    Its true regardless if you like it or not. I see somebody bending over backwards to make sure Zimmerman gets off free as a bird but they want Lee treated as a leper. I will point out this hypocrisy regardless if you approve or not.

    It's like the Minute Men. They have zero connection to the original Minute Men - but they use the same name for name recognition purposes.

    Perhaps you will have the intellectual integrity to reproduce my numerous posts in which I jumped to the defense of Spike Lee on this issue?

    Twitter cases have been seen more and more. There's no reason to think a law suit cannot be reasonably expected here. I'll refer you to:

    Spooner vs. The Associate Press

    Courtney Love was sued once successfully for $430K for defamation, and is being sued again for something she tweeted. So I don't think it's out of the realm of possibility here.
    Courtney Love was the originator of her tweets. Spike Lee was retweeting.

    Kill Zimmerman | Twitter | Trayvon Martin | The Daily Caller

    Sure. Goodluck proving that Spike Lee is specifically responsible for anything that happens to these people after he like many others posted. If they plan to sue every single person who retweeted the message, I wish them good luck. But singling out Spike Lee makes them look like money grabbers.

    Didn't he retweet it twice, once after being informed it was the wrong address?
