Do The Right Thing Easter Egg - Writing on the Wall

Watch for the scene where Mookie is yelling at his sister, telling her to stay away from his boss. They're standing beside a brick wall. When they both feel like they've finished arguing, they walk away. On the wall are the words "Tawana told the truth." This was Spike Lee's small way of showing support for Tawana Brawley, a young girl that claimed she was a victim of a racial crime. Several people in the media had been calling it a hoax.

While you are correct in what the graffiti refers to, it's not an easter egg (it's very plainly on the wall as Mookie confronts Jade about Sal), and it doesn't show his support for Tawana, or Maryam Muhammad, as she's now known; both he and his sister Joie, who plays Jade, mention on the commentary for the Criterion Special Edition DVD that it was made simply for the purpose of being something that would have been written in graffiti on a wall in Bed-Stuy in 1989
