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.

    "David and Elaine McClain, public school employees both in their 70s"

    Or will just any white folks do? Sheesh, sounds like Jerry Seinfeld's folks down at the Boca Vista Condominiums. Morty! Morty! What did you SAY at the home owner's assoc. meeting!?

    Lee should be arrested for inciting to riot.
    Mr. & Mrs. McClain should sue him for everything he's got… and then some.

    I hope they do sue him and take every last penny he has. It is high time that the Hollywood types learn that actions have consequences.

    Figure out what Lee is worth and sue for at least 10 times that amount. They might stand to get a 10th of it ! And I hope the McClains are able to move to some place safe in the mean time !

    I read that Lee has settled with the McClains. They seem pleased with the settlement that apparently covers their inconvenience.
