Mike Epps came under fire on Thursday night after posting and then quickly deleting a seemingly offensive photo.

In an image shared on the star’s Instagram account, a Black man can be seen whipping three White men (slaves) picking cotton … above the photo, there was a faded image of a smiling Martin Luther King Jr. looking down from the sky. The caption read:

“Iam so proud of you bro! Lol.”
