George Zimmerman Lawyer's Ice Cream-Eating Selfie Is Out of Order

Eye Roll 26

don west george zimmerman ice cream selfieYour honor, I object! Yesterday a tweeted photo surfaced of George Zimmerman's lawyer, Don West, eating soft-serve ice cream cones with his daughter Molly and another woman. Innocent enough as selfies go -- except for the caption. Molly posted it from her Twitter account, saying "We beat stupidity celebration cones #zimmerman #defense #dadkilledit." Ooh, Molly, isn't it a little early in the trial for an obnoxious end-zone dance?

Buzzfeed did the forensics, and going by the evidence (West's tie) it appears the selfie was taken on the day of his opening statements, when he told a knock-knock joke. I believe this was also the day West claimed that Trayvon Martin was "armed with a concrete sidewalk," so... I guess stupidity is open to interpretation.

Anyway, West's legal team scrambled last night to do damage control over Molly's gauche tweet. A spokesman says Molly is "mortified." Don West says, "We're not always pround of things our children do, but we love them anyway, and then we move on. We understand the context of the comments with what's happened in court this week are grossly insensitive." Ya think, Don? Meanwhile, Molly has deleted her Twitter account. 

What do you think Molly's photo and caption reveals about her dad's attitude about the case?

The knock knock joke sort of sealed it for me- the defense is way too lax considering their client killed  a 17 year old boy. Even if I killed someone in self defense it would haunt me the rest of my days and really upset me if people were making fun of the situation. It's still a life, it's still someone's child, someone loved him, and they're going through the worst time of their lives right now. It's not funny.

I hope to teach my daughters that all lives deserve respect, and murder trials aren't the place to be celebrating.

There's something white-powery about them all eating vanilla.  And men his age shuld eat ice cream cones in private, eww.

Knock knock, your client's guilty.

wow kitty. So white people can't eat vanilla ice cream now without being racist? I shudder to think what you would've come up with if he was eating chocolate.

After the week they had totally owning the state in court..Just be glad eating ice cream is all they are doing..but glad to see the stir has a bigger problem with ice cream than satutory rape or homophobia

The only thing that is stupid is when you have two dumb blondes posting remarks like this and their dad is handling the case; this is what happens when parents have not a clue as to what their kids are doing; dumb blondes like to party all night and make out with whomever(both males & females)....who does that but spoiled bratts; get a life
