Dr. Bernice King, the daughter of Coretta Scott King, took to the streets of Twitter with a quick reminder to put some respect on her mother’s name.

Bernice offered a necessary PSA after Jonathan Majors referred to his girlfriend, Meagan Good, as his “Coretta” because she stood by his side throughout his assault and harassment case. 

His remark drew ire from many who fully understood Coretta Scott King was much more than a “ride or die chick.”

Dr. Bernice King entered the chat on Monday when she tweeted:

My mother wasn’t a prop. 

She was a peace advocate before she met my father and was instrumental in him speaking out against the Vietnam War. 

Please understand…my mama was a force. 

Bernice also included a link to a piece she wrote about her mother in 2017 titled, “A Woman Purposed To Be A King.” 

See the original tweet below. 

One Twitter user said they don’t understand why Jonathan Majors is always hollering “Coretta” when his preference is Susan B. Anthony.
