Leave it to CNN to try to use Martin Luther King Day to promote divisiveness.
The cable news giant tweeted that it wanted to debunk myths about the great civil rights leader but instead offered a misleading headline and a link that led to a non-related story.
No, MLK wasn’t a Republican. That and other King myths debunked in honor of #MLKDay https://t.co/I7biY9LDKz pic.twitter.com/JZ47GiM95W

Smooth move, CNN.
It didn’t take long for others to react to the flubs.
This article isn’t even about MLK. It’s about space flowers. #GoHomeYoureDrunk https://t.co/FEWy7m0rAT

@CNN Oh the irony. You try to jab at Republicans using MLK and epic fail with a link about space flowers. GOOD JOB! ??

1. Your headline is a lie. 2. Your link is about space flowers. 3. Somehow that makes sense, because it’s CNN. https://t.co/MpGHoCw44M
