Spike Lee Doesn’t “Do The Right Thing”
Spike Lee was outraged over the killing of unarmed Florida teen, Trayvon Martin, at the hands of neighborhood watchman, George Zimmerman. So much so, the “Red Hook Summer” director Tweeted out what he thought was Zimmerman’s address, back in March. Well, the address he shared with over a half million of his followers actually belonged to elderly couple David and Elaine McClain, who had nothing to do with the incident. The couple is now now suing Lee with claims that he’s put their lives in grave danger.
TMZ reports that in the lawsuit, the McClains say they received numerous death threats and hate mail and feared for their lives as their address was re-Tweeted countless times. SMH. I understand being upset about this tragedy, but to Tweet someone’s personal address when you have as much influence as SPIKE LEE is just irresponsible. We’ll keep you posted with what the couple wins.
