Bizarre Instagram photo’s connection to George Zimmerman trial

Posted: Updated:
SANFORD (FOX 13) -

A picture of George Zimmerman's attorney is causing quite a stir online.

An Instagram photo posted by the daughter of defense attorney Don West shows West and his two daughters eating ice cream cones. The caption said, "We beat stupidity celebration cones," and the hashtag "#dadkilledit."

Prosecutors say the picture was posted after West's tense cross-examination of Rachel Jeantel last week. West said in a court filing on Tuesday that the photo was taken a day before Jeantel testified, and claims it has nothing to do with her testimony.

He called the prosecution's motion "irresponsible" and said he had nothing to do with the posting of the photo or the caption.

In a statement, West said, "Sometimes our children do things that deeply disappoint us, but we love them anyway, and we move on."

West said he has stopped for ice cream each night since the trial started, and he was joined by his daughters a week ago. They decided to capture the moment with a photo because one of his daughters lives out of town.
