Elderly couple forced to flee their home after Spike Lee tweets WRONG address for Trayvon Martin's killer George Zimmerman

An elderly couple with health problems have become targets of hate mail and were at risk of attacks after Spike Lee wrongly identified their home as that of Trayvon Martin's shooter George Zimmerman.
The school-cafeteria lunch lady, 70, and her 72-year-old husband have received repeated visits from reporters and neighbours after their address was posted on Twitter.

The man and his wife, who has heart problems, have relocated to a hotel to avoid further trouble.

The confusion appeared to have arisen as the woman's son is called William George Zimmerman. He briefly lived with her in 1995 and still lives in Florida.

Director Spike Lee has been accused of accelerating racial tensions as he retweeted the mistaken address to his 250,000 followers

Lee, meanwhile, faced considerable backlash for the retweeting of the alleged whereabouts of Zimmerman, who has an outstanding $10,000 bounty on him by the New Black Panthers. The post has since been removed from Lee's Twitter account.

The elderly couple haVe no relation to George Zimmerman who shot unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin, 17, while on neighbourhood watch patrol in a Florida gated community last month.

Zimmerman was never arrested after claiming to have killed the teenager in self-defense. The case has sparked outrage across the country and roiled race relations.

The couple's son William Zimmerman told the Orlando Sentinel: 'It's scary because there are people who aren't mentally right and will take this information and run with it.'
According to the Sentinel, Mr Zimmerman traced the messages to California and asked the Twitter user to take down his parents' address - but his request was brusquely denied.

Social media surrounding the Trayvon Martin case has reached a point of near-hysteria - including a fake Will Smith tweet to be reposted thousands of times.
The alleged tweet read: 'WE live in America where a girl that threw flour on Kim Kardashian was arrested on site. But the man who KILLED Trayvon Martin is still free.'

Bad feeling? How about the riot and the store destroyed during the protest? I guess any excuse to act like an animal is o.k. This is going to be like the Rodney King situation but worse.

It truly is sad how this has gone down. I don't think it will be the end of the world!! Rodney King!! Wilding in the streets nation wide. Face it everyone is a racist to an extent. Some more extreme than others. And some just hide it well... IMO

BTW Spike Lee is a Di%k of putting out that address. Someone should give out his address.

few things...

1 spike lee is a a-hole....would sill be a a-hole if he was white, yellow, blue or red...

2 he really has 250,000 followers? really?

3 I really hope the couple sues the poop out of that racist idiot....

4 I might have said this one already but spike lee is a a-hole.

ps I though they usually only through the race card when its a white guy doing the shooting...isn't Zimmerman Hispanic? and don't they have numerous witnesses saying he was punched by Trayvon?
