OG civil-rights activist (and long-lost member of The Temptations) Rev. Al Sharpton has been woke since before most of us knew how to wipe our asses. And recently, Rev. Al has been showcasing his newer, slimmer body in a series of selfies on his Instagram that can only be identified as what James Brown would look like now if he arose from the dead and became a Zumba instructor.
Last Sunday on Father’s Day, 62-year-old Rev. Al decided to seduce us all by becoming the daddy we never knew we needed, when he posted this ultra hot “stick figure with pimp hair” selfie in the picture above, with this caption:
Happy Father’s Day!! Headed to workout at dawn, then I’m live on Politics Nation w/Al Sharpton at 8 am/et on MSNBC, then on my national radio show from 9-10 am, and then I preach the 9 30 and 11 30 am services at Metropolitan Baptist Church in Newark, NJ. Thank God for energy and purpose as I celebrate another Father’s Day.
Yeah, no, Rev. Al. Those legs look like the wood from the signs you protest with. And not that we even asked for an encore of his new killer bod, but Rev. Al delivered more sexy good times when he posted the following video of himself doing push-ups in his office.

I see you Rev. Al! Especially when he tried to go for a one-arm push-up until he realized “NOPE! I don’t want to look ridiculous.” TOO LATE! And the internet has had a field day turning the good reverend of thirst into this week’s top “What The Fuck?” meme. Well now it’s Rev. Al’s turn to address his haters by informing them that he knows he’s sexy and err’body else is just JEALOUS! HuffPo reports (via TMZ) that Rev. Al isn’t here for any of the negativity since we live in an era where our nation’s leader tweets all day like a disgruntled pre-teen.
“I live in the Trump era. If he can tweet at night, I can selfie before I go to the gym in the morning and don’t be jealous because I’m so fit at 62 years old.”
He then said he’s using his photos to promote a healthy lifestyle.
“I work out. I was showing people you work out, you take your health seriously. I think it’s a good thing. I’m gonna keep doing it.”
Al also did an interview with The Root where he continued to justify his over-sharing by saying it’s all in the name of education.
“I want to contribute not only to exercise but to study. I study a lot. I read a lot. I’m going to be sharing on Instagram my reading materials—a lot of books people ought to be reading that they’re not.
“You take life seriously. I do a lot of morning meditations and reflections and prayer. I’m going to start putting all of that—since people are so interested in what I am doing, I’m going to do more!”
It doesn’t take a genius to recognize that Rev. Al has been diagnosed with U.T.T.S (Ultra Thirst Trap Syndrome) because this is some epic “Look at me. I’m Thin Now!” attention whoring. And let’s not forget that Rev. Al has been around for a very long time, so he’s not new to the game. But honestly, I’d rather it be these super skinny bobble head selfies than him leaking some nudes. Because that’s when the feds would need to break down Rev. Al’s door and confiscate all of his devices.
