Robert Zimmerman Apologizes For Trayvon Martin Tweets

Via HuffPo reports:

Earlier this week, George Zimmerman’s brother, Robert Zimmerman ruffled feathers with racially charged tweets that compared Trayvon Martin to an alleged killer. But on Wednesday, the neighborhood watch volunteer’s brother sat down with CNN’s Piers Morgan to apologize for the tweets.

Zimmerman originally walked back his comments on Twitter:

However, he didn’t completely recant his tweet during his appearance on the show.

“I don’t think Twitter is the place to make points about what you recall a year ago, because the recollections that I have, or that we have as a family specifically, are very different than what can be portrayed in 140 characters,” he said. “I realize those were controversial and offensive, and I did publicly apologize for them. I don’t think it was the right thing to do that way. I understand it’s controversial and I apologize for it and I’m sincere about that. I shouldn’t have done it this way.”

Robert Zimmerman took to the social network on Sunday, sharing a photo of De’Marquis Elkins, a teen charged with the fatal shooting of a 1-year-old in Georgia, and Trayvon Martin flipping the middle finger.
