Spike Lee settles for retweeting wrong address
 
Evidently Spike knows how to act like a man when he screws up.

Quote:

SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — An elderly couple has reached a settlement with Spike Lee after the pair said they had to leave their Florida home after the director help spread a Twitter posting listing their address as that of the man who shot an unarmed teen.

The couple's attorney, Matt Morgan, announced the settlement Thursday. Morgan says Lee called them to apologize for retweeting their address. Specifics of the settlement weren't disclosed.
Quote:

"At this point in time, we have come to an agreement with Spike Lee and his attorneys, and at this point, the matter is fully resolved," Morgan said. "Spike has agreed to compensate the McClains for their loss and for the disruption into their lives. He's taken full responsibility."

Lee tweeted late Wednesday: "I Deeply Apologize To The McClain Family For Retweeting Their Address. It Was A Mistake. Please Leave The McClain's In Peace."

Morgan added that Lee also called the McClains to apologize personally.
"He was really kind," Elaine McClain said. "And when he called us, you could just tell he really felt bad about it. And it was just a slip, and I just know that he really, really has been concerned."

I hate to be a wet blanket...
(okay. I actually really love it :redface )
... but I can't help but wonder if he is remorseful for tweeting the WRONG address, or if he is remorseful for tweeting an address when he shouldn't have tweeted ANY address.

Spikey had better wear some Depends for a while. If anything happens to the couple because some psycho decided to "reach out and touch them", ---

Point taken. I agree that he never should have tweeted any address.

I just think he deserves some credit for not dragging these people through the courts for years. There are those who would have just denied any culpability and refused to pay anything until a court ordered them to.

I don't really think you're "wondering" about that...I think you DO have an answer...:yes
