The Cricket's Daily 3: Spike Lee does the wrong thing

Here's what's happening today in pop culture:

• Filmmaker Spike Lee is in trouble with Twitter, after retweeting an address for a George Zimmerman -- but not the George Zimmerman at the center of the shooting death of teen Trayvon Martin -- leading to a couple in their 70s being harassed with hate mail and media questions. Posting a personal address also violates Twitter's content rules. [CBS News]

• Earl Scruggs, the pioneering bluegrass performer whose banjo playing became world-famous thanks to "The Ballad of Jed Clampett" and the "Bonnie and Clyde" soundtrack (among many other works), has died at the age of 88 in Nashville. [The Tennessean]

• Stay classy, America! "Anchorman 2" is happening, says Will Ferrell -- who announced it on "Conan" in character as Ron Burgundy. [Washington Post]
