As a result, the promoter took to Twitter to defend himself against charges he's trying to turn Zimmerman into a celebrity. He wrote, "A lot of jealous people out there -- if you're not paying my bills and child support, mind your own business... Never said the guy was a celebrity -- [it's] the company name. I love everyone. I don't deal with racial people."
