Insensitive: These Halloween costumes featuring two Florida men portraying Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman created an online storm

An racially offensive set of Halloween costumes has caused widespread anger after they were published on social media on Friday night.

William Filene, 25, is dressed in blackface as Trayvon Martin, a splash of fake blood on his chest representing where the unarmed 17-year-old was fatally shot in the chest on February 2012.

Greg Cimeno, 22, is wearing a black T-shirt emblazoned with Neighborhood Watch. He portrays George Zimmerman, who was controversially acquitted of murder and manslaughter charges after a high-profile Florida trial in July.

The images were posted on Facebook and Instagram by Caitlin Cimeno - the woman who also features in the pictures. 

She captioned the images: 'Happy Halloween from Zimmerman & trayvon' with a smiley face emoticon.

 

The Smoking Gun reports that both men live in Cape Coral, Florida. Caitlin Cimeno reportedly lives in Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts.

Greg Cimeno commented 'Anything for the laugh' on Caitlin's posting. When some of her friends questioned the costumes by writing 'Not too funny,' Greg replied, 'Not too funny. It's f*****g hilarious!!!'

According to the Smoking Gun, Filene was sentenced to an auto theft felony in June. He reportedly has also got into trouble with authorities for loitering/prowling and failing to register an automobile.

When the images appeared online they immediately elicited an angry response from commenters, with many describing the images as offensive and insensitive.

One Twitter user wrote: 'I just saw a Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman Halloween costume. That is literally beyond disgusting. People make me so sick.' Other users defended the images as an original costume idea.

@Mr fix, what rock have you been living under, as long as guns legal, and white people run this counrty they will do as they please, get your head out of your ass. Twerking, and adting out of our race did not get Trayvon Martin killed, get it right. I do not know how old you are but I hope your old enough when we had black power in the  sixty's and seventies, and they still killed Dr Martin Luther King Jr, and Medga Evers. Black people came to America as slaves, and they will remind us of that, dating out of our race, twerking, is not going to stop white peope from killing us, it will stop when judgement day comes.

If you have a problem with this type of behavior then do something about it. What can you do and should do have respect for yourself love yourself respect your race unified with your race stop making excuse for white people and praising dating out of your race for money and credit building. Stop twerking on the internet you look like a****** respect is earn not given lets love each other and no one will dare F**K with us.
