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. Elaine and David McClain are in their 70s and say they have a son named William George Zimmerman, who lived in their Sanford area home in the mid-1990s. They say he is no relation to 28-year-old George Zimmerman, who killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin on Feb. 26.
Love this bitch. “We really weren’t looking for any compensation. Just wanted to be able to go back home.” So I guess that’s why you lawyered up then right? Because that’s what people not looking for compensation always do. They hire lawyers to not get them compensation.. Don’t get me wrong I ain’t mad at these old timers. This is exactly how I would have handled the situation if I were them. Seriously I wish some celebrity would tweet that George Zimmerman lived with me. That’s like hitting the lottery. It honestly can’t better than that. The only thing I’d do differently is probably fire a couple rounds into the side of my house for effect. I’d be sitting in Spikes seats courtside for the next decade wearing “Wish You Were Here Spike” tshirts.
