As the Trayvon Martin controversy continues, Jon Stewart fussed at filmmaker Spike Lee for retweeting the address of what was believed to be Martin’s shooter, George Zimmerman.

But, it was actually the address of an elderly couple, Elaine and David McClain!

“Yes, sending a lynch mob to the wrong address is a bad mistake,” Stewart said. “I gotta say, even if it was the right address, that’s still a bad mistake. Sending a lynch mob to anybody’s address is a bad mistake.”

Stewart urged Lee, 55, to “leave the cyber-bullying to teenagers,” and said that his behavior was as “immature as stealing Sally Jesse Raphael’s glasses”.

Jon was glad that Spike had issued an apology to the McClains on Twitter, but felt other ways would be more appropriate.

“Hold up a sign at a Knicks game, or call them. That’s what they really want. That’s all any Florida retiree really wants. Pick up the phone and call them. And then, help them move.”

Jon Stewart scolds Spike Lee over bully tweet:

Lee tweeted an apology, writing, “I Deeply Apologize To The McClain Family For Retweeting Their Address. It Was A Mistake. Please Leave The McClain’s In Peace. Justice In Court.”

Spike also phoned the couple to apologize. “He was really kind,” Elaine said, “And when he called us, you could just tell he really felt bad about it. And it was just a slip, and I just know that he really, really has been concerned.”
