Shaun King and his family packed their bags and fled their $800,000 Brooklyn home overnight after media outlets revealed his address.
Social media users criticized King after news outlets revealed that he lived in a 5-bedroom, 3,000 square foot home in North Brunswick.
As news began circulating that the transracial Twitter activist lived in a home worth $842,000, Tamir Rice’s mother, Samaria Rice, called him out and accused him of funding his lavish lifestyle off her son’s name.
12-year-old Tamir was shot and killed by a police officer while playing with a toy gun in a Cleveland, Ohio park.

It wasn’t long before pictures of King’s home began circulating on Twitter.
On his private Instagram page, King wrote a lengthy post complaining that he was forced to leave his home.
He claimed the house was in his wife, Rai King’s name. King, pictured with Rai, previously reported that he hired security guards for his family’s safety.
“Today, I’ve had to make a heartbreaking decision. After a combination of Fox News, the NY Post, and other outlets posted pictures of my home across the Internet, we’ve now seen our address posted all over the Internet. Strangers have already started coming by the house. My kids can’t even go outside and play during the final month of summer break. So, we’re moving.
“I suppose it might always be this way. I don’t know. My wife bought this home, her first, after working her ass off for 20+ years. It took her nearly a year to even be able to purchase it.
“It was a quiet and peaceful refuge for her, for our 5 kids, for the dogs, and for our mothers. And it wasn’t excessive. Again, she got a literal FHA loan to purchase it. I’m not even on the loan. But now we’re not safe. And will never be safe here again. I’m so hurt for them. I’ve had to endure seeing my wife cry multiple times this week over the devastation of it all.
“I’ll be honest with you. I’m going to be bitter over this for a very long time.”
Not Shaun King now asking folks to Cash App/Zelle his wife so they can relocate into a new house with 24/7 security…
If this man pulls this off with y'all coins, y'all deserve every ounce of the grift that comes with it.

King, who was born to Caucasian parents, is best known for masquerading as a Black civil rights activist.
He is universally scorned for raising donations for Black people killed by white officers, but the families never see the money.
