Martin Luther King's daughter Bernice King has emphatically stated that her mom 'wasn't a prop' in response to Jonathan Majors referring to Meagan Good as his 'Coretta,'

While honouring her late mother Coretta Scott King, she posted a tweet, by kicking off, “My mother wasn’t a prop.”

The 60-year-old American lawyer added, “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.”

Although Bernice did not provide details about the motivation behind her social media post, it followed ABC News airing a pre-recorded interview with Jonathan Majors on Monday.

In the interview, the former Marvel star referred to his present girlfriend, Meagan Good, as "a Coretta."

The 34-year-old actor said to ABC News Live’s Linsey Davis, “She’s an angel.”

He went on to say, “She’s held me down like a Coretta [Scott King]. I’m so blessed to have her,” adding, “The relationship is still fresh but you know, I think I found her.”

In the previous month, the Loki actor was convicted of assaulting his former girlfriend, Grace Jabbari.

Throughout the widely covered legal proceedings, recordings were played wherein Majors urged Jabbari to emulate the mannerisms of Coretta or Michelle Obama.

Meagan Good, 42, stood beside him during numerous court appearances.

It is pertinent to mention that earlier, on Martin Luther King Jr. Day in 2022, Bernice asked that the nation remember her mother also.

"As you honor my father today, please remember and honor my mother, as well," she wrote on X.

Bernice stated, "She was the architect of the King Legacy and founder of @TheKingCenter, which she founded two months after Daddy was assassinated," adding, "Without #CorettaScottKing, there would be no #MLKDay."
