Deadpool 2 actor and Brooklyn Nine-Nine actor Terry Crews has come under fire for issuing a warning about the Black Lives Matter movement.
Crews previously came under fire for a tweet earlier in June where he wrote, “Defeating White supremacy without White people creates Black supremacy. Equality is the truth.”
Defeating White supremacy without White people creates Black supremacy. Equality is the truth.
Like it or not, we are all in this together.

In fact, Crews would go on to explain his comments citing Rwanda in an appearance on The Talk.
Now, Crews is under fire for warning that Black Lives Matter doesn’t morph into Black Lives Better.
He wrote on Twitter, “If you are a child of God, you are my brother and sister. I have family of every race, creed and ideology.”
He added, “We must ensure #blacklivesmatter doesn’t morph into #blacklivesbetter.”
If you are a child of God, you are my brother and sister. I have family of every race, creed and ideology.

Many have gone on the attack against Crews for this tweet.
That NBC money can’t be that good for you to be acting like such a sorry, “Black ok?” ass clown. You are disappointing as hell and you are pic.twitter.com/TSy5ShFCdo

You have heard of the phrase “cross that bridge when you come to it?” Correct? You keep putting out this energy but we’re still seeing black ppl killed senselessly so like…read the room, Terry.

You truly are worthless to us. White people can have you, especially since you love doing their work for them

Eugene Gu insinuated that Crews hates black people and worships white people.
There are Asian Americans who hate their own community and worship white people too. Guess white supremacy cuts across all races, creeds, and ideologies.

One person claimed Crews was microagressing the Black Lives Matter movement.
I dont understand why ur posts are so pandering to (unfounded) arguments against the BLM movement. No one, NOT A DAMN SOUL, said #blacklivesbetter.
This is being willfully destructive, disingenuous, w microaggressions towards BLM. I tire of saying “do better”….but DO BETTER.

Another told Crews to get help.
You’re a prime example of why a lack of self love is not only self destructive but detrimental for others around you. Please seek help.
