Trayvon Martin: Spike Lee apologizes for retweet that drove Fla. couple from home - latimes.comSpike Lee, the noted film director and civil rights activist, is in talks to resolve complaints from a Florida couple who say they were forced from their home when he retweeted their address to his Twitter followers as part of the ongoing furor surrounding the shooting of Trayvon Martin.
Elaine and David McClain, in their 70s, left their Sanford, Fla., home after their address was tweeted by a man who thought he had found the home of George Zimmerman, the 28-year-old who shot Martin, 17.Martin, a black 17-year-old, was unarmed at the time of the shooting. Zimmerman, 28, the son of a white father and a Latina, said he fired in self-defense in the Feb. 26 incident.
The McClains happen to have a son named William George Zimmerman who lived there in 1995. Their son is not related to the George Zimmerman who shot Martin.
I hope like hell Lee goes to jail for this. Unconscionable.
