Spike

Directs His Anger

9/7/2007 9:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

With a name like Spike Lee, is it any wonder he's prone to violence?

TMZ cameras caught up with the "Lovers and Haters" director outside of Koi, and when asked if he'd ever shoot a movie with the paparazzi, Spike said, "I'd shoot everybody." Run for cover!

C'mon Spike, do the right thing!

The only good movie he ever made was Malcolm X. I cannot stand this dude, he really makes me sick with his no having career...

The problem you have with people like Spike Lee is they are always mad about something. Also, they are bigots and think the world is a bigot like them!!!

Dude definitely has some anger issues. You never see him smile, and he's always mad and bitter about something. And yes, #3 is right. Spike, dude, all of us are not bigots, man.

Spike is one of the best directors in the business....hands down. Just because he is not always grinning in someone's face does not mean that he is angry. White people are not as concerned (scared) with his look, as they are his messages. One thing is for sure, Spike got his 40 Acres and a Mule.

hmmm    

TMZ is stretching...*rolling eyes*
He was trying to be clever.
shoot=to direct (for a director)
shoot=to take pictures (for the paparazzi)
shoot=to shoot with a gun (to the general public)
It didn't come off as tongue in cheek as it was probably supposed to

YO YO    

WHY DOES THIS HAVE TO BE ABOUT BLACK AND WHITE? I WOULD BE A LITTLE PISSED IF I HAD CAMERAS IN MY FACE. GIVE HIM HIS SPACE IS PROBABLY WHAT HE WOULD HAVE LIKED TO HAVE SAID. ALL I HAVE TO SAY IS PAPS BETTER WATCH THERE BACKS.

Hahaha.. GOOD shoot them!! In response to 1st poster, Spike Lee has made PLENTY of good movies. He also did a great job directing the "When the Levees Broke" series.. Actually, only a couple of his movies would I consider to be BAD.

On second thought:
not only is the TMZ writer's comment flavored with racism, it is just dense!
Lee was making a joke - it is so simple!
He was saying that he would shoot (film) everybody, which has a secondary
meaning that he would shoot (as in firing a gun) the paparazzi as well. The
joke conveys his frustration with the annoying paparazzi.

Being someone who is not violent, he doesn't think that people would
hear it like some kind of real threat.
