The family of the white man whom Black Lives Matter huckster Shaun King falsely named as a suspect in the killing of 7-year-old Houston girl Jazmine Barnes is receiving torture, rape, and death threats.
“I hear, ‘Someone is going to rape, torture and murder the women and children in your family,” Hailey Cantrell reportedly said, reading from comments directed towards her family online.
King posted a photo of a suspect sketch, which King assumed from “tips” sent to him was Hailey’s uncle, Robert Cantrell. The sketch was was posted King’s Twitter account, which has 1.1 million followers, naming Cantrell as the suspect in Barnes’ murder.
“We’ve had 20 people call or email us and say he is a racist, violent (expletive) and always has been. Just tell me everything you know,” King wrote in Twitter the post accompanying the photo.
The Tweet has now been deleted, and two black suspects are in custody. Eric Black Jr., 20, has been charged for the murder.
But that has not stopped the internet mob, led by King, from attacking the Cantrell family.
“I just want everyone to back off. The truth is out. It had nothing to do with us, nothing to do with my uncle at all,” said Hailey according to the report.
King remained remorseless about unleashing an angry social justice mob to exact vigilante justice against an innocent white man, which could have easily led to bodily harm for a person who turned out to be an innocent bystander.
He offered an explanation on his Instagram account – a diatribe that amounts him admitting that he was wrong, which we already knew – but he did not offer an apology.
CNN praised him for his “help” in finding the killer in an article billing King as a hero.
“Two days after Jazmine’s death, King turned to his legion of Twitter followers to enlist their help in finding her killer and offered a reward of $25,000 for information,” the piece said.
The known fake news network made no mention that King directed his followers to find an innocent white man, or that King only involved himself in this particular homicide because white on black crime bolsters his business of anti-white hatred.
King, a white man, profits off his activism in the Black Lives Matter movement. He claimed his father was black until a news network obtained the document, which says that his father was white. He then claimed that the man listed on his birth certificate is not his biological father.
