Xzibit Upset Over ‘Planking,’ Says Act Linked to Slave Trade

The rather bizarre internet craze known as ‘planking,’ in which celebrities (i.e. Chris Brown, Nick Cannon, Joe Budden, Big Sean) and lay persons alike turn their bodies into stiff board-like planks over and across various objects, has had its fair share of criticism — especially because it’s just plain weird. But rapper Xzibit is taking planking to task by calling it a racially motivated institution.


The purveyor of pimped rides has now called out TMZ for exploiting the MC’s opinions of planking, stating in a subsequent tweet,”Wow. They are trying to make me the Al Sharpton of planking. #news?” Regardless of his internet tussles, Xzibit really doesn’t care how you plank around.

“Don’t get it twisted. I care less where your dumb a—- lay face down and take pictures of the s—, I’m just telling you where it came from,” the rapper tweeted.
