Spike Lee Apologizes For Tweeting Wrong Address of George Zimmerman And Putting Elderly Florida Couple In Danger
Posted by Media Outrage on March 29th, 2012
Damn Spike! We know 2 people that will probably no longer support any of his movies where the characters glide right at you instead of walk…
Peep how Spike Lee put an elderly couple’s life and well being in danger by Tweeting their address instead of George Zimmerman’s….
Spike Lee has apologized to a Florida couple who say they were forced to leave their home when a Twitter posting that the director helped spread listed their address as that of a man who shot an unarmed teenager.
Elaine and David McClain are in their 70s and say they have a son named William George Zimmerman who lived in their Sanford-area home in the mid-1990s. They say he is no relation to 28-year-old George Zimmerman who killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin on Feb. 26.
The killing has touched off widespread public outrage and protests across the country, including from Lee and other celebrities, because Zimmerman was not arrested. He says he acted in self-defense.
Lee tweeted late Wednesday: “I Deeply Apologize To The McClain Family For Retweeting Their Address. It Was A Mistake. Please Leave The McClain’s In Peace.”
