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.”

While the actor has been frequently attacked for his comments, he has not backed down. In fact, he recently doubled down.

On Independence Day, the actor took to Twitter to make clear that he felt there are good people in every group.

He wrote, “Are all white people bad? No. Are all black people good? No.”

He added, “Knowing this reality- I stand on my decision to unite with good people, no matter the race, creed or ideology.”

“Given the number of threats against this decision- I also decide to die on this hill,” Crews concluded.
