed leaving his mother without electricity,"


According to court do***ents, the Zimmermans purchased the home in question in 2001, and this is the same home where George resided until 2006. His name remained on the title until 2008.the Twin Lakes home was in the process of foreclosure, George zimmerman & his wife were trying to live off of student loans

George Zimmerman has amounted to nothing of significance and done absolutely nothing with his life and likes to make himself feel better by beating womens, stalking your ex, animal abuse, road rage, bullying people co worker /neighbors, drunk in public, hitting a under cover cop, child sexual molestation he own cousin, and pulling gun on people like a ups man and he did all this before he murder in cold blood tyravon martin. george zimmerman is a thug. I don't have any sympathy for you, Maybe because you are homeless now there is probably a neighborhood watch. Looking for homeless guys wandering in the neighborhood .Hey george what are you afraid of ? Do you think some unbalanced fool on meds who just had a fight with his wife trained in MMA/boxing with a gun will come after you shoot, and claim self defense? What kind of foolish jury would believe that chit. Someone who hunts down another with a gun and say it's self defense when the other is unarmed . Who cares about george you snuffed out the life of a unarmed teenager. Hey George Zimmerman You can't kill without consequence? you failure as a man your are complete loser.It’s becoming painfully clear that the jurors in George Zimmerman’s murder trial acquitted a killer who had a history of violence, disruption

Trayvons parents should sue them for giving birth to that insufferable monster that ultimately murdered their child.

I hope him and his entire family suffer the worst fate possible. The BALLS these people have. The BALLS. They're testing the public and one of these days someone will pass that test.

I hope they win millions. What do they have to do with what their son did? Maybe everyone should lynch Rosanne instead.

First, I thought they deserve privacy, but F**K em. Maybe death threats will remind them what type of son they "raised", and how their baby boy became a coward with a gun.

Good for them! They should sue for more than that. No matter what happened that tragic night, these people had nothing to do with it. To expose their whereabouts during the aftermath was irresponsible. That she did it intending to have harm inflicted was criminal.

All of you morons wanting to give Zimmerman's parents a pass card are hypercritical. People are a products of parenting (I know this is deep sh!t for you guys to process). Zimmerman's dad is a judge and should at least know the fundamentals of the United States constitution. Namely, freedom of speech. That his father would even have the balls to file a suit that smacks against the constitution speaks volumes of his disdain for law and the power of position in perverting the law-to accommodate those in position or wealth-based on his personal daily misconducts in sentencing as a judge. You can bullsh!t the stupid American public but you can't lie to God.

I think George Z is a worthless, murdering piece of garbage who should be in prison. However, parents aren't responsible for the actions of their adult children. And Ms. Barr's actions did put their safety at risk. Freedom of speech doesn't grant the right to incite violence, which she was clearly trying to do. Her actions were dangerous and assinine.
