He’ll be happy to pay any and all expenses, correct?

Looking at Lee a little more, I'm thinking he's really a White African-American.

This couple’s lawyer is Morgan and Morgan. Morgan and Morgan are the lawyers who Obama came to in Heathrow for a big fundraiser a while ago. They are huge ambulence chasers here in Florida. They will be all over Spike Lee....Also..Charlie Crist now works with them.

Of course..what liberals hate most is their OWN wealth taken away from them. They don’t mind Republican money being “Redistributed” but the second someone comes after their dough, they freak out. If ANY Republican had posted the address of someone and that person received death threats, the media would have been outraged(Yes Phony outrage but still outrage) but when a sleaze ball on the left does it all you hear are crickets

I think they will. WFTV said they told the media the stress is taking a huge toll on them. Cha Ching! Spike Lee is SOOOOO sorry.

They must have filed suit.

Apology doesn’t cut it when you have to hide to avoid harrassment and possibly physical harm.

“malicious, slanderous, racist bitch into the ground.”

That sir, is an insult to my Lab/Shepard mix. She demands an apology forthwith.

Talk’s cheap - reimburse them for all the money they’ve spent on hotal bills and the rest, with a nice bonus for pain and suffering - then we might believe the “apology”.....

"He probably heard the couple lawyered up and plan on suing his ass to kingdom come."

My guess is that Spike's lawyer told him that if anything happens to this couple, they will own his ass.

I doubt he gives a crap what happens to a couple of old white people. He just doesn't want to lose all his stuff over it and some lawyer finally told the dumb SOB that is exactly what would (and still could) happen.

Who thinks all his idiot Tweeter followers got the second message?

You're absolutely right. If it had been a Repub who'd posted that couple's address, he would have been arrested.

I would think he broke some law in inciting violence against Zimmerman. At the very least, Zimmerman and the elderly couple should sue the jerk. I hope Lee loses everything.

Lee's "defense" will be that the address was tweeted to him and he was just passing it along.

Yeah that defense worked so well at Nuremberg. "I was just following orders!"

I don't think that Lee can spin his way out of his clear INTENT to harm Zimmerman.

Mark my words. Even if they sue and win, their settlement won’t even approach a million dollars. The naivete on this thread is epic indeed.

Lee is in deep doo doo and he knows it, he will be lucky to keep the shirt on his back.

That's if Lee isn't "cooling his heels" in jail for a felony charge of inciting violence first....

so many "black" singers/actors etc use the wee little black blood in them to get them jobs or parts or offerings....

nothing like using the "me black" card to get you in the door...scholarships...jobs...and most of all...righteous indignation....

I agree, that is, if there is any rule of law left in this country.

Wonder how Spike would feel if his address were to be posted on the internet?
