Spike Lee Sued By Elderly Couple Over George Zimmerman Tweet
Spike Lee on His Trayvon Martin Tweet: "I Did a Stupid Thing"
One month after the death of Trayvon Martin, a 17-year-old African-American high school student, director Spike Lee took to Twitter and retweeted what he thought was the home address of George Zimmerman, the man who was later tried and acquitted of Trayvon's murder. The address actually belonged to an elderly couple completely unrelated to the case. Now, Spike shares his regrets about that tweet and reveals what he's learned from his mistake.
