LAKE MARY, Fla. -

George Zimmerman's parents have filed a lawsuit against comedienne and actress Roseanne Barr.

The couple's complaint stems from a tweet Barr posted in 2012 that included the Zimmerman's address.

Robert and Gladys Zimmerman said they had to flee their home in the middle of the night and have been forced into hiding as a result of the tweet.

They are seeking damages in excess of $15,000.

Their son, George Zimmerman, made headlines in February 2012 after he shot and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in a gated community.

Zimmerman was acquitted of second-degree murder and manslaughter last July.
