Roddy White, Victor Cruz, Tyrann Mathieu send regretful George Zimmerman tweets

George Zimmerman was acquitted on Saturday in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, and the Florida jury’s findings caused an uproar among many people. A few athletes shared their thoughts on the acquittal, and the results were some pretty tasteless tweets.

Arizona Cardinals defensive back Tyrann Mathieu said the verdict “make you wanna scream free Aaron Hernandez.”

Mathieu deleted that tweet.

New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz predicted that Zimmerman would be killed as people in the hood got revenge:

Victor Cruz George Zimmerman

He deleted that tweet.

White’s Twitter feed is a stream of controversy, so it’s no surprise he has not deleted.
