Caitlin Cimeno is a Massachusetts mother of two who is in search of a new job after she was fired for posting a photo with two people dressed up as George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin in a pose that the word “offensive” doesn’t even begin to describe.
William Filene, (who, according to Smoking Gun is a convicted felon) dressed up as Trayvon Martin. He painted on blackface and wore a hoodie with blood splattered on the chest. Yes, in the same place that the real Trayvon Martin was shot by George Zimmerman. Greg Cimeno dressed the part of George Zimmerman, sporting a shirt that said “Neighborhood Watch” and making the gesture of a gun with his hand, holding it up to Trayvon’s (Filene’s) head for the photo.
Hours after posting the photos, Cimeno deleted them, changed her Instagram name and locked all of her social media once she saw how serious the backlash was.
Obviously Caitlin doesn’t know how the internet works.
Within minutes the internet wasted no time and social media users found out all her information through photos she posted of herself at work (in uniform), pictures she posted of her children, and even her license plate number.
It probably didn’t help her case that a plethora of screenshots were taken showing numerous other instances where Cimeno was very uncut in expressing opinions that many would consider to be racist.
