Don’t worry, Miley. The celebrity boxing match between George Zimmerman and rapper DMX has been canceled by promoter Damon Feldman, who made the announcement on Twitter Saturday afternoon.
Feldman had come under fire for “glorifying” Zimmerman, who was acquitted of second-degree murder and manslaughter in the killing of Trayvon Martin.
@hollywoodbox11 If exploiting someone else's tragedy for your own business purposes is entertainment. YOU CAN"T BE THIS THICK #stopThefight

The Martin family deserves better. #StopTheFight RT “@hollywoodbox11: I want everyone to know this is all entertainment that's all”

It's not *just* entertainment. It's allowing a killer to profit off of the death he caused. #stopthefight @hollywoodbox11

No charity wants this blood money. Substitute @RealJesseRyan1 for #Trayvon's killer & your bills will be paid. @hollywoodbox11 #StopTheFight

@hollywoodbox11 @ReignOfApril you are so confused, my friend. Can't look past your own pockets to see that this is wrong on so many levels.

@hollywoodbox11 It's not hate, we just wish you could make a living without helping a killer profit from his deed. @ReignOfApril
