George Zimmerman, the man who shot and killed unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin in 2012, has been suspended from Twitter.

Twitter took down Zimmerman’s account, @TherealGeorgeZ, on Thursday after multiple sources report he posted topless photos of a woman he said was his ex-girlfriend, and shared what he claimed were her email address and phone number.

“She cheated on me with a dirty Muslim,” Zimmerman wrote in one tweet. “She’ll sleep with anyone.”

He also accused the woman of stealing cash and a gun.

Zimmerman’s brother, Robert Zimmerman, confirmed to The Huffington Post in September that @TherealGeorgeZ, is authentic.

The tweets came at around 1:45 p.m. Thursday, and by about 3:15 p.m., Twitter had suspended his account, Mediaite reports. A Twitter spokesperson told The Huffington Post that Twitter doesn't comment on individual accounts, but noted, "I can share our policy against posting another person's private and confidential information." The policy notes that posting private, personal email addresses and phone numbers is prohibited, as is posting "intimate photos" without the subject's consent.

Though revenge porn is what ultimately did Zimmerman's account in, it's hardly the first reprehensible thing he tweeted. Here are some Zimmerman Twitter low points:

The Time He Re-Tweeted A Photo Of Trayvon Martin’s Body

Zimmerman retweeted a photo showing Trayvon Martin -- the teen whom he shot and killed in 2012 -- lying dead in the grass. The photo was originally posted by Twitter user @SeriousSlav, who included the caption “Z-man is a one man army.”

The Time He Said The Lives Of ‘Black Slime’ Don’t Matter

The known killer of an unarmed black person tweeted the words “Cops lives matter, black slime doesnt [sic]”

The Time He Called President Barack Obama An “Ignorant Baboon”

Zimmerman tweeted a quote by Obama, in which the president noted that more people die from gun-related threats in the United States than from terrorism. Instead of attributing the quote to Obama, however, Zimmerman cited “Ignorant Baboon.”

The Time He Appeared To Call His Victim, Trayvon Martin, A “Moron”

“We all know how it ended for the last moron that hit me. Give it a whirl cupcake,” Zimmerman wrote in response to a Twitter user who referenced slapping Zimmerman for "Slap-An-Idiot Wednesday."

The Time He Promoted His Confederate Flag Paintings

Zimmerman teamed up with the owner of a self-proclaimed “Muslim-free” gun store in Florida to sell prints of his painting of a Confederate flag in August. On Twitter, he claimed his painting “represents the hypocrisy of political correctness that is plaguing this nation.” Sure, George. That’s what the Confederate flag represents.
