Caught on Tape: Eddie Long of New Birth Crowned “King.” We Can’t Make This Up.

For those of you who did not see the much talked about Eddie Long crowned ‘king’ video, Worldstarhiphop.com shared it on its website. Youtube had the video as well, but pulled it.

UPDATE since the January 2012 show at New Birth Baptist Church (ATL)…

CNN Reports:

Bishop Eddie Long has apologized to the Anti-Defamation League over an incident in which he was wrapped in a Torah scroll and crowned “king.” As shown in a video that went viral, the televangelist was wrapped in a “Holocaust Torah” and crowned king during a recent ceremony at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, his suburban Atlanta congregation.

“The ceremony was not my suggestion, nor was it my intent, to participate in any ritual that is offensive in any manner to the Jewish community, or any group. Furthermore, I sincerely denounce any action that depicts me as a King, for I am merely just a servant of the Lord,” Long wrote in a letter dated Saturday.
