Jeff Garlin: 'I Won't Go Back To Florida' Until Stand Your Ground Is Repealed (VIDEO)

"Curb Your Enthusiasm" star Jeff Garlin swung by HuffPost Live on Wednesday to promote his new movie "Dealin' with Idiots," and didn't hold back on his opinion about the not guilty verdict in the George Zimmerman murder trial.

"Until the law is changed, I won't go back to Florida," Garlin said, referring to the state's infamous "stand-your-ground" law (which was not actually used as a defense in the trial).

The actor and stand-up comedian has roots in the state. He attended high school and college in Fort Lauderdale and Miami, respectively, and launched his comedy career there.

He told host Ricky Camilleri that he cannot altogether blame the jurors in the case for carrying out a law that he believes is unjust.

"Standing your ground -- what does that mean?" Garlin asked. "It means you can do what you want. You wanna shoot a black kid, have fun."
