Four short years ago, 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was gunned down in his father’s fiancee’s neighborhood while walking from the store. Carrying Skittles and an Arizona iced tea, Martin was fatally shot by George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer.

Because of Florida’s stand your ground law, Zimmerman was not charged directly after the incident. However, because Martin’s death become a media fire storm which garnered national attention, Zimmerman was eventually charged and put on trail months later. Even so, a jury of his peers acquitted him of the second-degree murder charges he incurred in July 2013.

Following the five year anniversary of Martin’s death (Feb. 26, 2017), Jay-Z collaborated with The Weinstein Company to produce a Martin-focused docu-series. The documentary is slated to air as a six-part series called Rest in Power: The Trayvon Martin Story and is based off of attorney Lisa Bloom’s book, Suspicion Nation. The future of the production is shaky because of Harvey Weinstein’s sexual harassment accusations, but the fact remains that Zimmerman isn’t happy about the series.

News of the production lead Zimmerman back into media headlines… but not in a good way. Apparently, he’s threatened Jay-Z over it.

Honestly, not a great look for anyone — but especially not for him.
