This is just not a good week for activist on social media. Jesse Williams is getting dragged for turning Emmett Till’s death into the Colin Kaepernick NIKE meme to promote his new movie about seeking justice following Emmett’s brutal murder. In tweets, that are now deleted, Williams posted photos of Emmett’s mother, Mamie Till, crying with the caption “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.”

People on twitter quickly advised Jesse that the tweets were in poor taste and many told him to delete the post altogether. He deleted the tweets, but screenshots live on forever. Jesse’s name is now trending, as everyone reads him for filth.

Take a look at some of the tweets below.
