Zimmerman's parents are suing Roseanne Barr
Suit claims Barr's tweet forced them to flee their home
George Zimmerman's parents are suing comedian Roseanne Barr.
According to the Sun Sentinel, Robert and Gladys Zimmerman filed the suit on Monday.
They say they had to leave their Lake Mary home because Barr posted their address on Twitter in March of 2012.
It was a month after their son George Zimmerman killed Trayvon Martin in Sanford, but before his arrest.
The Zimmermans claim Barr's tweets forced them to go into hiding.
They are seeking unspecified damages, accusing her of intentionally inflicting emotional distress.
The Zimmermans also say Barr violated Twitter's terms and conditions prohibiting publication of addresses and other confidential information
