A flier advertising a dance party using an image of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. has ignited outrage.

The flier, which shows a photo of Dr. King manipulated onto the body of a man wearing a gold chain and making a "westside" hand sign next to a caption that reads "Freedom 2 Twerk Martin Luther King Day Party."

The event was scheduled for Jan. 18 in Flint, Mich.; however, the venue's owner cancelled the party after seeing the flier.

Many have spoken out against the flier, including Dr. King's daughter Dr. Bernice King.
