Spike Lee Tweets Wrong George Zimmerman Address: Couple Forced to Leave Home – Black Power All Day – No Justice – No Peace: Hey Spike I’ve Never Hung Anyone From a Tree!

Spike Lee retweeted an incorrect address for George M. Zimmerman in Sanford, Florida. George M. Zimmerman is the man involved in the Neighborhood Watch shooting of Trayvon Martin. The address Lee reTweeted identified George W. Zimmerman or W. George Zimmerman. The Zimmerman with the

Spike Lee

“W” in his name is on the property records. His mother and step-father have lived in the home for about 10 years. The Zimmerman with the “W.” in his name is shown on the voter records he used in 1995. “W” has not lived at the address for seven years. The Zimmerman with the “W” in his name, tweeted a plea to whomever actually Tweeted the wrong address, but 13 hours ago (it’s 11:15 am CDT this minute) Higgins Tweeted this: (See an UPDATE below)



Fox News is reporting that “W” pled with Higgins and received the following reply. In Higgins Tweet stream, I do not see the plea, although I don’t know “W’s” Twitter handle. I do see Higgins Tweeting a combination of these words:

“Black power all day. No justice, no peace” along with an obscenity.

“This is really scary, and I’m concerned for my family,” William Zimmerman said. “It’s scary because there are people who aren’t mentally right and will take this information and run with it. Source: Fox News

Twitchy.com, this morning at 7:29 am, said Lee has not removed his Tweet, although others are reporting it has been removed. It’s a long and ugly Tweet stream, but I don’t see it there. “Black Power” is Tweeted over and over.

The original Tweet, allegedly from Marcus Davon Higgins and allegedly posted to his Facebook page had this remark:  “Feel Free to Reach Out and Touch Him.” Higgins also held up a sign at a rally with the incorrect address and a phone number, and repeatedly identified the address as the home of “George W. Zimmerman.” The residents of the home were forced to move to a hotel for their own safety.

A loud apology from Spike Lee is in order, as well as payment of the home owners expenses and some for the discomfort of being identified with a shooting. Lee should get down to Sanford and tell the crowds outside the home to move on. Something is very, very wrong when high-profile personalities are mimicking the New Black Panther call for an army of 10,000 Black men to hunt down George M. Zimmerman. “Feel Free to Reach Out and Touch Him.” If that’s not a threat, I don’t know what is.  Read more at The Smoking Gun.

UPDATE 3-29-12: Spike Lee has apologized to the McClain’s, the people at the address that was retweeted. Now if he will pay their expenses, it will be a very good thing:

Lee apologized in a tweet sent late Wednesday: “I Deeply Apologize To The McClain Family For Retweeting Their Address. It Was A Mistake. Please Leave The McClain’s In Peace.”

  • Spike Lee has my vote for the biggest coward of the year.

  • I am sure that Spike Lee will change his tune when he is dragged into a Florida court and sued for millions by this couple.

    I am sure that Spike Lee and the majority of the Black community will scream that this is a high-tech lynching. They should be lucky. 75 years ago they would have experienced a low-tech lynching. Hemp rope and all!

  • Spike Lee needs his a$$ kicked for such stupidity. He should be sued and then some. Who is surprised at this kind of sh%$#@??? WTF is this going to do to get any kind of justice done, Just like a bunch of . . . .fools. Things were peaceful for a change until Obambi took office. Obama has done nothing but stir up trouble and hatred. Thanks for nothing BHO!

    Spike Lee is a Jigaboo

    • And the Jigs up – with BHO as well. I’m with the Marine that says Obama is an economic and religous enemy of the State. That Marine has it right.
      No bowing to these Muslims, mosques are every where. Why? They should all be bombed to the ground and these evil Godless jerks sent back to their home land, Islam. These burqa wearing bitches have to go! Got a friend that said if he catches one out, he’d tear that crap off her and choke her with the nasty stuff. We all need to send them to Allah so fast, it would make their head swim.
