One of the world’s most consistent elements is that the Internet’s ruthlessness. It could be anyone. As long as you’re a celebrity and have a fleeting moment of judgement, expect a roast.
That’s what happened to Al Sharpton earlier today (June 18). He innocently took to Instagram to wish everyone a Happy Father’s day and got slammed…
Well, that’s not the whole story. He posted a pic of himself wearing gym clothes and looked rather thin. Oh yeah, and it was a selfie… A very weird selfie.
The MSNBC host and reverend said that he was on the way to his workout, but by the time people looked at the photo, it was already over.
See Al Sharpton’s now-infamous IG post as well as some of the most hilarious reaction to it below.
Happy Father's Day!! Headed to workout at dawn, then I'm live on Politics Nation w/Al Sharpton at 8 am/et on MSNBC, then on my national radio show from 9-10 am, and then I preach the 9 30 and 11 30 am services at Metropolitan Baptist Church in Newark, NJ. Thank God for energy and purpose as I celebrate another Father's Day.
