Obama Fundraiser Spike Lee Finally Apologizes to Elderly Couple Terrorized by His Tweet

Spike Lee must have seen the stories about the Florida couple fleeing to a hotel and then lawyering up:

Mr. Lee thought the McClain's address belonged to George Zimmerman, the 28 year old man who fatally shot 17 year old Trayvon Martin last month (background here). In a tweet Mr. Lee wrote:

"I Deeply Apologize To The McClain Family For Retweeting Their Address.It Was A Mistake.Please Leave The McClain's In Peace.Justice In Court."

Overdue, but good. I've been pretty tough on Spike this week, and he deserved it and should pick up the tab for the McClain's hotel and security, but I'll say this: He has excellent taste in the soccer team he supports. Excellent.
