Spike Lee

From NRO:

A couple in Sanford, Fla. has sued director Spike Lee for mistakenly tweeting their home address as George Zimmerman’s during the height of the investigation of the death of Trayvon Martin. Lee sent the tweet to his 240,000 followers in February 2012.

Even though Lee apologized over Twitter and settled, the lawsuit contends that Elaine and David McClain have continued to be the victims of harassment and hate mail, which forced them to temporarily move out. The elderly couple is seeking more than $15,000 for “substantial injury,” and reserves the right to seek punitive damages as well.
Do you think Spike Lee is aware that he was possibly helping to facilitate a murder? What do you think would have happened if he had publicized the right address? Would he have realized his contribution in the event that a fire bomb was thrown?

I understand that he's embarrassed to have put innocent people through this unwarranted harassment, but would he have been ok with it if he had only gotten the address right?

It was a stupid and irresponsible thing to do, correct address or no.

But it's typical of the Michael Moores and the Spike Lees and others of the Left.

Sure, he'd be fine with himself.Just collateral damage in the war on America he's been waging for decades.
