Controversial Martin Luther King Jr. Flyers

Recently, DJ Iceman posted a promotional flyer on FaceBook, a flyer he expressed outrage over. The flyer contained a Photoshopped Martin Luther King Jr. sporting current bling-bling attire.  Then, the words Freedown 2 Twerk was added.

I’m sorry. When I saw this, I laughed real loud. It wasn’t funny. Yet, still, I couldn’t help laughing.

DJ Iceman posted another flyer involving Bling-Bling Dr. King.

Searching Google, I found yet another flyer, an even worse one.  This one contained strippers and the n-word, plus the b-word aimed at women too.

The graphic designer apologized for the last flyer.

Seriously, these flyers show bad taste.  Dr. King fought and died for the dignity of African-Americans.  Using his image to promote dirty fun tarnishes Dr. Kings legacy. (I still find the images funny, tho.)
