No one could believe it at first: Shaun King deleted his Twitter after weeks of brutal taunting by Black Twitter.
King announced he was deleting his Twitter app to spend time with his family.
But his followers claim he is on the run because he's in trouble with the law.

King was accused of raising funds for Black men killed by white police, but the money never made it to the victim's families.
Remember when Shaun King was like “I am going to climb the seven summits,” and then after people donated thousands of dollars he was like “I have realized I cannot climb a mountain”

Then Samaria Rice, the mother of Tamir Rice, dragged King and reminded him of his Caucasian bloodline.
Tamir is the 12-year-old Cleveland boy who was shot and killed by police for playing with a toy gun in 2014.
Rice slammed King for using her dead son's name to enrich himself.
"Personally I don't understand how you sleep at night," she said. "I never gave you permission to raise nothing."
She added: "As a white man acting black you are an imposter that can not be trusted."
Rice's allegations opened the door for Black Twitter to drag King up and down his timeline. The comments were brutal, and King deleted his Twitter account a few weeks later.
