MSNBC host Al Sharpton shocked many Wednesday afternoon when he turned to Twitter to pose a "keeping it real" question about the recent Texas flooding to his nearly half-a-million followers.
The liberal civil-rights activist asked if the floods were "related to climate control" or if it was "God's rebuke" and requested listeners call into his radio program to weigh in.
Immediately following the tweet, Sharpton was blasted online.
After the tweet, Sharpton wrote on Twitter that there was an "interesting dialogue" about the topic on his radio show.
