George Zimmerman’s Parents Sue Roseanne Barr for Tweeting Their Address
George Zimmerman’s parents sued Roseanne Barr for tweeting their address and forcing them to go into hiding.
Barr said she “thought it was good to let ppl know that one can hide anymore.”
George Zimmerman’s parents are suing Roseanne Barr for tweeting their home address, which they say forced them to go into hiding for years.
Robert and Gladys Zimmerman have filed a lawsuit against Barr, accusing the comedian and actress of posting “an open and obvious call for vigilante justice,” which she intended “to cause a lynch mob to descend” on their Lake Mary, Florida, home.
“It was foreseeable that the tweets would cause Robert and Gladys Zimmerman to have to flee their house in the middle of the night and never to be able to return, have to face a descent of media and others who would seek to do harm to Robert and Gladys Zimmerman and to their home, and have to live in seclusion to protect their personal and emotional well being,” the civil complaint said.
The Zimmermans accuse Barr of “intentional infliction of emotional distress” and “invasion of privacy” with the message to her 110,000 Twitter followers on March 29, 2012.
