Civil rights icon and Georgia representative John Lewis has been called 'a racist pig' in a Facebook by a white, Republican commissioner in the state.
The remarks by Tommy Hunter, a member of the Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners, came after Lewis said at the weekend he would boycott Donald Trump's inauguration, sparking an online row.
