George Zimmerman threatens Beyoncé over Trayon Martin documentary…

According to The Blast reports, George Zimmerman allegedly made menacing threats aimed at both Beyoncé and Jay-Z during the filming of “Rest in Power: The Trayvon Martin Story,” the docuseries the rapper co-executive produced.

In a series of text messages obtained The Blast, Zimmerman called Beyoncé a “broke whore” and promised she and Jay would “find themselves inside a 13 foot gator.”

We’re told the messages were sent when Zimmerman was contacted by Dennis Warren, a private investigator who tracked down potential participants for the series. Warren found himself on the receiving end of hundreds of harassing messages and voicemails from the man acquitted in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
