Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King deleted his Twitter account Saturday without explanation, saying he will return to social media in August.
“I’m taking off of social media for the rest of July. See you in August. Follow @mrsraiking for family updates,” King wrote on his Instagram page, which is now set to private.
King recently had a public falling out with Samaria Rice, the mother of Tamir Rice, a 12-year-old boy involved in a fatal 2014 confrontation with police. Rice left a scathing Instagram post characterizing King as a “self-centered” person who “can’t be trusted”, according to the New York Post.
