Controversial boxing promoter Damon Feldman has reportedly cancelled the “Celebrity Boxing Match” between rapper DMX and George Zimmerman. Feldman created a stir amongst Americans when it was announced that the promoter was putting together a match between the rapper and the infamous Florida native. Petitions began to circulate in opposition of the fight. Numerous media outlets brought light to the question “how could Zimmerman be considered a celebrity?” and people began to revisit the idea of whether Zimmerman was truly guilty of his crime or not.
Feldman recently told CNN reporters that he stood firm in his decision to carry out the match because it would generate a lot of money for him and charity. But the pressure from society has apparently wavered Feldman. He tweeted “All you people are right…I want to thank everyone for the good n bad comments I’ve made the choice to cancel the fight w George Zimmerman more to life than money.”
