If this is all Spike Lee has to say about Juan Luis Garcia’s allegations, then I’m not sure I have anything else to say about Spike Lee.
I Never Heard Of This Guy Juan Luis Garcia,If He Has A Beef It’s Not With Me.I Did Not Hire Him,Do Not Know Him.Cheap Trick Writing To Me.YO

Maybe somebody who can teach him how to handle his own PR a little better will have something more to say.
UPDATE: The responses to the tweet are growing and growing and growing…
@SpikeLee he has a beef with somebody who works for you, obviously, and that is your problem

@SpikeLee Or it might be the last resort of a desperate man? Could be BS, but surely worth a call or two, given it's your movie?
— Nev Pierce (@nevpierce) November 28, 2013
@SpikeLee Why is it a trick if he's appealing to you to help preserve the integrity of his art?
— Rebecca Carroll (@rebel19) November 28, 2013
@SpikeLee That kind of treatment is not unfamiliar to hundreds of thousand of creatives across the world. You may not see it, but we do…
— Dave Holloway (@DaveMedlo) November 28, 2013
@SpikeLee Yeah, … too bad he thought you'd care about fellow artitsts being ripped off. What an idiot!
— Bud Collyer (@BudCollyer) November 28, 2013
.@SpikeLee I think it's pretty clear his beef is with the ad agency and that he would like your support, no?
— Judes Dickey (@judes_dickey) November 28, 2013
@SpikeLee whether you wanted it or not, now you know and if you don’t act you are as guilty as that scumbag of agency.

. @SpikeLee Ultimately you're the captain of that ship. Look into it, or look stupid. Your pick!

@SpikeLee As a big fan of your work – and an underpaid freelancer – just wanted to register my huge disappointment at your response here.
— Ashley Clark (@_Ash_Clark) November 28, 2013
.@SpikeLee's twitter response to the slighted artist who asked for his support is just as mean-spirited and uncaring as I'd expect from him.
— Ted Geoghegan (@tedgeoghegan) November 28, 2013
@SpikeLee The fact that you refuse to do anything about this is sickening.
— mackbateman (@8bitheroics) November 28, 2013
@SpikeLee Love your films but a very poor response.Could've at least offered to investigate.If cheap trick, call him out. If not, sort it
— Graham Gardiner (@grahamgardiner) November 28, 2013
@tedgeoghegan I tend to agree. Didn’t Lee publish this guy’s unpaid work to his own blog? If so, what’s wrong w/letting him know the story?
— Rodney Perkins (@rodneydp) November 28, 2013
@SpikeLee what a gross response
— Walter Green (@waltergreens) November 28, 2013
— Cris McLean (@wheresmclean) November 28, 2013
@SpikeLee so that's it? The integrity of an artist means nothing to you? Imagine where you'd be if everyone thought that way!
— Ezequiel Gutierrez (@ezgoo) November 28, 2013
@SpikeLee if you're using his work and he wasn't paid, it's your problem. Smart pr is to fire the firm and pay directly. And the right thing
— Charlie Crystle (@Ccrystle) November 28, 2013
.@SpikeLee but it is possible he has legitimate"beef" w/ someone who works for you. Not tough to find out. Would be the right thing to do so
— Michele Simmons (@MojaveMusing) November 28, 2013
Do the right thing indeed… the tweets keep coming and coming.
