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.

Get out your fat ass check book, and pay up!!! How irresponsible of him to do that to anyone at that point. When nobody knew anything other that a white guy shot a black kid. No trial, just anger and ignorance. Now he's gonna pay the price.

Its a shame, these are probably the same prople that was happy when George Zimmerman was released. Granted Spike was wrong for giving somenes address out but dammitt people a child was just murdered and the killer set free. But dont worry GOD has it all in hand and Zimmeran will not have peace and just like OJ he will go to jail and stay, sadly it will have nothing to do with what he really did. #STUPIDASS
