Shaun King is a success story, of sorts. The #BlackLivesMatter activist moved on to lead Justice Together, an anti-police brutality group that claimed to have “chapters in all 50 states and on over 300 college campuses” and included on its board luminaries such as Attorney Benjamin Crump, who represented the families ofTrayvon Martin, Michael Brown and Tamir Rice, and actress Gabrielle Union.

Kingwas also picked up as a writer for the Daily Kos website, and then was hired by the New York Daily News to fill its newly created senior justice writer position not a bad gig at all.

Tonight, though, Shaun King is a trending topic in the United States and has inspired the#ShaunKingLetMeDown hashtag.

Chandra Paz got the ball rolling this morning by tweetingthat she still has love for Shaun King for shedding light on the dark corners on American society. However

Paz noted that she began to see a pattern in King’s behavior, a pattern that had not gone unnoticed by others who wondered what happened to the money donated to King’s previous nonprofits,“A Home in Haiti” and“Hope Mob.”

Via Facebook, King explained that his nationwide organization with 300 college chapters would actually launch in one state, Georgia, as a pilot project.

King posted an explanation of sorts on Facebook today, blaming a controversy over his race (he claims to be mixed-race, which he eventually attributed to his mother’s extramarital affair with a light-skinned black man) for throwing his life into disarray.

just days before we were scheduled to launch [Justice Together], as I am sure every single one of you know, my entire life was turned upside down. My name and my life story were literally the top news story in the country for over 48 hours, horrendous lies were told about me, my history, and my family, and the newfound notoriety only increased the death threats that we received.

Literally the top news story in the country for over 48 hours?

After that initial batch of Twitter posts, King’s story did become big news on Twitter as the damn broke and other shared their feelings.

At least one person has managed to talk to King. Fellow Justice Together board member DeRay McKesson says it’s been a learning experience.
