HLN legal show host Nancy Grace is back in the headlines in a way her publicists might not appreciate. Shortly before the George Zimmerman ‘not guilty’ verdict was read on Saturday night, she claimed on the air – uncensored – that he had called African-Americans ‘f—king coons’ while on the phone with police.
But during a little-watched and little-noted broadcast on Friday, Grace used her own racial stereotype to refer to Zimmerman during her reaction to the closing statement from Zimmerman attorney Mark O’Mara.
‘Give Zimmerman back his life? He’s [been] out on bond, driving through Taco Bell every night, having a churro,’ she said.
