In an interview with a gossip website, George Zimmerman threatened to beat rap star Jay-Z and feed him to an alligator.

Zimmerman said last week that crews filming a six-part TV series about Travyon Martin were harassing his relatives by showing up to their homes unannounced, trying to get them speak on camera. Jay-Z, whose real name is Shawn Carter, is one of the producers of the project.

"Anyone who [expletive] with my parents will be fed to an alligator," Zimmerman told The Blast, a website founded by former TMZ staffers. 

Zimmerman shot and killed Travyon while the 17-year-old was walking through a neighborhood in Sanford, Florida, in 2012. A year later, the neighborhood watch member was acquitted in a trial that drew international attention.

Jay-Z is producing "Rest in Power: The Trayvon Martin Story," a docu-series about the case that is set to air on the Paramount Network. 

Zimmerman, who now lives in Virginia, has been involved in several violent incidents since his acquittal. 

Rapper Snoop Dogg also weighed in on Instagram, warning Zimmerman to steer clear of Jay-Z.

"If one hair on Jay's head is touched that’s when the revolution will be televised," Snoop Dogg wrote.
