Zimmerman vs DMX Fight Called Off! [Details]
Thank Goodness someone came to their senses with this one.
The Celebrity Boxing match between former rap superstar DMX and acquitted Murderer George Zimmerman was called off yesterday after reports of threats being made toward the promoter of the fight Damon Feldman.
According to Reuters.com Feldman released this tweet yesterday:
“Done with George Zimmerman if you had a major payday sitting in front of you, I know no one else would walk away like I did ***Next!!,”
This fight has been under heavy scrutiny since it was announced about a month ago. Especially from Civil Rights leader Al Sharpton who made the “Cancel George Zimmerman ‘Celebrity’ Boxing Match” Facebook page that generated 315,000 “likes”.
This is definitely the right call, a man who killed a 17 year old boy should not be glorified and certainly should be classified as a celebrity.
In terms of DMX he has way to many personal problems to handle to be involved in something like this.
