Larry Wilmore Begs His Crew Not To Celebrate George Zimmerman Being Shot In The Face

The Nightly Show's Larry Wilmore had a bit of trouble keeping his staff under control after they heard the news that George Zimmerman supposedly was shot in the face.

The Nightly Show's Larry Wilmore opened his show with some "big news in the world of wrongfully acquitted unhinged menaces" otherwise known as George Zimmerman, who was injured in a shooting incident this Monday.

After showing a bit of the coverage of Zimmerman where a local reporter described Zimmerman as a "bad boy" and what happened "antics," Wilmore responded.

WILMORE: The antics? Of Florida's bad boy? The guy murdered an unarmed child. He's not the Fonze. Ayyyyeee, I should be in prison. Whoa.

Alright, let's get this Zimmerman update.

Wilmore went on to show some footage where they mistakenly assumed that Zimmerman got shot in the face, which he didn't. It turned out to be a minor injury instead. Despite the fact that the reporting was wrong, it was all Wilmore could to to keep his staff under control and them wanting to celebrate Zimmerman's misery.

All I can say is that Zimmerman is deserving of every bit of scorn and mockery he receives at this point and that's the least of what he deserves.
