Spike Lee has apologized to a Florida couple who say they were forced to leave their home when a Twitter posting that the director helped spread listed their address as that of a man who shot an unarmed teenager.

Spike Lee, along with Al Sharpton, is a race baiting thug and are both a threat to domestic tranquility. The two of them deserve nothing less than at least having the dogshit kicked out of them.

Agreed. and if, that is IF, Zimmerman is found to be innocent in all this, I hope he sues these people for all they have.

What if a "lynch mob" had burned down this house killing these people?? Or even better, what if these folks, fearing for thier lives, opened fire killing more people and escalating the entire tragedy?? Spike's an idiot.

The people hired a attorney . Let's hope Spike has to do more then apologize. Spike is all about promoting hate between the races. Ths time his sick self could have caused someone injury or their life, it still could happen if those nuts out there refuse to believe these people aren't the ones they want.

The unarmed teenage was a gang banger who protruded his lower lip (as bangers do on CD covers) while attacking Mr. Zimmerman.

Blacks, like anyone else, need to realize that when they are the aggressors, they may pay the ultimate price.

Spike is just another gang banger.

I see he finally apologized, however, it's due to media coverage not his racist beliefs. I don't see that he's offered any financial assistance to the elderly couple......cheap skate!

Anyone who doesn't realize by now what an idiot Spike Lee is should not be allowed to vote. They should also have a competency hearing to determine if they should be allowed to live on their own.

But lowlifes will always listen to lowlifes, I suppose.

Sure he apologized but so what the harm was already done. Think maybe that was his plan from the beginning?

I went outside to check on him and then the garbage man collected my trash! The phone rang and and squirrel came to my door to see if my eggs were past due! HOT DOGS

Spike Lee is just a carnival side-show. That he's tried to stir up a mob for a good old-fashioned lynching is no surprise.

What's REALLY disappointing was Obama, the Hater-in-Chief. Can you imagine the outrage if Bush (or even Clinton) had said that a crime victim deserves special attention because "if I had a son, that's who he'd look like"?[he's MY race!]

Translation: because Trayvon is of the same race as obama, he'll give special consideration to this case. Obama is living down to the worst fears of non-black America: that he cannot remain impartial or act as if he's the President of ALL races.

We elected a immature, inexeperienced rabble-rouser who cannot think long-term.

PS - It does appear that Trayvon was the victim of a self-appointed wannabe cop armed with a gun and patroling around looking for trouble. HOWEVER - all the facts are not in yet. Unlike Spike Lee and Obama, I'm not ready to whip the mob into a frezy of racial hatred.

Should this be considered a terrorist threat targeted to this couple? Does Spike Lee have that much hate in him to see an elderly and innocent white married couple hurt or murdered? You see what happens. A small but tragic event turns into a dangerous circus over nothing but what regional or local. If there was any racist component to it then it should have been dealt with in a civil and private way by the parties involved. You better vote like your lives depend on it come November. Especially with many of you losing much of your meager wealth accumulated over your working years. Remember there is strength in numbers.

I do not like spike lee he is a racist,what he did was so stupid,it also took him a few days before he even could own up to his mistake.
I think he only put out that, i am sorry cause he HAD to.
We all need to take a long deep breath and let the cops do what they should have done right from the get go,detain this man and question the events of that night, then put it to the courts to take it further.
This never would have become the media circus it has, if the cops had gone through the proper process from the very beginning.
