Coretta Scott King‘s daughter, Dr. Bernice King, has seemingly responded to Jonathan Majors‘ comments about her mother, Coretta Scott King.

Bernice King went on X to reply to the former Marvel star’s continually referencing her mother following Jonathan Majors’ controversial “Good Morning America” interview.

Jonathan Majors granted his first interview since his domestic violence trial with ABC News anchor Linsey Davis on ‘Good Morning America’.

After the interview, the Creed III actor received backlash for comparing his current girlfriend, Meagan Good, to civil rights icon Coretta Scott King.

“She’s an angel. She held me down like a Coretta, you know. I’m so blessed to have her because the relationship is still fresh. I’m lucky I found her.”

During the interview, Majors also explained the trial recording Grace submitted that captured Majors shouting at her and demanding that she behave like influential figures such as Coretta Scott King or Michelle Obama.

“It was me trying to give an analogy of what I’m aspiring to be. You know, be a great man like Martin and President Obama. I’m trying to give a reference point to that. One of the things I said was I need her, in that case, Grace, to make the sacrifices,” he clarified.

Now, the youngest child of Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott King, Bernice King, has spoken out on X about her late mom that seemed directed at Jonathan Majors.

While she didn’t mention Majors’ name in her post, she reminded people that her mother, a civil rights icon, “wasn’t a prop.”

“My mother wasn’t a prop. She was a peace advocate before she met my father and was instrumental in him speaking out against the Vietnam War. Please understand…My mama was a force,” the 60-year-old wrote.

Dr. Bernice King also linked an essay about her mother in HuffPost. The 2017 article titled A Woman Purposed To Be A King explained how Coretta’s strength changed the world before and after she met her husband, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
