George Zimmerman Event Cancelled by Idaho Hotel

Brian Niemitz, New York Daily News, November 6, 2021

A weekend event featuring a speech by George Zimmerman was nixed by an Idaho hotel group after the company learned the man who killed Florida teenager Trayvon Martin was slated to be a headlining attraction at their venue.

The gathering, billed as the Lethal Force Gun Laws 2021 Tactics & Strategies Conference, was to have begun Friday and ended Monday at The Riverside Hotel in Boise.

The Idaho Statesman reports that the hotelier pulled the plug on the conference after learning about its “incendiary details” on social media. That report said the hotel owners cited for its reason the “immense pain” Zimmerman caused its “guests, team-members and community” {snip}

“With their respect and safety as our priority, we have canceled the event,” the hospitality team reportedly said in a statement. “We are unequivocally opposed to providing George Zimmerman a platform and he is not welcome at The Riverside Hotel.”
