Remember when Spike Lee tweeted George Zimmerman’s address, except it wasn’t?

Font Size:

There was an elderly couple living there who had nothing to do with any of it. They actually had to flee their home because of the complete irresponsibility of a race-baiting jackass.

Their nightmare isn’t over, as Kerry Picket at Breitbart.com reports:

Local Florida outlets are reporting an old tweet from film director Spike Lee is making the rounds again and is causing an elderly Florida couple with no connection to the George Zimmerman trial great distress.

At the height of the protests in 2012 in response to the Trayvon Martin shooting, Lee re-tweeted to hundreds of thousands of followers a Sanford, FL address he believed to belong to Zimmerman.

However, the address was not only incorrect but belonged to David and Elaine McClain…

WFTV is now reporting the McClains are concerned about online threats again. They are worried about their safety when the verdict of the Zimmerman trial emerges. Sanford Police are reportedly parked outside of the McClain’s home and monitoring it after their address began to circulate around the web as the home of the man accused of murdering Trayvon Martin. According to WFTV, an individual also delivered a pizza they did not order to their home under the name “Zimmerman.”

Way to go, Spike. Whatever you were forced to pay them, whatever mealy-mouthed apology you were forced to give, it wasn’t nearly enough. In one moment of self-righteous rage, you’ve made a harmless old couple look over their shoulders for the rest of their lives.

Do the right thing. Yeah. When have you ever?

P.S. And your Oldboy remake looks like $#!+. I’ll just watch the original again, dick.
