After the death of Stan Lee yesterday, a newspaper in New Zealand confused the Marvel Legend for BlacKkKlansman Spike Lee.
After Lee passed away in Los Angeles, CA at the age of 95 yesterday, The Gisborne Herald newspaper made a mistake in their covering regarding the death of Lee, publishing “Spike Lee Dies At 95” on the top of its front page Tuesday morning. Many fans had a lot to say about it while Spike himself was a good sport.
RIP … *checks notes*
