Man says Zimmerman mocked his Middle Eastern heritage
Looks like George "Dat Niggy" Zimmerman was quite the terror at work.
The prosecution in the Trayvon Martin case has released a 15-minute audio recording of a witness who used to be a co-worker of Zimmerman. He says that Zimmerman constantly harassed and insulted him, mocking his Middle Eastern origins.
The man, who remains unnamed, says that Zimmerman bullied him calling him a "fucking moron" among other things. He says that Zimmerman even created a little character named “Achmed the terrorist" to mock him with.
The former co-worker says that "Achmed" would talk about things like “bombing,” “I’ll kill your family” and other “jokes” about “Middle Eastern stuff.”
The harassment stopped when Zimmerman was fired months later. According to the witness, "he was fired for calling the HR hotline so many times…he would complain about each and every manager and employee.” Sounds similar to reports that he incessantly called Sanford Police every time he saw a black male walking around in his neighborhood.
