A bad re-tweet

View Comments

Filmmaker Spike Lee re-tweeted the address of a George Zimmerman in Sanford, Florida, that contained the message “Feel free to reach out and touch him.” Problem:It’s not the home of the George Zimmerman involved in the Trayvon Martin case.

The home belongs to an elderly couple, named the McClains, who have since moved to a nearby hotel to avoid the numerous people showing up at their door and threatening the couple.

The original tweet of the wrong address came from a Los Angeles man, who also held a sign at a rally last week containing the wrong phone number and address for George Zimmerman.

Zimmerman has never lived at the address that was tweeted out.
