George Zimmerman Banned From Both Tinder & Bumble
He may have gotten off for the brutal murder of the young Trayvon Martin, but that doesn’t mean that George Zimmerman has had an easy time at life since he was acquitted. He’s had numerous arrests (including multiple assaults) and now apparently, he can’t find love. Zimmerman has been officially banned from two of the top online dating sites for extreme profile inaccuracies.
According to reports, after discovering that he had created dating profiles that were completely inaccurate, both Tinder and Bumble banned him permanently.
The Tinder ban came after the website Creative Loafing uncovered screen grabs of Zimmerman’s profile, which he created under the fake name “Carter” and described himself as a “self-employed consultant.”
In an excerpt from the since-deleted profile, Zimmerman wrote that he is looking for “carefree, fun.” He also detailed that he enjoys activities such as hiking and camping, and he’s really
“not into huge crowds.”
Tinder wouldn’t specially confirm the details regarding Zimmerman’s banning, but they did release a statement:
“We take the safety of our users very seriously and acted appropriately once the profile was discovered.”
However, that’s not all because back in December 2018, Bumble took an even harder stance on Zimmerman’s fake profile, stating:
“George Zimmerman was blocked and banned in December 2018 when we first discovered his profile and we have blocked and banned him again after we were informed by our users that he had created a new unverified profile. We have thousands of moderators working tirelessly with our users to make Bumble the safest and most empowering social networking platform and this is another example of those efforts.”
At press time, Zimmerman hasn’t publicly commented on being banned from the dating sites.
