It seems George Zimmerman still used MySpace up until the day of his arrest.
A new picture of Zimmerman has surfaced from his days on the social network site, revealing his name to be “datniggytb,” a nickname given to him by his black friends.
According to the Daily Caller, a family member whose identity remained anonymous for safety reasons, says:
“That was an old nickname his black friends gave him. He didn’t have an issue with the profile name.”
Asked about the significance of the letters “tb” at the end of the username, the family member insisted that they did not stand for Trayvon Benjamin, his shooting victim’s first and middle names.
“They called him ‘Tugboat’ because he was so big,” he said.
Zimmerman is currently being held in a Seminole County jail a day after special prosecutor Angela Corey charged him with second degree murder in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
