    With Valentine's Day right around the corner, George Zimmerman suffered somewhat of a sting in his quest for company.

    Bumble, a popular dating app, bumped him from the dating app, again.

    The Orlando Weekly obtained screenshots of Zimmerman's Bumble profile and shared them with CBS12 News. One caption reads, "Let's get coffee and cake pops I'm looking for a mature and fun woman that's ready to be loved and respected the way she deserves and is able to reciprocate," and shows a photo of Zimmerman with a dog. The profile shows George, 35, is a self-employed jury consultant. Other screen shots show him shirtless and in a graduation cap and gown, with the caption, "The class clown and her favorite student."

    A representative from Bumble shared this statement with CBS12 News:

    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. We have thousands of moderators working tirelessly with our users to make Bumble the safest and most empowering social networking platform and this is another example of those efforts.

    Zimmerman made headlines in 2012 when he shot and killed Trayvon Martin while working as a neighborhood watch volunteer in Sanford. A jury acquitted him of all charges a year later at his trial. Last year, Zimmerman told the court he's $2.5 million in debt. He pleaded no contest last year after being accused of stalking a private investigator.
