UPDATE 6/29 8:56 AM EST:
Don West responds to the photo in a statement, saying:
“As a parent, we’re not always proud of things our children do, but we love them anyway, and then we move on.”
Meanwhile, Zimmerman’s defense team spokesperson Shawn Vincent practically defends the Instagram , saying in a statement to Local10.com:
“[West] was doing something he does almost every day, an old tradition with his daughters. They went out for ice cream. Don had no idea that she’d post it on Instagram… The girls like to make fun of their dad frequently.”
Really?! C’mon son!
Don West, the man on the right, is one of George Zimmerman’s attorneys, re: that knock-knock joke.
It wasn’t very smart of him to open a murder trial with a knock-knock joke, and apparently, it runs in the family, because his daughter Instagrammed a photo this week that she probably shouldn’t have.
His daughter, presumably Molly West, took the above photo with her dad this week with the caption:
We beat stupidity celebration cones #zimmerman #defense #dadkilledit
Let’s not even get into how inappropriate this is. But, let’s note that she hashtagged #dadkilledit in the courtroom for a murder trial, where someone was actually killed.
The account has since been deactivated.
