The Orlando Sentinel reports that an elderly Florida couple has fled their home after Spike Lee re-tweeted their address in attempt to send mobs of people to the home of George Zimmerman — the man who shot and killed Trayvon Martin.
A school-cafeteria lunch lady and her husband have received hate mail, unwanted visits from reporters and fearful inquiries from neighbors — all because their Sanford-area address is being disseminated on Twitter as belonging to Trayvon Martin shooter George Zimmerman, her son said late Tuesday.
The woman, 70, who has a heart condition, and her husband, 72, have temporarily moved to a hotel to avoid the spotlight and possible danger, said son Chip Humble of Longwood.
The woman has another son named William George Zimmerman who lived with her in 1995 and still lives in Central Florida. He is no relation to George Zimmerman, 28, who killed 17-year-old Trayvon Feb. 26, sparking national outrage and international interest.
Here is a screenshot of Spike Lee’s two retweets
According to Twitchy.com the address was tweeted hundreds of thousands of times going viral almost in minutes and here is a sampling of the hate tweets and frenzy Spike Lee created.
The elderly couple are the latest victims of an attempt by the organized left and the mainstream media–with the blessing of Obama himself–to exploit the death of Trayvon Martin without any facts of the case to inflame political and racial divisions very likely to be ending in violence. I look forward to the mainstream media reporting this part of the Trayvon Martin case tomorrow. Yea right.
