George Zimmerman, who is best known as Trayvon Martin’s killer, might have a heap of new troubles on his hands as his address was published (multiple times) via Twitter yesterday.
On March 23rd, a person who goes by the name Marcus D. Higgins (Twitter handle: @MACCAPONE) took it upon himself to post George Zimmerman’s home address and phone number several dozen times on Twitter. He not only posted it so his followers could see it, he sent it to various celebrities in hopes that they would share the information with their followers too. Several screenshots of him doing this can be found here. So far, we know of at least one celebrity who decided to go ahead and pass Zimmerman’s address on to their followers. That celebrity is Spike Lee.
It’s interesting that Spike Lee would post this despite knowing that The New Black Panthers have a $10,000
reward bounty out for the “capture and arrest” of George Zimmerman. Even a casual glance at Mr. Lee’s timeline could tell you that he has spent hours upon hours over the last week thinking about and discussing Trayvon Martin’s tragic death. He should be well aware that there are thousands of people (egged on by the media, no less) who would be willing to take “justice” into their own hands and harm George Zimmerman. If that happens, blood will be on Spike Lee’s hands too, and he will have participated in the same kind vigilantism that he has so loudly spoken out against.
