Two days after film and Saturday Night Live star Leslie Jones challenged Dr. Ben Carson to a fight with some particularly choice words — “Cash me outside muthafucka! How bout dat!!
#Slaveswerenotimmigrants FUCKFACE!!” — Breitbart, the website where her arch nemesis used to troll, has picked up the slack.
Breitbart noted that it was Jones who instigated this latest online skirmish with her stated “desire to physically harm Dr. Carson.”
It all started with Carson’s remarks Monday about slavery. Carson, like Jones, is African-American, and in speaking to employees at the Department of Housing and Urban Development about his vision for the future as its new secretary, he said this:
That’s what America is about, a land of dreams and opportunity. There were other immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships, worked even longer, even harder for less. But they too had a dream that one day their sons, daughters, grandsons, granddaughters, great-grandsons, great-granddaughters, might pursue prosperity and happiness in this land.
And do you know of all the nations in the world, this one, the United States of America, is the only one big enough and great enough to allow all those people to realize their dream. And this is our opportunity to enhance that dream.
Jones saw an opportunity, as well: to enhance Carson’s face with her fists.
