Snoop Dogg on Sunday warned George Zimmerman against threatening his fellow rapper Jay-Z with violence.
“If one hair on [Jay’s] hair is touched that’s when the revolution will [be] televised,” he wrote in an Instagram post about Zimmerman making menacing remarks to Jay-Z.
“We one and to thank the system let the b---h a-s muthaf---a get away with murder try it again,” Dogg continued. “Trayvon Martin Gone but not forgotten.”
Zimmerman last Saturday told The Blast that a production team working on an upcoming documentary series produced by Jay-Z “harassed” his family for footage and interviews.
“I know how to handle people who f—k with me, I have since February 2012,” he said, seemingly referencing the fatal shooting of Martin he was involved in that year.
Zimmerman said that Michael Gasparro, the series’ executive producer, made unannounced visits to his parents and uncle’s homes in Florida two weeks ago.
“Anyone who f---s with my parents will be fed to an alligator,” he said while refusing to elaborate on what the harassment against his family was.
Zimmerman would also not answer whether his family agreed at any point to go on camera for the program.
Variety reported last March that Jay-Z and the Weinstein Company were partnering on a six-part documentary series about Martin’s death in 2012.
The series is titled “Rest in Power: The Trayvon Martin Story” and is based on the book “Suspicion Nation” by Lisa Bloom, an attorney who covered the case for NBC.
Martin, 17, was fatally shot and killed in Sanford, Florida in 2012 while Zimmerman was a member of the community’s neighborhood watch.
Zimmerman claimed he shot Martin, who was unarmed, in self defense after the two become involved in a physical confrontation.
The former neighborhood watchman was ultimately acquitted of second-degree murder in 2013, prompting protests across the U.S. over the case’s outcome.
Martin’s death sparked fierce national debate over America’s criminal justice system and the role racial profiling plays in it.
