Dr. Martin Luther King's Daughter Directs Jonathan Majors' To Stop Already

A jury found Jonathan Majors, guilty of on two counts; misdemeanor assault and harassment. Majors was originally facing 4 charges. Just before the new year his domestic violence case began; where Majors was caught on street cameras in New York City with then-girlfriend, Grace Jabbari in a tussle.

The couple go into an altercation in the back of an SUV. As reported prior Majors is seen on video "assisting" his ex-girlfriend back into the SUV and attempting to walk away. Nonetheless Majors said he was "absolutely shocked" by the verdict in an exclusive interview with Linsey Davis of ABC on Good Morning America. When asked to describe his relationship with new girlfriend Megan Good, Majors said, “She’s an angel. She’s held me down like a Coretta. I’m so blessed to have her.” 

Megan was by Jonathan's side the entire trial.

Though Majors words used to describe his relationship with Good may have been a comforting ideology during a difficult time; Rev. Bernice King is not here for Majors continus references to her mother Coretta Scott King.

The Rev. Bernice King, daughter of Coretta Scott King and Martin Luther King Jr., wants the internet and the entire world to know her mother was not a prop. Bernice shared her thoughts with a picture of her mother on X.

While she didn’t mention Majors’ name in her post, she wanted to remind people that her mother, a civil rights icon, “wasn’t a prop.”

“She was a peace advocate before she met my father and was instrumental in him speaking out against the Vietnam War,” Bernice King wrote on X, formerly Twitter. “Please understand…my mama was a force.”

Bernice King's post came a day after Majors gave his first interview.

This isn’t the first time he’s evoked Coretta Scott King or compared himself to Martin Luther King Jr. In an audio recording that was admitted during the trial, Majors is heard telling his then-girlfriend to behave more like Coretta Scott King and former first lady Michelle Obama. Majors’ statements have drawn ire and jokes from social media users.

The social media backlash was swift, with many criticizing Majors for appearing to reduce Coretta Scott King to a simple supporter of her husband rather than a civil rights leader in her own right. “Reducing Coretta Scott King to a ‘ride or die chick’ is pathetic,” one person wrote.

Another commented: “Coretta Scott King was not a sidekick. She was an activist before and after MLK’s death, mobilized Black voters & was a political force for decades. She was not a silent trophy wife. Don’t say you ‘want a Coretta’ if you don’t want a Black woman who will hold you accountable.”

King’s post reminding the world who her mother was before she was a "King" amassed more than 12,000 reposts. She included a link Huffpost Article from 2017; she wrote about Coretta Scott King’s work as a civil rights leader and her life outside of the family.

King wrote that her mother was a gifted vocalist, musician and a passionate civil rights activist all before meeting her husband.

Do you think Jonathan Majors is showing signs of being obsessed with the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his wife Coretta Scott King?
