Progressive ‘racial justice’ personality and activist Shaun King became the target of a Twitter backlash on Wednesday night after threatening lawsuits against other activists who had accused him of a lack of transparency regarding fundraising initiatives and siphoning money for personal use.
King claimed to have assembled a legal team that would pursue defamation lawsuits against individuals who had supposedly been lying about him. He then shared a picture of a tweet made by an activist named Clarissa Brooks asking for answers from King about questions pertaining to potential financial mismanagement of funds raised for a social justice entity.
After being de facto targeted by King and accused of lying, Brooks responded with an account of being bullied and legally threatened by King’s team of lawyers- for simply asking a question about fiscal transparency. Brooks apparently had been contacted by King’s lawyers immediately after asking about his actions in regards to funds raised for Cyntonia Brown, a Tennessee woman convicted of murder recently granted a pardon by the state’s governor.
After King claimed that Brooks retracted her statement, Brooks clarified that she hadn’t, and only initially deleted her tweet after being browbeated over it by King’s legal team.
It appears many prominent ‘Black Twitter’ social media users share Brooks’ skepticism over King’s track record of ostensibly raising funds for social justice endeavors, only to see the money disappear without any answers or transparency from King.
King’s track record of dubious conduct is prolific even when one disregards questions pertaining to corrupt fundraising. He’s falsely accused an innocent bystander of murdering a black child- apparently on the mere basis of being white. When it came out that a black man committed the murder for which King ginned up a social media manhunt over, he declined to formally apologize for falsely accusing a man of murdering a child.
Bill de Blasio Booed off Stage at George Floyd Memorial Event
Even New Yorkers are sick of the left-wing mayor.
New York City mayor Bill de Blasio was roundly booed off stage during an appearance at a George Floyd memorial event on Thursday, with a raucous crowd drowning out the mayor’s remarks with boos and a torrent of profanity.
A Brooklyn pastor tried to encourage the crowd to treat de Blasio with respect, but he was roundly booed anyway.
“Let us welcome, with respect, the mayor of New York City, Bill de Blasio.”

De Blasio continued with his remarks, even though it was clear the crowd at the memorial didn’t want to hear from him. At points he couldn’t even be heard because the booing was so loud.

De Blasio’s as left-wing as they come, but he’s become increasingly unpopular in New York City for his handling of the Floyd race riots, which have surfaced in force in the already coronavirus-stricken city. Some New Yorkers are incensed with the curfew instituted to deter looting, and others are angry with the city’s total inability to deter the looting anyway. Governor Andrew Cuomo has already threatened to override de Blasio’s authority in order to put an end to the mass-scale rioting and looting in the city.
More than 700 rioters were arrested on Monday night alone, and more than 60 NYPD officers had to be hospitalized as a result of injuries sustained in the riots. The police department has increasingly given up on the prospect of restoring law and order in New York City, frustrated by de Blasio’s continual refusal to allow law enforcement to actually stop the widespread riots.
