Xzibit has declared his hatred for ‘Planking’ after proclaiming on Twitter that the craze actually originates from the slave trade.


Xzibit (real name Alvin Nathaniel Joiner IV, no lie) – who is famous for pimping cars – has stated on Twitter that he thinks planking is dumb (check out our introduction to Planking here). Xzibit said that he hates planking because of it’s racist roots, claiming that planking was a way to transport slaves on ships during the slave trade.

He’s probably got major beef with funny man Tom Green now it’s been revealed that Tom actually invented Planking years ago.

I agree with Xzibit that planking is a really dumb but I’m not sure about the connections with the slave trade. I did find this picture of some slaves lying down on a ship but who’s to say this is where planking originated from? I hope I don’t get accused of being racist by X next time lie down for a quick snooze.

Anyway dawg here’s a video of Big Dane, the real star of Pimp My Ride:
