Race scammer Shaun King humiliated by hostages released by Hamas after trying to claim credit
This is too perfect. Everyone on social media is mocking Shaun King, yet again, for his latest race hustling scam that has blown up in his face.
Everyone welcomed the news that the Hamas terrorists had released two hostages from the U.S., but King saw an opportunity to try to further his scam operation.
So he claimed that the hostages were his supporters and that he had helped gain their release:
“Hamas has just freed the teenager Natalie Raanan and her mother. I’m grateful. As I said last week, Natalie and her family have been supporters of mine and protested police violence in America alongside us,” he said. “I am also thankful for the Qatari government for helping to negotiate this. Dozens of us worked frantically behind the scenes to help make this possible. I spoke to Natalie’s family this afternoon and they are anxiously awaiting more updates.”
It didn’t take long before the news got back to the family and they made it clear they had nothing to do with this man.
“First and foremost, we make it clear that he is lying! Our family does not and did not have anything to do with him, neither directly nor indirectly. Not to him and not to anything he claims to represent,” read a statement from the family obtained by TMZ.
Wow how humiliating.
Now apparently the family is saying Natali’s father did contact him:
“We reached out to many people far and wide to bring Natalie and Judith to safety. We are not affiliated with Mr. King,” he said. “Ben, my son was talking with him without anybody in the family knowing about it until today. Our family in Israel posted this statement denying we knew him, before we learned about Ben talking to him. We have nothing further to say.”
But that’s a far cry from saying they are his supporters and that he had anything to do with their release…
“I spoke directly and repeatedly with this family. I have a job, career, and family. I would be throwing everything away to make such a thing up,” King told The Daily Beast by email Saturday. “Thankfully I kept records of all of them.”
The Daily Beast makes it sound like King might have pretended to have Palestinian contacts in order to insinuate himself into this very tense story. I guess we’ll have to see what happens, but with every new story about “Talcum X” his reputation gets trashed and people realize they cannot trust him.
