“As we get further and further away from his life, it’s easy to forget what he was really about, which means sometimes people celebrate him in a really fucked up way,” Wood said.
This year’s biggest fails included an “MLK Day Sale” with “25% off everything Black,” a since-canceled “Freedom 2 Twerk” MLK Day party and one particularly astonishing use of his legacy to push a political agenda.
