Spike Lee Sued

You Did NOT Do the Right Thing

In George Zimmerman Case

11/11/2013 6:58 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1111-spike-lee-01
Spike Lee was so blinded by rage over George Zimmerman's shooting of Trayvon Martin ... he tweeted the address of an elderly couple, believing it was Zimmerman's ... and they claim Spike put their lives in grave danger.

David and Elaine McClain claim in a new lawsuit Lee was so filled with hate he got the wrong address and carelessly threw it up online ... just days after the shooting.

In the lawsuit ... the McClains say they received numerous death threats and hate mail ... and feared for their lives as their address was re-Tweeted countless times.

The McClains say Lee's Tweet of their address encouraged "a dangerous mob mentality."  Now they want a lot more for their troubles and grief.

This is awful. This couple has every right to sue his as* off ! While I hate George Zimmerman and think he should 100% be in prison OR WORSE. This racist idiot should have AT LEAST made sure he was giving the world the right address !

What I find interesting is that Spike Lee has already "PAID" the McClains for their "INCONVENIENCES" caused by his "ARROGANT STUPIDITY"!!! They weren't "PHYSICALLY HARMED" -- JUST "INCONVENIENCED"!!! I'm not a Spike Lee fan but he's already arranged to pay the McClain's a "FINANCIAL SETTLEMENT" and shouldn't have to "REVISIT THIS ISSUE", AGAIN!!!

GOOD FOR THEM.
Ol by the way for all the george haters the STAND YOUR GROUND LAW was NOT used as a defense.He claimed self defense. He was ASSAULTED FIRST by the thug martin.So the parents are running around with the NAACP to fight stand your ground law.lol a joke.And why should i have to retreat if i am in a place with the right to be there and not doing anything.FUCCCCKKKKKKKING democrats.

The people that hate the law stand your ground better rethink it.What if you were trying to protect your family with a knife not a gun and couldn't retreat.Yea

Spike has no defense… none. He WANTED the people at the address he gave out to be harmed, or else why do it? This elderly couple had their lives put in grave danger by Lee's deliberate and ignorant act. If he has a brain in his head he'll pay out now, big time, before a jury does it for him.

Pure racism. If the Martins would have been black, Lee wouldn't have given out the address. (I don't really believe it's racism but I figure that it's time for white people to start crying racism every time a black does something against them.)

Why didn't he go to Zimmerman's house himself. Oh right, he wanted the " Black Man" to stand up for himself and attack Zimmerman, so the "Black Man" can get arrested. Then he can complain about Police brutality against, said "Black Man" and how the Prison System is holding down the "Black Man".

It was a dirt bag move and he should be held 100% accountable. May they take him to the cleaners. There is no excuse for this kind of stupidity, no matter self important the guy is.

He should be taken in for attempted murder. Even though He would have not been there, he was the reason those people would have died!
