George Zimmerman, who was acquitted of second-degree murder and manslaughter charges in the 2012 Trayvon Martin case, sent a series of threatening text messages to Beyoncé and Jay-Z in December 2017.

The rapper co-executive produced a new docuseries, Rest In Power: The Trayvon Martin Story, based on the unarmed 17-year-old African-American who Zimmerman shot and killed in a Sanford, Florida, gated community in February 2012.



While the series was in production, Zimmerman began sending crude text messages after Dennis Warren, a private investigator looking for participants for the documentary, contacted him and other family members to obtain facts and additional information for the series.

In screenshots provided by The Blast, Zimmerman sent texts saying:

"And I'm bringing hell with me."
"Oh yea and tell Jay-Z he's a bitch and his wife is a broke whore."

Zimmerman also indirectly threatened the couple, adding, that he'll feed them to a "13-foot gator" if he ever saw them in person.

The texts confirmed what people have suspected about Zimmerman all along.





According to the Orlando Sentinel, Warren was hired by Cinemart Productions to find participants for the docuseries. He visited Zimmerman's parents and uncle.

The visit allegedly prompted Zimmerman to threaten Jay-Z.

"What I said is I would beat him as if I was Solange, and he would find himself coming out of the south side of a gator if he comes to Florida and bothers my family."

Warren also received a barrage of harassment and threats after he visited the homes of Zimmerman's family members. The investigator charged Zimmerman with misdemeanor stalking.

The Florida State Attorney's Office issued a summons stating that Zimmerman "did willfully, maliciously, and repeatedly follow, harass, or cyberstalk" Warren in December 2017.

Zimmerman reportedly called Warren "55 times, left 36 voicemails, texted him 67 times and sent 27 email … over 9 days," according to the Blast.

Zimmerman pleaded not guilty to the charges of stalking Warren.

People were astonished that Zimmerman isn't already behind bars.


In 2017, Zimmerman commented, "I know how to handle people who fuck with me, I have since February 2012."

His texts will be featured as part of the finale in the six-part series.

TRIGGER WARNING: This article contains sensitive content about depression and mental health.

As the stigma around mental health lessens (however slowly), people are more forthcoming about the problems they are facing. One of the most common mental health issues is depression.

Depression can affect many different types of people. Factors such as gender, race, nationality, and even age have no bearing on whether someone suffers from depression or not.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), globally, "...an estimated 3.8% of the population affected, including 5.0% among adults and 5.7% among adults older than 60 years..."

Depression displays in certain patterns, such as mood changes, physical difficulties, and social isolation. However, depression manifests differently in different people and feels different to different people.

Reddit users divulged what depression felt like to them when Redditor iodineseaspray asked:

"What does depression feel like to you?"
