At an African American outreach event for the Donald Trump campaign in Cleveland this Wednesday, things got a little awkward when Don King dropped the N-word during a speech introducing the GOP nominee.
The legendary boxing promoter talked about the need for African-American entrepreneurship when he said, “I told Michael Jackson, I said, ‘if you’re poor, you are a poor negro — I would use the ‘n word…’”
Moments later, King did exactly that.
“If you are a dancing and sliding and gliding n*gger — I mean negro…”
Trump chuckled in amusement.
