*The elderly couple who said they were forced to leave their Florida home after Spike Lee re-tweeted their address as that of the man who shot Trayvon Martin has reached some kind of settlement with the filmmaker – details of which were not disclosed.
The couple’s attorney, Matt Morgan, announced the settlement Thursday, as the couple – Elaine and David McClain, did an interview with their local Fox affiliate. Morgan also says Lee called them to apologize for retweeting their address.
The McClains 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.
Meanwhile, Jon Stewart took on Spike’s retweeting fiasco during a segment on the “Daily Show” Thursday night. Watch below. [Fast forward to 2:08]
