By now we are all aware of the tragic case of Trayvon Martin.  It has been talked about on this forum extensively. 

Spike Lee recently took it upon himself to retweet, what he thought was the address of Martin's accused killer, George Zimmerman.  Instead, the address turned out to be that of an elderly couple, who have received threats as a result and have been forced to leave their own home out of fear for their personal safety.  Way to go, Spike!

I'm not sure how you all feel about this condoning of vigilante justice (ironically the same thing that got Martin wrongly killed), but Spike is a careless idiot for this one. 

Someone with Lee's status and influence should be aware of the type of impact and power his words and actions can have -- to over a quarter million followers.  To not even bother confirming if the address was correct was irresponsible and concerning, especially when we all know what the intention of spreading the rumor was; to instigate more violence. 
 

What do you think?

He did apologize and has tried to do some damage control, but that was a thoughtless move to begin with.
