‘‘Black Lives Matter’ leader Deray McKesson was left embarrased after he claimed that a toy manufacturer and Hollywood in general were depicting black people as apes, only to later delete the tweet when his attempt at race baiting was hilariously exposed.

McKesson tweeted, “Given the history of rendering black people as apes, I’m offended and appalled by the lack of consciousness in Hollywood. #PlanetOfTheApes,” alongside an image of the cover of the new blockbuster War for the Planet of the Apes and a toy figurine of a “bad ape” wearing a blue vest.

Serial race baiter Tariq Nasheed also got in on the act, tweeting, “Does the new Planet of the Apes poster have racially coded messages? Notice the #BlackLivesMatter symbolism. Notice the ape with the blue vest.”’
