Being backed by a credible organization with good public relations is often an excellent way for a celebrity to better his or her own reputation with the masses. But the widely-hated Ku Klux Klan is not one of those organizations. George Zimmerman received support from the KKK, who defended him after the public outrage against Zimmerman soared to new heights after he re-tweeted photos of Trayvon Martin’s corpse earlier this week, but the Klan’s seal of approval will likely do more harm than good to George’s public profile.
If you’re not familiar with the history of George Zimmerman, look it up on the internet. You should have no problem finding tons of information about his racist attitudes and public statements, as the man’s life has gone somewhat viral since his allegedly race-fueled shooting of Trayvon Martin in 2012 and his court case, in which he was found innocent, the next year.
