New York Times Calls Michael Brown “No Angel” In Obit, Twitter Reacts [Photos]
Thousands paid their respects and bid farewell to 18-year-old Michael Brown on August 25.
The slain teen’s parents alongside Civil Rights leaders Rev. Al Sharpton and Martin Luther King III, including Ferguson natives, extended their support at Brown’s funeral.
Prior to his burial, New York Times writer John Eligon penned an obituary on Brown, using the words “no angel” to describe the college-bound teen.
Twitter didn’t take it too lightly and, as such, reacted to Eligon’s choice words with the #NoaAngel hashtag.
