This just keeps getting funnier and funnier – EVERYTIME I see it: Fat Al Sharpton getting his ass handed to him in the video below. It’s taken from an appearance before a capacity crowd at the Apollo Theater in Harlem, NY.
To mark the 25th anniversary of the incident, Harlem’s Maysles Cinema hosted a special screening of the documentary ÉVOCATEUR: THE MORTON DOWNEY JR. MOVIE on Wednesday, July 24.
Scroll down for the hilarious video
Sharpton made the big mistake of running his mouth to Roy Innis, who didn’t take it very well. A fistfight erupted between Reverend Al and Roy Innis. The cause was the controversial Tawana Brawley rape allegations.
Roy Innis joined director Jeremy Newberger and Touré, the host of MSNBC’s The Cycle, at the Maysles Cinema for a riveting discussion after the screening. Al Sharpton was invited to attend, but silently declined.
Roy Innis, for those of you that don’t know, is an activist and a huge fighter for racial equality. He’s also been the National Chairman of the Congress of Racial Equality since 1968. So for all intents and purposes, Innis is a much larger figure in the fight than Sharpton.
On the topic of the now-debunked Tawana Brawley case, Innis takes issue with Sharpton’s lies, and gets riled up to the point that he got up and laid Sharpton out with one punch.
The fun starts around 6:40, but the whole video is worth a watch.
So why watch the entire thing? It’s because this is one of the best examples out there showing who Sharpton really is. He’s still the same racist he was back then. He still spews the same hate speech and is setting black Americans back decades, while pocketing tons of cash.
Roy Innis, you’ve done what we all wish we could do – knock that race-baiter Shapton flat out with one shove.
