*A daughter of Al Sharpton just got busted climbing a mountain when her ankle is supposed to have been severely sprained, as she claims in her current $5 million lawsuit against the City of New York.
The New York Post reports Dominique Sharpton filed the lawsuit after she tripped on uneven pavement, allegedly injuring the foot.
“I sprained my ankle real bad lol,” she wrote in a post to Instagram after the Oct. 2 fall.
Sharpton, the membership director for her father’s National Action Network, claims she “still suffers and will continue to suffer for some time physical pain and bodily injuries,” according to the suit filed against the city departments of Transportation and Environmental Protection.
The Post, however, points out her recent Instagram post, in which she proudly professes to have climbed a mountain while on vacation in Bali.
Dominique Sharpton posted pictures to Instagram showing she completed a difficult mountain climb in Bali, Indonesia — even though her suit says that “she still suffers” debilitating pain after twisting her ankle in a street crack in Soho last year.
She didn’t seem to realize that her mountaineering exploits might undermine her legal claims as she bragged online about the difficulty of her ascent.
“We hiked UP the mountain, over the clouds… into the SUNRISE,” Dominique, 28, wrote in the May 16 post.
