POP NEWS: Zimmerman tossed from Twitter; Spielberg ponders new Indy

The notorious George Zimmerman is kicked off Twitter for certain violations and film director Steven Spielberg talks of the return of Indiana Jones.

George Zimmerman, the Florida man who was accused, and acquitted, of murdering young Travon Martin back in 2012 was recently booted from Twitter. Aside from Zimmerman being able to sling anti-Muslim musings, bigotry, harassment, and misogyny in an impressive 140 characters or less, he was slammed for sending along topless photos of a former girlfriend to his 15,000 followers, according to USA Today.

On Thursday, he mentioned to all of his followers that the bare breasted woman’s name was Heather. His tweeted comments were, “This is Heather. She cheated on me with a dirty Muslim. She’ll sleep with anyone.”

Apparently so, George. In follow up tweets he revealed the woman’s phone number as well as accusing her of stealing both a gun and some cash from him. Twitter, it seems, has finally had enough of his antics. First off, it seems Zimmerman violated Twitter’s terms of use which state that “intimate photos” can’t be posted without the consent of the person being shown. Also, Florida has a law outlawing what is terms “revenge porn”.

In addition to all of this, Zimmerman has recently called President Obama a racist, went on a brutal and mind numbing rant about homesexuality, and posted a picture of Travon Martin’s dead body.



Film director Steven Spielberg was quoted recently as saying that he hopes to do yet another Indiana Jones adventure despite the lackluster box office and critical performance of his Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skulls. But, no matter, because for Spielberg there will only be one Indiana Jones and that is Harrison Ford.

According to USA Today, Spielberg said, “I don’t think anyone can replace Harrison as Indy. I don’t think that’s ever going to happen.”

Spielberg also mentioned in a recent interview that he does intend to make another Indiana Jones movie and only the 73 year old Harrison Ford would be exactly right for the part. Ford, not one to shy away from his celebrity, doesn’t seem to have a problem playing the legendary Indiana Jones once more. After all, he returned in the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens to reprise another equally legendary character in the guise of Hans Solo.

Ford said, “Yeah. I’d love to do another Indiana Jones. A character that has a history and a potential…what’s not to like?”
