In this corner, we’ve got Rep. John Lewis: D-Georgia, marched alongside Martin Luther King, Jr. He served next to the civil rights legend as they were beaten on the Edmund Pettus Bridge during the 1965 march from Selma to Montgomery. Lewis had been beaten at restaurants, received innumerable death threats and arrested numerous times.
And in the other corner? Rob Schneider. Adam Sandler’s go-to guy for portraying racial stereotypes in a supremely abusive manner. Also, he tried to bang a goat in one of his roles. So it comes as no surprise that Schneider, portraying his best role yet as a straw man, grasps at a hefty straw in an attempt to remain relevant:
Rep. Lewis. You are a great person. But Dr. King didn't give in to his anger or his hurt. That is how he accomplished & won Civil Rights.— Rob Schneider (@RobSchneider) January 16, 2017
In the event Schneider gets some clarity and takes it down, here it is to haunt him for the rest of his days.
Now that Civil Rights have been won, we should definitely let noted historian Rob Schneider explain Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to THE MAN WHO LITERALLY SAT NEXT TO HIM.
Do not despair, poodles. Kumail Nanjiani is gunning hard for a spot on your Pajiba 10 list this year and might win you over:
