Spike Lee Re-Tweets Wrong Address of George Zimmerman

Spike Lee is known for making controversial statements. However, the filmmaker made a crucial mistake in an attempt to spark retaliation against Trayvon Martin’s killer, George Zimmerman.

Last week, Lee re-tweeted an address that was labeled as George Zimmerman’s to his 200,000 followers. However, the address that Lee re-tweeted belonged to a 41 year-old man name William George Zimmerman. The man’s parents currently reside at the address and have been bombarded by visitors and news media.

Lee has yet to speak about the incident and could possibly face a lawsuit.

Should Spike Lee apologize, or should he be given a pass for his attempt at protest?–amir shaw

    Spike Lee is one of the biggest racists there is!  I hope the Zimmerman family that was targeted by him sues him for a Billion Dollars!  I have yet to see or hear anything he has ever had anything to do with because of his racism!

      I totally agree! Midget minnie spike should lose 20 million in a lawsuit from these people. They had nothing to do with this. And how low of an IQ does Lee have? Like the gunman is really going to be at his real address anyway. What with 25% of America after him. Maybe he is in his Mother’s native South American country of Peru.
