AceShowbiz - Muhammad Ali's son, Muhammad Ali Jr., has spoken up against Black Lives Matter. In an interview with New York Post, the 47-year-old said that his father would've hated it and agreed with President Donald Trump that the protesters should be labeled as terrorists.
"I think it's racist," he said of the movement. "It's not just black lives matter, white lives matter, Chinese lives matter, all lives matter, everybody's life matters. God loves everyone - he never singled anyone out. Killing is wrong no matter who it is." He insisted, "It's a racial statement. It's pitting black people against everyone else. It starts racial things to happen; I hate that."
Ali Jr. blasted the BLM protesters, saying, "Don't bust up s**t, don't trash the place. You can peacefully protest. My father would have said, ‘They ain’t nothing but devils." He continued, "They're no different from Muslim terrorists. They should all get what they deserve. They're f**king up businesses, beating up innocent people in the neighborhood, smashing up police stations and shops."
"They're terrorists - they're terrorizing the community. I agree with the peaceful protests, but the Antifa, they need to kill everyone in that thing," he added. "Black Lives Matter is not a peaceful protest. Antifa never wanted it peaceful. I would take them all out."
While he said that the officer who killed George Floyd "was wrong," he argued, "But people don't realize there was more footage than what they showed. The guy resisted arrest, the officer was doing his job, but he used the wrong tactic."
Ali Jr. went on defending police. "Not all the police are bad, there's just a few. There's a handful of police that are crooked, they should be locked up," he said. "I never had a bad scene with a cop. They've always been nice and protect me. I don't have a problem with them."
Ali Jr., who was the fourth-born to the late boxer's first wife Belinda Boyd a.k.a. Khalilah Ali, also showed his support for President Trump. "I think Trump's a good president," he claimed. "My father would have supported him. Trump's not a racist, he's for all the people. Democrats are the ones who are racist and not for everybody. Trump is much better than [Hillary] Clinton and Obama. ... The only one to do what he said he would do is Donald Trump."
His statements in the interview quickly garnered mixed responses, with one critic slamming him, "Muhammad Ali Jr. is BASED AF." Another responded with a little humor, "Lol his Daddy would have wop his ass good but we know he's the sick one."
Noting that Ali Jr. is a problematic man himself, a third Twitter user wrote, "In 2016 Muhammad Ali Jr. was trying to sell some of his dad's memorabilia at a pawn shop, and living in poverty. They were estranged. He seemed like a young guy who wanted to be rich, blaming his life on being spoiled as a kid. Why believe a disgruntled son's words? Zero cred."
Some others compared him to his sister Laila Ali, who supported BLM movement. "Muhammad Ali Jr. a coon but at least his daughter not on that same bulls**t," one remarked. Another added, "Imagine your son defaming you & being an opp. I'm sorry Muhammad Ali, but Jr. needs to get his s**t rocked. Ali literally marched with the Panthers and refused to go to Vietnam and kill innocents. Yo daddy gonna call on himself and Joe Frazier from the grave to come and whup on u."
