* [[LoveItOrHateIt Love Him Or Hate Him]]: The man, his morals and his talents are all frequent topics of debate. [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement To say nothing else of him]], Lee is a unique individual.

* MinorityShowGhetto: His focus on black people might cause his work to fall into this. His highest grossest film, ''Film/InsideMan'', does star black actor DenzelWashington, but features a more diverse cast than his highly praised, but less successful films like ''Malcolm X'' and ''Do the Right Thing''.

* BaseBreaker: His take on [[Film/OldBoy2013 remaking Oldboy]] can be considered this, feeling it's weak in comparison to the [[{{Film/Oldboy}} original]].
** Giving his own interpretation of the ending to DoTheRightThing, mainly due to others feeling that Lee is doing a nasty TakeThat to his audience (basically the interpretation is him saying "White people won't get the ending") while some feel it ruins the mystic of the ending interpretation, hitting DeathOfTheAuthor levels.

** After giving out [[http://www.theverge.com/2013/11/12/5094762/spike-lee-sued-for-posting-wrong-zimmerman-address-on-twitter the wrong address of George Zimmerman]] on Twitter, "Spike Lee Angrily Tweets", wherein he posts something about an unrelated but similar-sounding person or subject to the article in question became a running joke on many sites including the Onion AV Club. For example, "Charles Manson about to get married in jail, Spike Lee angrily tweets Marilyn Manson's address".

* EverythingIsRacist: Spike Lee is often accused of this, such as when he criticized Creator/ClintEastwood for not featuring any black soldiers in ''Film/LettersFromIwoJima'', even though historically their units weren't present in the locations the story took place in.



* MinorityShowGhetto: His focus on black people might cause his work to fall into this. His highest grossest film, ''Film/InsideMan'', does star black actor DenzelWashington, but features a more diverse cast than his highly praised, but less successful films like Malcom X and Do the Right Thing.
* SmallNameBigEgo: Some believe Lee ''has this''. This is due to his constant usage of EverythingIsRacist on ''everything'' and often trying to justify his characters ('''especially''' in {{Do The Right Thing}}) as moral and mocking some audience's theories and thoughts as 'You wouldn't understand because you're not an African American'. It hasn't helped his career though..
