Some social media users called the photo “disgusting” and “disrespectful” and questioned if it was a “joke.” Others called it “awesome” and “hilarious.”

“Brother King wouldn't have supported the incoherently ignoramus Trump, because unlike him, Brother King was a REPUBLICAN!” one commenter wrote.

“I'm losing brain cells just by looking at this,” wrote another.

“It's not coming from hate. It's coming from a joke. So calm down,” said another.

One could only manage, “smh.”

According to WTSP-TV, the photo was taken at the University of South Florida, where it also generated a great deal of reaction.
