Spike Lee Settles With Sanford Couple for Retweeting Wrong Zimmerman Address

SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — An elderly couple who reported being forced to leave their Florida home when a Twitter posting that Spike Lee helped spread listed their address as that of the man who shot an unarmed teen has settled with the director.

The couple’s attorney, Matt Morgan, announced the settlement Thursday. Morgan says Lee called them to apologize fo retweeting their address. Details of the settlement 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 protests around the country because Zimmerman was not arrested. He says he acted in self-defense.
