As race relations continue to boil over following the George Zimmerman verdict, Nancy Grace had some bizarre allegations against the Hispanic 29-year-old on Friday night, after she suggested he is living a normal life, “driving through Taco Bell every night, having a churro,” while Trayvon Martin is still dead.

Her remarks come after defense lawyer Mark O’Mara begged the jury to let Mr. Zimmerman “get back to his life.”

“Give Zimmerman back his life? He’s out on bond driving through Taco Bell every night, having a churro,” the HLN host charged. “You know, long story short, he’s got his life. Who is going to give life back to Trayvon Martin? I find that, at the very least, a very poor choice of words.”

The comments come just weeks after celebrity chef Paula Deen lost her job, as well as millions of dollars in sponsorships, promotional contracts and book deals, because of racial language she used more than two decades ago.
