George Zimmerman's brother, Robert Jr., has ditched an appearance on Piers Morgan's show after slamming Morgan for "garbage" tweets.

Zimmerman was interviewed by Morgan on Saturday night following the verdict, during which he said Martin's death was "unfortunate" but that the unarmed black teenager had a "greater hand in his own demise."

Zimmerman linked to a post on Twitchy, conservative columnist Michelle Malkin's Twitter news site, which listed several of Morgan's anti-Zimmerman tweets, two of which were hashtagged "#RIPTrayvon." Zimmerman tweeted his disappointment with Morgan's words:

.@piersmorgan This garbage--> http://t.co/Xvy1YXIBxo fans flames, perpetuates fiction & puts our lives in danger. Find another guest 2Nite.

Morgan responded:

So @rzimmermanjr has just pulled out of my show tonight because of my 'garbage' tweets about his brother. I stand by them all. #RIPTrayvon

Zimmerman tweeted that he would be appearing on "On the Record with Greta Van Susteren" instead, though "Greta" has yet to confirm this.
