George Zimmerman’s Ex Feels ‘Violated’ After Revenge Porn Tweets

After George Zimmerman reportedly posted naked images of her without her permission, his former girlfriend has spoken out, revealing her feelings after dating the man who killed Trayvon Martin. New York Daily News reports that Heather, who isn’t sharing her last name, has provided comments after the incident went viral this week.

The Kentucky woman had only been dating Zimmerman for a few months when their relationship took an apparent bad turn. According to Heather, Thursday’s social media stunt was his way of getting revenge, because she had tried to break up with him. She also claimed that this is not the first time that she’s tried to break things off with the Florida man. Stopping short of calling George Zimmerman abusive, she explained what it was like the other times she has tried to end their relationship.

“It’s like different stages. At first, it’s like begging and pleading and then crying and then anger and just horrible, horrible things-like I’m dead to him, and vulgar, vulgar names. It sucks. I have left in the past, and he calls and texts every day until I’m sucked back in.”

On Thursday of this past week, Zimmerman posted topless photos of Heather, claiming that she had cheated on him with “a dirty Muslim.” He also tweeted her private details, including her phone number, so his followers could call and harass her. After he had reportedly posted the topless photos of his ex-girlfriend, he sent out another tweet, claiming that she had stolen money and guns from him as well.

Not long after the inflammatory tweets, Twitter suspended his account, rendering him unable to continue the behavior any further. He had allegedly violated their strict policies against revenge porn and harassment. Since the incident took place, social media has been lit up with discussion about whether or not George Zimmerman has finally committed a crime that could land him behind bars.

The Chicago Tribune reports that authorities in Seminole County, Florida are now investigating the incident. That’s because Heather has filed a report against Zimmerman, accusing him of harassment. She claims that not only had he sent her harassing messages, but he had sent “inappropriate and harassing” messages to her 10-year-old son. According to the police report, George Zimmerman called her “inappropriate names,” and also told her 10-year-old son that his biological father “doesn’t love him.”

As of Saturday night, no charges have been filed against the man. Furthermore, authorities have claimed that the topless images of Heather don’t necessarily break any laws — even though Florida Governor Rick Scott signed legislation last year that makes it a crime to post revenge porn online. The Sexual Cyberharassment Bill makes it illegal to post nude pictures with identifying information of the victim on the internet without the consent of the person, or persons, depicted in the images or videos. This criminal act, in the state of Florida, is a misdemeanor that carries a maximum sentence of one year in jail. However, repeat offenses would be considered felonies under this new legislation.

Knowing that Rick Scott signed this legislation into action last year, why wouldn’t authorities in Seminole County consider Zimmerman’s recent actions a crime?
