A Friendly Chat With Gabe And Kelly: Spike Lee Tweeted An Incorrect Address For George Zimmerman

Gabe: hey kelly
Kelly: Hey, Gabe
Gabe: how’s it going?
Gabe: JUST KIDDING NO TIME
Gabe: i need you to drop everything
Gabe: and throw your computer in the garbage
Kelly: Done.
Gabe: because we have to go to florida NOW
Gabe: Spike Lee just Tweeted the for sure correct address of George Zimmerman
Gabe: and we have to go there NOW
Gabe: FOR SOME REASON
Kelly: OH NO WAY LET’S GO TO THE HOUSE
Gabe: LET’S ALL GO THERE
Gabe: SPIKE, WHEN ARE YOU GETTING THERE, SAVE ME A PITCHFORK
Gabe: oh wait, shoot, it turns out that was totally the fake address
Gabe: fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu

Kelly: So Spike Lee tweeted an incorrect address for George Zimmerman, you’re telling me?
Gabe: yes, he’s sorry that he tweeted the wrong address
Gabe: although apparently not that sorry that he tweeted an address in the first place?
Gabe: his apology is weird because of how he doesn’t apologize for even tweeting anyone’s address in the first place
Gabe: the people who live at the address he tweeted have been harrassed and threatened
Gabe: which apparently
Gabe: as far as spike lee is concerned
Gabe: be totally FINE if only it was George Zimmerman and his loved ones
Kelly: It’s called bringing someone to justice, Gabe.
Kelly: Like if Dexter had a Twitter.
Gabe: i’m a huge fan of vigilante justice
Gabe: America knows this about me
Kelly: Sure
Gabe: but i like it mano e mano style
Gabe: no homo
Gabe: like, take care of YOUR business
Gabe: avenge YOUR sensei
Gabe: but, like, don’t bring the RABBLE into it
Kelly: DON’T just retweet an address that you assume is correct because some guy said so, with a nudge of “go to this house and harass whoever’s inside”?
Kelly: I don’t know man, to each his own I guess.
Gabe: i honestly think that tweeting someone’s address and telling thousands of people to harass and abuse that person and his/her family is not that much less worse than SHOOTING A CHILD BECAUSE OF SKITTLES AND CLOTHING
Gabe: it’s basically the same knee-jerk, reactionary, aggressive disregard for human safety and well-being
Kelly: Yes, I think you are correct
Gabe: the family who live at the address he’s tweeting
Gabe: are considering suing him
Gabe: but, like, everyone should sue him
Gabe: it’s a horrible, horrible thing to do
Kelly: Hahaha yes
Gabe: kind of unbelievably so
Gabe: there should be a class action lawsuit
Gabe: in which all of america sues
Gabe: George Zimmerman and Spike Lee for being monsters
Kelly: Now that is an idea.
Kelly: “Justice In Court.”
Kelly: That is also an incredible part of the Spike Lee apology tweet
Kelly: That he ended it with “Justice In Court.”

Gabe: HA
Gabe: HAHAHAHAAH
Gabe: haha
Gabe: AHAHAHAAH
Gabe: like
Gabe: after MUCH reflection
Gabe: he has finally decided
Gabe: that one of the bedrocks of a democratic society
Gabe: SHOULD be allowed to carry on with its work
Kelly: Right. Call off the masses currently poised to terrorize the 70-year-old couple who actually lives in that house.
Gabe: that fucking asshole
Gabe: i saw him speak one time in college
Gabe: jealous?
Gabe: that i went to college?
Kelly: No way that sounds boring
Gabe: you could go someday maybe
Gabe: Erin Brokovich style
Gabe: is that a movie about a woman who finally goes to college?
Gabe: after blogging?
Gabe: anyway, he spoke in college
Kelly: What did he say?
Gabe: and i swear he was high on cold medicine
Gabe: dude didn’t make no sense
Kelly: Oh, well I’m definitely never applying for college in that case.
Gabe: it was awful
Gabe: i was just waiting for him to actually fall completely asleep
Kelly: So you two have a history, then.
Gabe: yes
Gabe: i mean, this whole thing is just SO like him
Kelly: hahaha
Gabe: he probably took a ton of cold medicine
Gabe: and then tweeted a fake address for a man that is already reviled by America
Gabe: like, that’s the thing too
Gabe: about this
Gabe: THE WORD IS OUT ABOUT GEORGE ZIMMERMAN
Gabe: it’s the only thing anyone in the country is talking about
Kelly: Right
Gabe: that and the box office returns on The Pink Slime Games
Gabe: or whatever
Gabe: but, like, Spike Lee wasn’t finally shedding important light
Gabe: on an unheard story
Gabe: and i am sure that there are already police posted up
Gabe: outside of George Zimmerman’s house
Gabe: to protect him from angry mobs
Gabe: but then this fucking guy
Gabe: ugh
Kelly: And it wasn’t even the right address.
Kelly: Goodness gracious, Spike Lee.
Gabe: he’s a bad person
Gabe: that’s what a bad person does
Gabe: and his apology was also over twitter?
Gabe: BITCH PICK UP THE PHONE!
Kelly: And then give the people who live at that address a lot of money
Kelly: And a fancy trip

Gabe: i’ll never be able to watch Bamboozled the same way again
Kelly: I’ll never be able to hear someone say something is a “Spike Lee joint” as a joke the same way again.
Gabe: wait, who says that?
Gabe: your racist friends?
Gabe: you and your racist friends
Gabe: hanging out at the hookah bar
Kelly: Well mainly I was thinking of
Kelly: the blooper reel from Superbad
Gabe: hahahhahahahah
Kelly: HELLOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
Gabe: oh no, right, sorry
Gabe: it is weird even to me
Gabe: that the blooper reel from Superbad
Gabe: is not always on the forefront of my mind
Gabe: in order to understand jokes
Gabe: and references
Gabe: that we all make and enjoy
Kelly: Apology accepted.
Gabe: HEY EVERYBODY
Gabe: KELLY LIVES AT 227 GARBAGE PLACE
Kelly: NOOOOOOO NO NONONONONO
Gabe: GET HER!
Gabe: FIRE HER!
Gabe: PLEASE RT!
