Spike’s Snafu

If you’ve followed Spike Lee’s career you know that the man has never been known to hold his tongue. And apparently his thumbs are also becoming a problem. Just this week, Spike re-tweeted what he thought was George Zimmerman’s address. In case you’ve been under a rock, Zimmerman is the man responsible for Trayvon Martin’s murder and has yet to be arrested.  Turns out the address really belonged to an elderly couple in Sanford, Florida. Womp! The couple were the recipients of hate mail and even unwanted visitors. Spike later issued an apology to the couple and had to cough up some money for the trouble he caused. So, I realize that Zimmerman isn’t the most loved man in America right now but how is re-tweeting his address going to bring  justice to the Martin family? If anything it just makes a bad situation worse… Since this mistake cost Spike a couple of coins, hopefully he’s learned his lesson.
