Tariq Nasheed is not pleased that Jemele Hill used her ESPN platform to trash Black men. He is also at odds with #MeToo founder Tarana Burke for saying Black men are predators.

So when the former ESPN anchor and #MeToo activist dissed Tariq in her podcast, Tariq went IN on Twitter and Instagram.

"Y'all wanna come at me saying there's a movement against Black men?" said Burke. "Let's talk about reality; you're repeating something that Tariq said."

In his response, Tariq pointed out that Burke confirmed her family is non-ADOS from the Caribbean.

"Tarana Burke was on Jemele Hill's podcast & finally admitted that she is non-Ados, and her parents are Caribbean. This explains all of her vitriol toward Foundational Black Americans. Tarana mentions me by name, & Jemele Hill takes a lil’ jab at me in this clip#IseeYou".

"Her Caribbean upbringing [a] has a lot to do with her view of men. Our cultural experiences are not the same," tweeted one user.

"And that's why Becky stole her movement," wrote another user.

Tariq didn't appreciate Burke dropping his name - and neither did his followers, who dug up an old tweet in which Burke disparaged Black men for their "predatory behavior."

"Why is it MY job to go after white men?" she tweeted.
