Pops should not have to fight all his life!

Marketing guru Mz Skittlez is outraged and jumped on IG to reveal pictures of her bloodied and battered elderly father who was assaulted by a councilman on Monday.

Her father Art McKoy is a community activist. He also founded the group Black on Black Crime Inc. He claims that on a visit to Home Depot, he was confronted by East Cleveland City Council President Twon Billings.

As it turns out, a few minced words quickly turned into a violent brawl that left McKoy battered and bloodied.

“My father has been an activist in East Cleveland, fighting Black-on-Black crime, finding lost kids and Antwon Billings had the nerve to almost kill my father with a punch? You broke my father’s nose, fractured his eye and left him with a concussion…” Mz Skittlez, whose real name is Mary Seats, said on IG.

According to WKYC, McKoy is an 80-year-old Vietnam War veteran. He claims that Billings aggressively got in his face and ignited the confrontation.

“He didn’t like the conversation, he threatened me, he poked his fingers in my eyes, I did not touch him, and then he punched me with his fist in my eye,” McKoy later said on Facebook Live.

Now the East Cleveland community is calling for Billings’ removal and marched to City Hall in protest.

“For me to get my eye almost knocked out, my nose broke, and my face, it’s just unexcusable (sic),” McKoy told 3News.

“Anyone else would be in jail,” Hank Davis said. “(There) ain’t no reason why somebody who wasn’t even elected (to his seat) in the first place can still hold that position.”
