Prominent Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King went on a blocking spree in the aftermath of an investigative report published by TheBlaze Monday, forbidding anyone who dared ask him about it from being able to see his account.
On Monday, TheBlaze published a report which questioned whether King's suggestion that he was the victim of a racially charged mob beating was accurate. A police report, witness statements and details provided by the detective who was assigned to the case heavily dispute King's version of events.
The well-known activist, who has appeared on CNN and been quoted in countless media outlets, did not respond to multiple requests for comment from TheBlaze.
When the story was published, and individuals also began questioning him, King's response was to block them on Twitter.
One person wrote that he simply asked King about the story and was immediately blocked.
Others shared similar experiences.
King has still not responded to request for comment from TheBlaze. After our story was published Monday, this reporter was also blocked from viewing his Twitter account.
