George Zimmerman, the man who shot and killed Trayvon Martin, is looking to date, but Tinder and Bumble don’t want to help.
Tinder confirmed to TIME that Zimmerman’s profile has been deleted in a statement.
According to screen grabs obtained by the site Tampa Bay Creative Loafing, Zimmerman concealed his identity to appeal to women on Tinder. He used the alias “Carter” and described himself as a self-employed consultant and graduate of Liberty University.
A Bumble spokesperson also confirmed to the Orlando Sentinel that the company has twice banned Zimmerman from its app.
“George Zimmerman was blocked and banned in December 2018 when we first discovered his profile and we have blocked and banned him again after we were informed by our users that he had created a new unverified profile,” the spokesperson said, according to the Sentinel.
Although Zimmerman gained notoriety for killing the unarmed 17-year-old in 2012, he also allegedly has a history of mistreating his romantic partners. He has been accused of assault multiple times – including threatening his ex-wife with a gun and throwing a bottle at an ex-girlfriend.
