Would a conservative face charges in a like case?

The ONLY reason why he is apologizing now is because he was about to get sued. The McClain family had hired an attorney to sue Spike Lee, now very convenient for him that he decided to apologize now. Guess he was afraid his wealth was going to be taken away from him

But he didn't apologize for tweeting an address he though was Zimmerman's, presumably to that he can be harmed. He apologized for tweeting the wrong address.

This mistake was known for the last couple of days and he apologizes now? He probably heard the couple lawyered up and plan on suing his ass to kingdom come. This delay will be noted in court - if in fact it did just come out, I don’t do twitter so I can’t tell.

Sometimes, loser, saying "I'm sorry" Just doesn't cut it.
Only total idiots have need for that ploy.

but it was also on twitter hours ago, the attorney has his own twitter account and he said he was representing the family. I hope they decide to go through with this lawsuit. This phony apology by Lee is only so that he can keep his millions, he was adamant about not apologizing this morning, but the second he heard about the McClains getting a lawyer he quickly had to say he was sorry

I’d still sue his a$$ off.

Can you imagine the terror this poor couple was in?

Money won’t return their peace of mind, but it’s a great way to start.

Memo to Spike Lee:

Stay out of things of which you have no knowledge, As a matter of fact, the world would be a better place if you would just go away and shut up.

I’m sure the fact that the elderly couples whose home life Spikey destroyed getting a lawyer had nothing to do with it

Too late. You had NO RIGHT to tweet ANYBODY’S address—an invitation to harm! You are a NO-class PUNK! Now you get to lie in the bed you made!

I hope they make an example out of him!

I sure hope they sue Lee. This is bad whichever way it’s turned, both the stupid mistake of listing a wrong address plus the hate crime of listing an address in hopes that harm comes to the person. Spike Lee has lost any sense of responsibility he might have gained over the years. Put a hoody on him.

I think right now would be an interesting time to demand that he apologize to Mr. Zimmerman as well.

I think he will have to buy the home at a minimum, there is no way that couple will ever feel comfortable living there again, and, likely the house won’t sell either with the history it now has.

Its a slam dunk case, there is much damage done to property and people, and a shark law firm which stands to make a lot of money on the case is represting the homeowners. Lee is in deep doo doo and he knows it, he will be lucky to keep the shirt on his back.

Revealing a person’s address is like putting out a hit on them. It is intended to cause fright and to incite unstable people to harass or commit violent acts against the targeted person.

An apology is step one, although taking the Fluker’s lead - apology not accepted.

Step two is forking over AT LEAST $100,000,000. I cannot imagine the depth of that nice couple’s suffering.

Typical bully behavior. The second someone smacks back, a bully backs down and that's what happened here. Evidently big man Spike is nothing but a bully.
