Bungle Fever: Spike Lee Apologizes for Trying to Send Angry Mob to Attack the Wrong People

Eh, I still hope the couple sues him… or at the very least sends him a hefty bill for their hotel room, all expenses, and a whopper of an emotional distress invoice:

Brooklyn movie director Spike Lee apologized Wednesday for retweeting the address of an elderly Florida couple he thought belonged to the man who shot and killed an unarmed black teen.

The outspoken “Do The Right Thing” filmmaker forwarded the address thinking it belonged to George Zimmerman, the volunteer neighborhood watchman who shot and killed Trayvon Martin last month.

The Sanford, Fla. address actually belongs David and Elaine McClain, public school employees both in their 70s who have nothing to do with the tragedy, thesmokinggun.com reports.

“I Deeply Apologize To The McClain Family For Retweeting Their Address,” Lee tweeted Wednesday. “It Was A Mistake.Please Leave The McClain’s In Peace.Justice In Court.”

“Justice in court”… or via street mob if somebody would only give Spike Zimmerman’s correct address.

Lee could show how sorry he is by putting his Tweets on a roll of this and sending it to the McClains so they can put them to good use.

Update: Yeah, it looks like the couple is preparing to sue him.
