GEORGE ZIMMERMAN: Petition Launched to Stop Possible Boxing Match With DMX
Will rapper DMX get to beat the hell out of George Zimmerman?
Though some outlets had been reporting that it was a done deal, the match is still in negotiations. A spokesman for the rapper tells CNN, "DMX has promised to 'beat his [butt],' but no contract or paperwork has been signed or agreed to yet."
Even if he signs the contract, the fight might not happen. A petition on Whitehouse.gov has been launched to stop it. The petition urges the government to cancel the match, because "no Promoter or Celebrity Boxer should ever be allowed to use racial tension to profit." If the petition gets 100,000 signatures, the White House is obliged to issue a formal comment.
