In what reads like an act of retaliation against Spike Lee’s infamous gentrification rant, vandals sprayed “Do The Right Thing” several times on the house next door to Lee’s old home in Ft. Greene, Brooklyn. The current homeowner, who also had his windows broken, thinks the culprits were targeting the house next door, where Lee’s father currently lives.
Lee has not made a statement about the vandalism, but his brother, Arnold Lee, has:
“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. Don’t make it personal. That way somebody knows where you live. My friend got her house damaged and somebody spray painted our house,” Lee said.
Investigators are currently trying to figure out if his speech did in fact cause the vandalism.
