Lil Boosie says he didn’t punch George Zimmerman at a Florida Walmart

Miami-based rapper Lil Boosie took to social media yesterday to clarify that he did not in fact beat up resident turd, and acquitted child killer George Zimmerman in a Florida Walmart parking lot.

"Hey, service announcement from Boosie. I never seen George [Zimmerman] in my life, but on TV," said Boosie in an Instagram post. "This is a lie. Leave me alone. I never seen George Zimmerman in my life. George don't know me. Talking 'bout I did something to him in Walmart. That is a lie."

False reports were circulating earlier this week that the rapper had knocked Zimmerman “‘out cold,’ which then resulted in him being rushed to the hospital after he began suffering a seizure.”

While this story is completely untrue, Zimmerman has reportedly been in quite a few altercations since he was acquitted of second-degree murder of unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin back in 2012.

Zimmerman was once arrested for felony aggravated assault for allegedly pointing a shotgun at his girlfriend's face, and was also arrested for domestic assault after reportedly throwing a bottle of wine at a different girlfriend. Both of these charges were dropped.

Zimmerman was allegedly punched in the face after bragging about killing Martin at Gator's Riverside Grille in Sanford in August of 2016, and a few months later was reportedly tossed from the Corona Cigar Company in Sanford after calling the manager a "ni**er lover," among other things.

Also, in 2018 he was charged with misdemeanor stalking after threatening to beat up a filmmaker working on Jay Z’s Trayvon Martin documentary.

However, the most famous incident was when Zimmerman was involved in a road rage incident in 2016, which resulted in a guy trying to shoot him.

Apparently things have not been going well for Zimmerman, as of late. When he's not getting kicked off dating apps for making fake aliases, Zimmerman is suing nearly everyone from his 2012 criminal trial, including Martin's parents, their attorney, the prosecutors, the state of Florida, and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement for $100 million. 

Boosie, on the other hand, has his own brand of ramen noodles coming out this week, which will coincidently be sold in Walmarts.
