Elderly Couple In Fear Over Spike Lee Tweet

MARCH 27--With Twitter and Facebook continuing to explode with posts purporting to contain the address of George Zimmerman, property records and interviews reveal that the home is actually the longtime residence of a married Florida couple, both in their 70s, who have no connection to the man who killed Trayvon Martin and are now living in fear due to erroneous reports about their connection to the shooter.

The mass dissemination of the address on Edgewater Circle in Sanford--the Florida city where Martin was shot to death last month--took flight last Friday when director Spike Lee retweeted a tweet containing Zimmerman’s purported address to his 240,000 followers.

The original tweet was sent to Lee (and numerous other celebrities like Will Smith, 50 Cent, and LeBron James) last Friday afternoon by Marcus Davonne Higgins, a 33-year-old Los Angeles man who uses the online handle “maccapone.” Higgins included the direction, “EVERYBODY REPOST THIS.”

Marcus should have said everyone pass this along, “Put a gun to your head and...”

OK, that’s not nice, I admit it, but these celebrity jerks are kind of pissing me off.

Then Marcus Davonne Higgins should probably seek good legal representation, as he is in very serious trouble, both criminally, and civlly...

The first time I read about Spike Lee irresponsibly posting Mr. Zimmerman’s supposed address, my first thought was what if he posts the wrong address and gets someone harassed or murdered. Shameful the way, this is being handled. The push for action should be on the judiciary not the lynch mob.

Higgins and Lee should both face multimillion dollar lawsuits for the Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress, plus the even more dangerous (and criminal act) of Criminally Negligent Behavior, for starters.

I hope that the couple get a good conservative lawyer to represent them pro bono. Then they can “Do the Right Thing”, i.e. sue the bastards.

Let’s teach the leftist and racist bastards that this kind of irresponsible behavior is going to cost them big time.

That elderly couple has a nice lawsuit that she can file against Spike Lee(Who is a mega douche bag) posting someone’s address for the sole purpose of having them harmed or killed should be a felony, period! Spike knew EXACTLY what he was doing by posting that address, he wanted his idiot followers to go and harm Zimmerman. Someone should post Spike’s address and see how he likes it, he’s a scum bag!

That elderly couple should really be afraid.

Look what happened to that elderly couple in Oklahoma recently.

Sounds to me like they ought to suit the parachute pants off Spike. Then tweet his address:

Refrigerator Box Under the Santa Monica Overpass
Within smelling distance of the beach
California 00000

I would suggest to the couple that they arm up and go to the range a couple of times a week!

That is slam dunk litigation. I would like to see this couple walk away with a few million of Lee’s dollars.

He is a viscious antisemite, even as self hating Jews clean up his incompetent film skills into intelligible movies.

Considering the the Black Pansie Party has offered a bounty for Zimmerman, this should be a criminal charge for anyone who posted said address

It would be better to go after Spike Lee since he, most likely, has deeper pockets. In any case, if anything happens to the elderly couple Higgins and Lee are both, legally, accomplices to a crime.

While I don't disagree, in principle, it might be somewhat harder to prevail against Lee, legally. I'm sure he has excellent lawyers to shield him from the legal consequences of his own folly. Nailing Higgins *first* could make it easier for Lee to cut a deal, where they would get something...

That’s a fact. I’d call him up and say “do be a dear and send me the measurements for the curtains in your house. I’m sure they’ll need to be changed when I move in”.
