After a public outcry over a proposed plan to have DMX fight George Zimmerman in a celebrity boxing match, promoter Damon Feldman came to his senses and canceled the event.

On Saturday (Feb. 8), Feldman went on Twitter to announced that he decided to canceled the controversial event. But for some unknown reason, he deleted all of the tweets.

Thankfully, Mediate was able to capture Feldman’s messages to his followers.

“The George Zimmerman fight is canceled I’m sorry for anyone I hurt with this but this was a very big opportunity thank you,” he wrote. “I want to thank everyone for the good [and] bad comments. I’ve made the choice to cancel the fight [with] George Zimmermann more to life then money.”

He then added, “I walked away from [a] million dollar payday with this fight but to be honest I’d rather be happy and make people happy thank you.”

On the rest of his timeline, however, Feldman seemed a little bitter that he had to cancel the fight. Although DMX was ready to duke it out with Zimmerman, much to the everyone’s chagrin, the rapper’s PR rep, Domenick Nati, said that no contract was signed.

Nevertheless, it appears that Feldman will hold a press conference on Wednesday (Feb. 12) to explain his position. Oh, and he has a message for all the haters out there. Read the tweets below.
