Twitter suspended George Zimmerman from its social media service Thursday after he tweeted tweeted naked pictures of his alleged girlfriend.

Attempts to load Zimmerman’s profile on Thursday afternoon yielded a message from Twitter stating “This account has been suspended.”

The notice appeared shortly after Zimmerman, 32, posted at least two lewd messages on Twitter which targeted his apparent partner.

“This is [redacted],” he wrote shortly before 2 p.m. Florida time. “She cheated on me with a dirty Muslim.”

Attached to the first tweet was a topless image of a blonde woman along with her purported phone number and the claim “she’ll sleep with anyone.”

Several minutes later, Zimmerman shared a similar image of the same woman along with her email address.

As a neighborhood watchman in 2012, Zimmerman gained notoriety for fatally shooting Trayvon Martin, a 17-year-old Florida boy who had been walking to his father’s house in a gated community. Zimmerman was eventually acquitted of second-degree murder.

Earlier this year, Zimmerman was at the center of social media controversy after he retweeted a picture of the teen’s corpse.
