Social media exploded as the FBI remembered the civil rights hero in a flattering #MLK Day tweet. Ironically, It’s the same hero the FBI wiretapped and threatened with a sex scandal, while allegations remain that the FBI had a hand in his assassination.
“Today, the FBI honors the Rev. Martin L. King Jr. and his incredible career fighting for civil rights. #MLKDAY” The FBI tweet included a photograph with the caption “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere/ We are caught in a an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”
The Twittersphere lit up with 1,400 shares in just three hours and nearly 1,000 comments. Another tweet included a copy of the letter where the FBI said Dr King should kill himself. Twitter users said the only appropriate tweet from the FBI should be, “He was a great man and we are really sorry.”
