Activist and educator Deray McKesson has been a welcome figure at the political rallies and protests that have sprung up around the tragedies in Ferguson, Baltimore and, now, Charleston. The social media figure has made it his mission to be an on-the-ground presence, sending out tweets with vital info to his 164,000 followers and calling out reporters like Wolf Blitzer, whom he recently confronted on air for being more critical of Baltimore protestors than the police. Over the weekend, his work in Charleston caught the eye of conservative trolls when the #GoHomeDeray hashtag started trending on Sunday. Naturally, his supporters have something to say.
