    A group of three white friends have ignited social media with a photo of themselves dressed in costume as George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin. The man dressed as Zimmerman wears a shirt that says “Neighborhoo Watch” and the young man dressed as Martin wears a hoodie with what appears to be blood on the front, near the area that the Florida teenager was shoot by neighborhood watch captain in February 2012. 

    Greg Cimeno, who posted a picture of himself dressed as George Zimmerman, with his friend, William Filene dressed in Blackface wearing a hoodie with a bloody bullet hole in the center of the chest. Cimeno is pointing his fingers like a gun at Filene.

    The girl in the images, Caitlin Cimeno, also posted the picture that has been called by some horrifically racist and insensitive. She added the caption “just for fun.”

    Her SOCIAL MEDIA profiles have since been made private.

    Cimeno, who described his costume as “hilarious” took to Facebook in anticipation on Oct. 25, posting that he was making the “best Halloween costume of the year.”

    The images quickly went viral.
