George Zimmerman was spotted signing autographs at a gun show in Florida, said reports this week.
People lined up to meet Zimmerman to get an autograph of him and his dog, TMZ reported.
He appeared at the Orlando Gun Show. However, less than 20 people showed up for the meet-and-greet, reported the New York Daily News.
Zimmerman, 30, said he was at the show to “meet supporters,” adding that “everything’s good.”
Zimmerman’s appearance reportedly drew complaints from a venue owner, who was forced to back out, meaning that the organizers of the gun show had to book a smaller venue.
“They told us they canceled for community pressure,” said Mike Piwowarski, a gun show organizer. “They were getting phone calls and backlash, and didn’t want that kind of person there.”
And Zimmerman has not been found dead after killing himself accidentally or via suicide, but one fake “report” on Tuesday is saying that he’s dead.
The hoax article was published on Cream Bmp Daily, a satire website that publishes only fake news.
“911 first responders found George Zimmerman’s lifeless body at a Florida gun range after responding to an emergency call that he shot himself while loading his weapon,” the article reads, which had thousands of shares on Facebook as of Tuesday. “An Orlando sheriff admits he doesn’t plan to fully investigate for foul play as they don’t want to waste tax money on a death that was going to happen one way or another,” the article continues.
Cream Bmp has a disclaimer saying it’s “satire.”
