A Halloween greeting featuring two enterprising, costume-wearing men — from Florida, no less — is gaining traction online, reminding viewers that among other things there's no accounting for taste:
William Filene, 25, is dressed as Trayvon Martin, wearing blackface make-up and a hoodie complete with a blood-stained bullet hole through the chest; Greg Cimeno, 22, is dressed as George Zimmerman, wearing a "Neighborhood Watch" T-shirt and holding two-fingers in the shape of a gun to Filene's head.
Zimmerman, who fatally shot Martin in February 2012, was acquitted last summer of murdering the unarmed Florida teenager during one of Zimmerman's nighttime neighborhood watches.
Filene and Greg Cimeno bookend Caitlin Cimeno, a Martha’s Vineyard resident who posted a photo of the three of them to her Facebook page Friday and captioned it “Happy Halloween from Zimmerman & trayvon" with a smiley face emoticon, noted The Smoking Gun.
Filene and Greg Cimeno reportedly live in Cape Coral, Fla. (Filene was arrested in June for felony auto theft; he's also been cuffed for loitering/prowling and failing to register an automobile, the Smoking Gun added.)
The photo no longer appears on Caitlin Cimeno's Facebook page, but according to the Smoking Gun, Greg Cimeno added comments along with others: “Anything for the laugh,” as well as the retort, "It’s f**king hilarious!!!”
Filene, Caitlin Cimeno, and Greg Cimeno are pictured below, left to right, out of costume, the Smoking Gun added:
So, would you hand out candy to Filene and Cimeno if they knocked on your front door Oct. 31 dressed as Martin and Zimmerman?
