UPDATE: 6/29/2013: Zimmerman’s defense team has confirmed that the picture is of West and his “mortified” daughters. According to their spokesperson, they apologized for the “grossly insensitive” image, reports Buzzfeed.
Allegedly West had no idea that his daughters posted the picture.
A disturbing photo of Don West, defense attorney for George Zimmerman, 29, who is currently on trial for the February 26, 2012 fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, went viral after it was posted on Instagram by his teenage daughter, Molly West.
The photo, which has since been deleted, shows West taking a selfie while eating ice-cream cones with Molly, and another daughter Rachel, soon after opening the trial with an extremely inappropriate knock-knock joke.
As previously reported by NewsOne, West believes he’s a regular comedian:
“George Zimmerman, who?”
“Alright good. You’re on the jury.”
When the joke was met with silence, West urged the jury to lighten up.
“Nothing?” asked West, skeptically. “That’s funny.”
