Eric Garner’s daughter, Erica Snipes, put Rev. Al Sharpton on blast as “all about the money” and “egotistical” in a video released by James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas group.
Snipes also hit out at Staten Island’s National Action Network chief Cynthia Davis as scolding her for the NAN logo on the Eric Garner flier. She said in the video, “Instead of me, he wants his face in front,” in reference to Sharpton.
Erica Snipes also said Davis was trying to make it seem as if she is indebted to the organization because “Al Sharpton paid for the funeral” in July.
In an interview with the New York Post, Snipes denied she claimed Al Sharpton was a “money-grubber,” but did not walk-back her comments about Davis.
Sharpton slammed O’Keefe’s group as “exploiting” Eric Garner’s daughter, who he called a “sincere victim.” He added, “They’re splicing and dicing stuff together. It was a distortion.”
Troy Wright, president of the Trayvon Martin Foundation was also seen in the video distancing the organization from Sharpton. It should be noted that the family of Akai Gurley did not want Al Sharpton to deliver the eulogy at his funeral.
