George Zimmerman had the world in disgust once again last week, when he attempted to auction off the gun he’d used to kill Trayvon Martin with back in 2012. The link was eventually removed from the auction site it was listed on once organizers discovered what it was, but Zimmerman acted fast and listed it on another auction site shortly afterward. Thankfully, a fake bidder drove the price up to $65 million, essentially ruining the auction. (You’re the real MVP!)
Over the weekend, satire site FreddyMag.com posted a fake article saying that Kendrick Lamar had purchased the gun and destroyed it on stage, and it quickly spread like wildfire. Sadly, as dope as that would be (though we wouldn’t have wanted Zimmerman to make a cent off of the sale,) it’s simply not the truth.
