As if the events of the past few days haven’t been tragic enough, on Tuesday, a fake headline from The National Report website claiming “George Zimmerman Files Civil Suit Against Trayvon Martin’s Parents” has sent Twitter into an uproar over the article.

The suit alleges the parents of Trayvon Martin, failed to control their minor-age son on the evening of February 26, 2012, when Martin repeatedly assaulted Zimmerman, placing him in imminent fear for his life and resulting in the death of Martin.”
