Controversial activist Shaun King on Tuesday said that he’s received death threats after calling for churches to remove all depictions of Jesus, the Holy Family and the apostles as “white European” because he sees such depictions as a form of “white supremacy.”

On Monday, King, a political activist who introduced Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., at the democratic socialist’s presidential campaign kickoff rally in Brooklyn last year, tweeted about the toppling of statues across the United States before he demanded that churches follow suit by removing all images of Jesus that depict Him as white.

By Tuesday morning, King said he’d received “about 20 death threats in the past 12 hours since I said that statues of white European Jesus are a tool of oppression for white supremacy and should be taken down.”
