VIDEO: Spike Lee settles with couple for retweeting their address

March 29, 2012

Elaine and David McClain have settled with Spike Lee after Lee tweeted out their address on Twitter.  

Spike Lee looked up George Zimmerman's address and tweeted it out and the McClain's have a son named William George Zimmerman who used to live with them but it is not the same man.

Check out a video of the McClains describing their ordeal:

 

Do you think it was fair for Spike Lee to tweet out someone's address on Twitter even if he thought a murder suspect lived there?

What would you do if your house became the center of a media circus?

Would you react that same way the McClain's did?
