Shaun King Threatens to Sue Activists After Being Accused of Fraudulent Fundraising

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. 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.
