Spike Lee Tweets Wrong Address For Zimmerman Elderly Couple Now Experiencing Mo’ Better Blues

March 28, 2012

With Twitter and Facebook continuing to explode with posts purporting to contain the address of George Zimmerman, property records and interviews reveal that the home is actually the longtime residence of a married Florida couple, both in their 70s, who have no connection to the man who killed Trayvon Martin and are now living in fear due to erroneous reports about their connection to the shooter.

The mass dissemination of the address on Edgewater Circle in Sanford–the Florida city where Martin was shot to death last month–took flight last Friday when director Spike Lee retweeted a tweet containing Zimmerman’s purported address to his 240,000 followers.

Spike Lee loose with the facts, while using artistic license, ignites passion while  tweeting wrong address for George Zimmerman, putting Florida elderly couple at risk.
