If anyone knows their movie history, they know that Levar Burton starred as Kunta Kinte in the movie Roots. For all you young’uns, Roots is a mini-series which chronicles the life of the Gambian turned US slave, Kunta Kinte, and his family line. The novel was written by Alex Haley who is a direct descendant of Kunta.
So, when Kendrick Lamar came out with the song King Kunta, Levar Burton had to make sure Mr. Lamar knew who was the REAL Kunta Kinte. Hint: Not Kendrick Lamar. LOL. Oh, Twitter. You are one of the greatest platforms for trolling.
