The legendary boxer's son called the Black Lives Matter movement "racist."
The son of late boxing legend Muhammad Ali said his dad would have disagreed with the current Black Lives Matter movement, going so far as to call the protesters "devils."
During a lengthy interview with New York Post, Muhammad Ali Jr. spoke out about the rioting that followed some of the protests calling for police reform and racial quality in the wake of George Floyd's death, saying his father would be "sickened" by it.
"Don't bust up s--t, don't trash the place," he told the outlet. "You can peacefully protest. My father would have said, 'They ain't nothing but devils.' My father said, 'all lives matter.' I don't think he'd agree."
Ali -- who died in 2016 -- was a conscientious objector to the Vietnam War and became a high-profile figure in the civil rights movement of America.
In regards to the current Black Lives Matter movement, Ali Jr. said, "I think it's racist."
"It's not just black lives matter, white lives matter, Chinese lives matter, all lives matter, everybody's life matters. God loves everyone -- he never singled anyone out. Killing is wrong no matter who it is."
"It's a racial statement," he continued. "It's pitting black people against everyone else. It starts racial things to happen -- I hate that."
