Zimmerman said the threats sometimes average 400 per minute.
One specific threatening situation Zimmerman found himself in happened at a Starbucks in Washington, D.C. He stated:
Someone was very ugly to me at a Starbucks. I was with an infant and her mother while her husband pulled the car around. Someone thought I was George Zimmerman. I said, no, George is in jail. They started saying, "we know you’re Zimmerman; it’s right here on the receipt..."
They pulled out their phones and started texting people and calling people. Someone finally noticed the receipt said Robert instead of George, or R instead of G, and they said ‘Oh, it’s not George Zimmerman’ and they all calmed down. Someone then said ‘Yeah, but you look like that Mother f***er and if you were anyone of the Zimmerman’s we were going to take you outside and beat the sh*t out of you.’ They were both Starbucks employees.
