Donald Trump's pathetic attempt to appeal to Black voters by tabbing Don King to introduce him in Cleveland on Wednesday backfired in the worst way.
The eccentric boxing promoter dropped the N-word during the introduction of Trump to African-American pastors at the New Spirit Revival Center in his native Cleveland, while the presidential candidate and his two white associates laughed behind him.
The sad display turned the 85-year-old King into a trending topic on Twitter, as a majority of social media users blasted him and Trump for the pitiful pandering attempt.
One of those social media users turned out to be none other than T.I.
The outspoken rapper, who has blasted Trump in the past, took to his Instagram account later in the day and served up a scathing post aimed at King.
Tip begins the post calling King a "spineless soul-selling coon," a sell-out and a "f**king disgrace to all generations of black people."
Whoa! Don King more than earned this ether after daring to fix his face to say that "we need Donald Trump, especially Black people."
Shaking our heads in disgust.
Peep T.I.'s full post below.
[Warning: Instagram post contains profanity].
Evoking boxing greats such as Muhammad Ali, Mike Tyson and Floyd Mayweather Jr. at the end only added to Tip's distaste for King.
