Spike Lee has agreed to dish out some dough to that elderly couple in Florida whose address he published on the internet in connection with the death of Trayvon Martin.
Sure he apologized, but he thought that wasn’t quite going to cut it.
Cripes after Lee tweeted their address of the home of Elaine and David McClaine, they had to flee their home after their address was published because peeps were going cray. Their son is also named George Zimmerman, but not THE George Zimmerman.
The couple’s attorney, Matt Morgan, has now revealed that Lee has offered them compensation. Morgan says, “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. Spike has agreed to compensate the McClains for their loss and for the disruption into their lives. He’s taken full responsibility.”
AND Lee even phoned the couple and Elaine McClain was happy for the apology. “He was really kind. 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’m sure the big fat check wasn’t so bad either.
