Seems like now we know what Al Sharpton is called a reverend for…most of his church members are either carrying sticks, signs and angry attitudes are they are getting laid to rest. Sharpnuts has not only become the Prince Pimpster of Poverty, he’s also been the Evangelist Lay to Rest as he continues to be out in front of all high profiled funerals (Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, James Brown, Etta James, Troy Davis and many more).
The Rev. Al Sharpton and other civil rights leaders will join family and friends in Los Angeles at a public funeral service for Rodney King.
Sharpton, who says in a statement that King was “a symbol of civil rights” who “represented the anti-police brutality and anti-racial profiling movement of our time,” will deliver the eulogy Saturday at Forest Lawn Hollywood Hills.
The funeral comes nearly two weeks after King was found dead at the bottom of the swimming pool at his Rialto, Calif. home on June 17. He was 47.
King’s death is being treated as an accidental drowning but authorities are awaiting autopsy results to determine the official cause of death.
King became famous after his beating by Los Angeles police in 1991 was captured on videotape and broadcast worldwide.
