An elderly couple in Sanford, Florida is now living in fear after multiple people including director Spike Lee incorrectly tweeted their address as that of Trayvon Martin shooter George Zimmerman, who is in hiding.
70-year-old Elaine McClain has a son named William George Zimmerman, who lived with her in 1995 and has no relation to the neighborhood watchman who shot and killed the unarmed Miami teen February 26, reports the Orlando Sentinel.
Elaine and her husband David McClain told Orlando's Local 6 that they received a letter addressed to George Zimmerman on Monday that read "taste the rainbow" in reference to the Skittles Martin was reportedly holding when he was shot.
The Sentinel reported that the McClains have since relocated to a hotel to avoid any more backlash.
