90’s talk show host and modern day payday loan shark Montel Williams was promptly escorted out the paint earlier today, thanks to a simple tweet commenting on civil rights activist DeRay McKesson.
@deray is no MLK. Let's just get that real clear.

Williams’ tweet looked to be a response to McKesson’s appearance on The FOX News show “Hannity,” where host Sean Hannity referred to the activist as a “race pimp.”
Although the tweet was fired off in the wee hours of the morning, word spread quickly of the former talk show host’s remarks. While Williams’ tweet may or may not have gotten lost in digital translation, it was already too late. Twitter proceeded to give the “other” Montel that work. And we captured some of the highlights of the roast session.
