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.

TMZ Live has gone down hill you guys. For the last couple of weeks its like you guys are disorganized and frazzled. Whoever is producing these segments needs help. Also, get rid of the "Coming Up" bar. Its so annoying and unnecessary and leaves you less flexibility in your broadcast when things get omitted or changed. Go back to the old format when you had it together Harvey and Charles.

TMZ: google Brian McCarthy, he is the son of Marriott Hotels president who won $107 million in the Mega Millions lottery in Virginia back in September 2011

I dont think celebrities should be allowed to play the lotto! they have all the money in the world why would they want more?! leave the lotto to the people (little people) who really need it!

As a long time supporter of TMZ and supporting its growth, I am very disappointed in the current format where you keep disrespecting your web fans by ignoring us and turning off sound and worried about Sir XM etc. Please keep in mind we helped you grow.

Hmmm...yeah, and that's why Rihanna is a freakin' amazingly successful artist. And Clay Aiken is subjected to doing Celebrity Apprentice. Keep your mouth shut, has-been.

@#$% that fat correspondent in your news room,it seems his fat ass is the onyl oen who isn't up ont he details of the case, becuase what we DO know is enough to say the sh#t wasn't right, whatever the case maybe, meanwhile he's only considering race as a matter in the whole thing, I for one am tired of white people acting like police brutality on african americans is the equaivalent to a u.f.o. encoutner.

Spike Lee is a joke! His movies are crap and he is basically a mascot for the Knicks! Of course a punk wimp like him could never play any sports so he now dresses up in jereys in his 50's. I always thought he was pretty stupid but had no idea he was so dumb that he couldn't figure out there are many people in Florida with the last name Zimmeren. Spike Lee put the life of these people in danger for no reason, they should sue the ugly rat face

Is this Raquel chick serious with her views? She basically condoned violence against this other man and no problem with he views and opinions. It is totally irresponsible to say what she said, And I understand her being frustrated but such a careless statement on her point. She should lose her job today.
