‘White People Can Have Him’: Fans Cancel Terry Crews After Actor Announced B-L-M Could Turn Into ‘Black Lives Better’

Former NFL-player turned actor Terry Crews may be suffering from “foot-in-mouth” syndrome, as he continues to rile social media up with his posts.  The “America’s Got Talent” host hasn’t had a great presence on social media after receiving constant backlash for offensive comments directed towards the BLM movement as well as his lack of support for actress and former AGT judge Gabrielle Union.

The actor’s Twitter has been the center of alarming and controversial statements over 2020, especially around the time when protests were consistently taking over the streets.  “If you are a child of God, you are my brother and sister. I have family of every race, creed and ideology,” Crews tweeted before adding that the movement should ensure it “doesn’t morph into #blacklivesbetter.”

Responses began to flood Crews, including from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s youngest daughter, Bernice King.  His comments also have prompted rapper Wale to address him in his latest release, “Good Vibes (Za)”, where he slanders the actor within the first verse for his sentiments.  A wide majority of social media users also have unanimously agreed that Crews’s comments were problematic.  Statements from “white people can have him” to “we just want to be treated fair and equal” echoed across Twitter.

“Its actually embarrassing how intent you are at undermining people who are fighting for their humanity to be viewed EQUALLY,” commented a Twitter user. “Nobody is taking it there except you & those uncomfortable with having to address the elephant in the room. I implore you please do better, this ain’t it.

Gabrielle Union appeared as a guest on Jemele Hill’s podcast, Jemele Hill Is Unbothered, where she gave her opinion on the controversy surrounding Crews.”People were like, ‘Well, you weren’t the only Black person on America’s Got Talent, and I was like, ‘No, I was on there with Terry Crews.’ Based on his recent actions, do you really think Terry Crews was an ally, was helpful, was a sounding board? I think Terry Crews is showing us who he is and what he does during times of adversity, and it’s not solidarity,” she said.
