Dressed in Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman Halloween costumes.
A Massachusetts woman was reportedly fired after racially insensitive images surfaced online of her sons dressed as Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman for Halloween.
Caitlin Cimeno reportedly posted photos of her sons, William Filene and Greg Cimeno, with the caption: "Happy Halloween from Zimmerman & trayvon (insert smiley face emoji here)," according to a piece by Myeisha Essex at BlackAmericaWeb.
Following the outrageous post, members of the social media world not only tracked her down, but eventually also her employer, who told a caller that she no longer worked there, reports show.....

For pete’s sake. If you’re going to do something stupid, DON’T PUT IT ONLINE! Geeesh!
It was fun growing up and living in a free country for many years.
I grieve for my children and grandchildren.........
Well... this wasn’t prudent, but still it’s a sad (and cautionary) illustration of where our free speech ideals are going. Now that supposed victims get a veto.
I am completely offended. The costumes are not accurate. They have to put Trayvon on top of Zimmerman smashing his head in.
When we saw a car coming, we'd both get out just enough to be sure the driver could see us ... he'd slow down a little, but we kept walking.
At just the right time, we faced each other and "pulled a rope" across the street.
What the driver saw was two individuals raising some sort of barrier ... and stopped.
We laughed our asses off ... it was all mime.
Sounds like conservatives should fire employees who pushed for a conviction of Zimmerman.
People are free to condemn her, and her employer was free to fire her.
It seems Holidays just aren’t the same any longer. The spirit of this nation HAS DIED! You can’t do $h!# anymore without offending someone. All this sensitivity BS will only breed weakness. Remember this is nu skool now, ole school is gone.
Woman’s Boston Marathon bombing victim ‘costume’ fuels online rage
I don’t know which is more assinine.
1). What the son did.
2). What the Mom did.
3). Your editorializing of the headline.
In case you haven’t figured it out - she should have been fired.
The only really important thing about the attempted murderer Trayvon is that he is dead and no longer a threat to society, especially white society.
Actually, she was fired for posting it or as we say in the IT world “for being too stupid to work here”.
Much self righteous indignation from hypocrits. Where was their outrage over that New Black Panthers Party guy on the street calling for the murder of white people, even the killing of white babies? That same guy was one of the thugs seen in front of that Philadelphia voting poll with a club in his hand intimidating white people standing in line waiting to vote. This same miscreant went down to Florida to stand on the street calling for a bounty on Zimmerman’s head. Hypocrisy with no sense of proportion.
Is Caitlin the woman in the picture? Looks too young to be the mother. Caitlin is from Mass. and sons are from Florida so I don’t think it’s her.
Post of the day.
The black racist writing the article has no problem naming the woman who posted the pictures but will not list the employer who fired her for posting the pictures. I personally am so sick of black “outrage” that I could care less if they are insulted by blackface. Get back to me when black thugs stop assualting old white (or white hispanic) men for sport and then we can talk about racism.
