Leon Jenkins Gets the Roast of a Lifetime Courtesy of Twitter

Leon Jenkins

Leon Jenkins had just one job to do as president of the Los Angeles chapter of the NAACP. What was that one job? How about not accepting money from a known racist? Or how about not honoring a known racist with an award?

Well, make that two jobs Jenkins had to do, and at which he failed miserably.

After catching flak from the Sterling scandal, Jenkins and his luscious Jheri curl resigned as president of the chapter. 


In typical social media fashion, Jenkins has been getting roasted all morning. Check out some of the funniest tweets:

The next time you’re at your family reunion and you notice that one man you’ve never seen before, he just might be Jenkins, looking for that free plate of food.
