Even after Spike Lee’s Twitter debacle, Roseanne Barr decided to tweet the correct address for the parents of George Zimmerman, the man who killed Trayvon Martin. Her move comes on the heels of Lee’s retweet of the incorrect address for Zimmerman’s parents.
Lee apologized on Wednesday to the elderly couple whose address was incorrectly tied to the Martin case. He settled with the couple after they had to flee their home.
After a bit of apprehension (Roseanne tweeted Zimmerman’s parents’ address, deleted it, and then tweeted it again), she declared: “If Zimmerman isn’t arrested I’ll rt his address again. maybe go 2 his house myself,” Barr tweeted.
The comedian has more than 100,000 followers, and many of them voiced criticism.
A follower by the name of rob b tweeted, “Apparently Roseanne Barr is even dumber than Spike Lee, tweeting the correct home address of George [Zimmerman's] parents.”
Barr justified her actions by explaining in a tweet that it “was good to let ppl know that no one can hide anymore.”
However, after some more thought, Barr said, “But vigilante-ism is what killed Trayvon. I don’t support that.”
