An elderly Florida couple has reached a settlement with Director Spike Lee after the pair said they had to flee their Florida home following a Twitter posting, by Lee listing their address as that of the man who shot an unarmed teen.

The couple’s attorney Matt Morgan, says Lee called them to apologize for the mistake. Specifics of the settlement weren’t disclosed.

The couple, Elaine and David McClain are in their 70s and say they have a son named William George Zimmerman, who lived with them in the mid-1990s. He, apparently is no relation to 28-year-old George Zimmerman, who killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin on Feb. 26.

Lee tweeted late Wednesday: “I Deeply Apologize To The McClain Family For Retweeting Their Address. It Was A Mistake. Please Leave The McClain’s In Peace.”

Lee also called the McClains to apologize personally.

“He was really kind,” Elaine McClain 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.”
