Spike Lee Tweets Wrong Address
SANFORD, Fla. (AP) - An elderly couple has reached a settlement with Spike Lee after the pair said they had to leave their Florida home after the director help spread a Twitter posting listing their address as that of the man who shot an unarmed teen.
The couple's attorney, Matt Morgan, announced the settlement Thursday.
Morgan says Lee called them to apologize for retweeting their address.
Settlement details weren't disclosed.
Elaine and David McClain are in their 70s and say they have a son named William George Zimmerman, who lived in their Sanford area home in the mid-1990s.
They say he is no relation to 28-year-old George Zimmerman, who killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin on Feb. 26.
The killing touched off widespread protests because Zimmerman was not arrested. He says he acted in self-defense.
