Spike Lee Re-Tweets Incorrect George Zimmerman Address; Elderly Couple Forced to Flee Home

by at . Comments

After director Spike Lee erroneously re-Tweeted their address as belonging to Trayvon Martin killer George Zimmerman, a school-cafeteria lunch lady and her husband were essentially forced to flee their home amid unwanted attention.

Death threats, hate mail, swarming reporters and fearful inquiries from neighbors were all too much for the woman, 70, who has a heart condition, and her husband, 72, who temporarily moved to a hotel to avoid the spotlight and possible danger.

According to reports, the confusion arose because the woman has a son, William George Zimmerman, who lived with her in 1995 and still lives in Central Florida.

He is no relation to George Zimmerman, 28, the un-charged shooter in the Trayvon Martin case, which is sparking national outrage and international interest.

Zimmerman traced the tweet - which did not initially come from Spike Lee, but gained massive interest after Lee re-Tweeted it - to a man in California.

Zimmerman said he has implored the man to stop and said he received this response, "Black power all day. No justice, no peace" and an obscenity.

Lee's tweet has been removed, but it continues to be re-tweeted.

Man. Spike hasn't flown off the handle and wished he could take it back this badly since his taunting of Reggie Miller sparked the Pacers guard's 25-point fourth quarter explosion in Game 5 of the 1994 Eastern Conference Finals.

The lunchroom lady should get a 12ga shotgun and then ask the question, did I fire 5 or 6.

Spike Lee is a racist asshole who needs to sit down and shut up. Same for Sharpton and Jackson. Bunch of troublemakers with big fat mouths.

This is exactly what happens when people take matters into their own hands. He had no business tweeting anybody's address. People want to shout for the right to this and the right to that. What about the right to be safe in your own home. Zimmerman never should have gotten out of his car. Lee never should have tweeted any address. Two wrongs only make a huge mess.

@Tuff shit,What do mean that black people don't know how to conduct ourselves? Dude look at you all comments! You make me and other's to come out this way for us to say hateful words. Put it this way, i don't hate you, but i don't like your crazy ass comments. I don't have nothing against you or better yet, I feel sorry for you and the other racist fools. What do you all do all day, find a black person on the internet to insult them?

@ just me.... Go ahead break it dwn what am i about??? Also one mre point i really really dislike my gov. Rick scott who is a teapublican. I have seen up close what his elk is all about and i dnt much care for it. His approval rating is so low its a joke... I dnt go around making sure a person has a 'd' at the end of their name before i say im on their side. I was never predisposed to like a certain party. I just started listening to what actually came out of their mouths and i wont apologize for making opinions based on that. After i seen how low teachers rated on their richter scale i was sick! And i blame the tea party! They have made repubs move so right its apalling. They have fuked up the repub party not made one damn thing better at all. They want divide and as i have said before all u need to do is look to congress to see this sick game these ppl are playing with our lives.
