The images were posted on Facebook and Instagram by Caitlin Cimeno – the woman who also features in the pictures.
She captioned the images: ‘Happy Halloween from Zimmerman & trayvon’ with a smiley face emoticon.
The Smoking Gun reports that both men live in Cape Coral, Florida. Caitlin Cimeno reportedly lives in Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts.
Greg Cimeno commented ‘Anything for the laugh’ on Caitlin’s posting. When some of her friends questioned the costumes by writing ‘Not too funny,’ Greg replied, ‘Not too funny. It’s f*****g hilarious!!!’
According to the Smoking Gun, Filene was sentenced to an auto theft felony in June. He reportedly has also got into trouble with authorities for loitering/prowling and failing to register an automobile.
When the images appeared online they immediately elicited an angry response from commenters, with many describing the images as offensive and insensitive.
One Twitter user wrote: ‘I just saw a Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman Halloween costume. That is literally beyond disgusting. People make me so sick.’ Other users defended the images as an original costume idea.
