Will Shaun King’s new claims affect his net worth? Laugh at Twitter’s roasts
It seems like Twitter’s favorite punching bag has come back for another round. American writer and civil rights activist Shaun King has come under fire once again after Samaria Rice, mother of Tamir Rice, dragged Shaun King in a way that many speculate will hurt his net worth.
Samaria Rice took to Instagram yesterday, claiming her conversation with Shaun King about the funds he had raised in her son’s name was toxic & uncomfortable, stating that she hadn’t asked him to raise any money. This claim, however, isn’t what may end up taking Shaun King’s net worth to the toilet. That belongs to the post he made about how he was, in fact, a black man after Rice argued otherwise.
The post detailed his heritage in laughable terms and, naturally, Twitter took it and ran with it. We laughed our way through the threads and found the best reactions to this latest hit to Shaun King’s net worth. Grab your teacups and dive into the best reactions to the latest Shaun King tea.
Every few months #ShaunKing ends up back in the news for some nonsense and it’s just like—we cannot get this guy out of the paint. Black people have been trying for 6 years. It’s on white folks now. Y’all gotta get him out of the paint.
I mean for crying out loud.
