Just days after Spike Lee’s racially-charged temper tantrum, someone spray painted “Do the Right Thing” on the home of Brooklyn resident Dianne Mackenzie who lives next door to where Spike Lee grew up. “Do The Right Thing” is the title of a movie Spike Lee directed in 1989.
Spike Lee’s half brother Arnold Lee said, “I think Spike needs to stop with whatever situation he was talking about over here, because he doesn’t live here and he’s not involved in it.”
As writer Errol Louis notes, Spike Lee, like the good, petulant hypocrite he is, marketed Brooklyn property, sold it at higher prices, cashed out, moved to the Upper East Side, and now feigns acrimony about the same phenomenon of gentrification he made money off of.
Worse still, it’s innocent people who have to clean up the mess Spike Lee made.
