George Zimmerman Apology

Breaking his silence for the first time since the shooting, George apologizes in a new interview but says it was ‘all part of God’s plan.’ Are you surprised?

Since the February shooting that left young Trayvon Martin dead, George Zimmerman hadn’t participated in any public interviews. But in a new interview on Wednesday, July 18, George broke his silence — and apologized.

When asked in an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity what he’d say to Trayvon’s parents, George said, “I would tell them that again, I am sorry. I’m sorry they buried their child. I can’t imagine what it must feel like. And I pray for them daily.”

George, 28, has been charged with second-degree murder for shooting 17-year-old Trayvon in what George says was self-defense. He has pleaded not guilty and has been free on $1 million bond since early July.

What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Are you surprised that George has broken his silence?
