Spike Lee is taking major heat for jumping into the Trayvon Martin controversy by retweeting the wrong George Zimmerman's home address. Great way to start a lynch mob, right? Now, Spike's screw up is sparking an Internet race war ... and tension in the TMZ newsroom.

Plus, MTV star Rob Dyrdek calls in to explain why being rich already won't stop him from dropping $2k on the next Mega Millions drawing! Also, Rihanna gets slammed by Clay Aiken -- and everyone thinks he's right. Yeah, it's weird ... take a look.

If Carson's comments/joke came from Kathy Griffin or Lisa Lampanelli instead, would this still even be an issue?

He needs to keep his has-been mouth shut. I wonder why Clay Aiken is subjected to doing the Celebrity Apprentice and she's a huge superstar.

Raquel (TMZ employee) is a MORON and a punk! George Zimmerman was get the crap kicked out of him and he defended himself PERIOD. That's why he wasn't charged because of his injuries.

OMG, I can't believe people are jumping to conclusions. He has not been arrested because there is more to the story than the media is reporting. There were appartenly 2 witnesses which called 911 during the struggle and the shooter had evidence of physically fighting.

Oh and George Zimmerman was supposed to follow Trayvon and ask him what he was doing. He was patroling for neighborhood watch in a GATED community. GEEZ!!! And how the heck can you say that he knew he was black when he started following him when it was dark and he had a hoodie on. A white dude would look just as suspious walking late at night with a hoodie on in a gated comminity.
