"I Deeply Apologize To The McClain Family For Retweeting Their Address," tweeted the director. "It Was A Mistake.Please Leave The McClain's In Peace.Justice In Court"
Last weekend, Lee retweeted an address to his 250,000 followers, believing it to be the home of George Zimmerman. The address was actually the home of David and Elaine McClain, an elderly Florida couple with no connection to the highly publicized case.
The McClains had to leave their home for a hotel after they received several threats from strangers. Lee himself was subjected to many racially charged responses after his mistake.
TMZ claims that Lee's apology came shortly after the couple hired a lawyer.
