Many believe that Michael Blackson’s question about Martin Luther King Jr. was inappropriate.
“I don’t mean to start no sheet but I heard that Martin Luther King had a white side chick. Is it true,” asked Blackson on Twitter. “I’m just a beechn***a from a little village so please let me know.”
Blackson is seemingly referring to Betty Moitz, a woman that claimed in 2016 that she and King Jr. were “madly in love” when they were young. However, their relationship was more serious than Blackson leads on, as they seemingly were both heartbroken after splitting up.
The question didn’t go over well with many of the comedian’s fans, including fellow funnyman Katt Williams.
