Shaun King is bringing unnecessary attention to the call for justice following the shooting of Jacob Blake after he posted some heada** tweets.
Black Twitter is quickly distancing itself from Shaun King, aka Talcum X, which is hilariously trending after he was called out by many on the right for a tweet threatening to name and blame officers for the shooting of Jacob Blake. Immediately he was criticized with many pointing to two situations where King falsely accused people. One incident he King pushed a woman’s discredited claims that Officer Daniel Hubbard raped her during a stop.
Another incident led to the death of a man who killed himself after King shared his photo to his millions of Twitter followers, falsely accusing him of the murder of 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes.
While those on the right are quick to associate the “activist” those calling for justice for Jacob Blake, Black Twitter wasted no time in letting them know that Shaun King does not speak for them. One user said in a tweet while sharing a screenshot of his stupidity he didn’t hesitate to press send on:
“Hi. I’m here to say one thing. Shaun King does not speak for me. I’m not sure it’s even legal to make threats like this.”
The tweet in question is still up on King’s timeline, and he has even gone as far as to pin it on his page. In response to the outrage to his tweet, and people sharing his address, he claims that he has guards outside of his house because he caught police plotting to kill him.
Welp, this all self-inflicted. You can peep the reactions, or shall we say the lack of care that the right is dragging him on Twitter in the gallery below.

So con artist/top Bernie surrogate Shaun King is following up his attempts to incite violence by naming and threatening random police officers in Kenosha. He has a long history of naming the wrong people in shootings. Does @TwitterSafety have ANY rules for left-wing blue-checks? pic.twitter.com/1yRD47dQja— (((AG))) (@AGHamilton29) August 26, 2020
How the fuck, is Shaun King even allowed to be on Twitter!? This should be grounds for a ban hammer! https://t.co/6qQFYQ8aQR— BlackSageD Sony Still Censors Japanese Video Games (@BlackDGamer1) August 26, 2020
Bree Newsome, Ashley Yates, and the myriad Black women who have said this are 100% right: Shaun King is a chaos agent.— 🍁Imani Gandied Yams🍁 (@AngryBlackLady) August 26, 2020
The Jazmyne Barnes disaster should’ve been enough to convince most people but people stay keeping their head in the sand.

7. Wheres the lie?
People like Shaun King and the media can post videos of police brutality and black death because its a business to them. Their priority is not your mental health.— Andé (@HeyImAnde) August 24, 2020
Stop viewing it. You can read about it. And we can donate to those fighting against the police on the ground.
Twitter needs to suspends Shaun King account.— 👑 Black Professor 👑 (@WonderKing82) August 26, 2020
I hope we can all agree that Shaun King sucks and that we should stop giving him the attention, clout and money that he desperately craves.— Niles Edward Francis (@NilesGApol) August 26, 2020
He’s not a BLM activist. He’s a grifter, liar and shit stirring degenerate making a living off of black pain. Fuck Talcum X. https://t.co/hcEdBBrrzo— Brenda Jordan (They/Them) (@MeekMee18148596) August 26, 2020

13. Used everyone of his nicknames LOL
#ShaunKing (better known as Martin Luther Cream, Talcum X, Harriet Conman....etc) needs to keep Jacob Blake's name out of his fraudulent mouth. He should not be allowed to speak for the black community. Ever.— Corey Atherley (@Corey_Atherley) August 26, 2020
14. Its only right.
