(Newser) – After a planned celebrity boxing match involving George Zimmerman caused controversy—including a White House petition against it, Philadelphia Magazine notes—the match has been canceled, according to its promoter. "I'm sorry for anyone I hurt with this but this was a very big opportunity thank you," Damon Feldman tweeted. "There's more to life then (sic) money." He added, per TMZ: "Just looked at my son and daughter today wow I'm so lucky those people must be in so much pain … All you people are right."

Why does this little twit deserve to have a celebrity boxing match?!?!?!?!? Actually you know what, let him go in the ring that way this little sucker can get his tail whipped inside of the ring by a real man. Somebody needs to show this no good son of a gun a lesson.

Basically the politically correct people are upset that the verdict didn't turn out to be pre-programmed political correctness. Don't forget the other side had to put up with the O.J. trial as well. Accept it and move on!
