Terry Crews has been attacked on Twitter, with many wanting him to be canceled due to his recent tweet about the Black Lives Matter movement.
The “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star took to social media on Tuesday (June 30) to promote equality. However, his post was used by many against him.
“If you are a child of God, you are my brother and sister. I have family of every race, creed and ideology. We must ensure #blacklivesmatter doesn’t morph into #blacklivesbetter,” he wrote on Twitter.
Many reacted negatively to the post and some even questioned it. Meanwhile, others wanted the “America’s Got Talent” host to be canceled because of it.
“Terry. what in the actual hell? this is the very definition of a strawman argument. why would you suggest a movement created to advocate for the prosecution of cops/citizens responsible for racially motivated killings could some how morph into ‘we’re better,’” Franchesca Ramsey commented.
“I wish cancel culture was real so Terry Crews would have been canceled at one of his prior 72 bad takes and we wouldn’t end up here,” another user added.
“I honestly ain’t helping y’all cancel nobody anymore until we get terry crews tf outta here!” another wrote.
“Terry Crews may be the first person we actually cancel,” a different netizen stated.
However, many also supported Crews amid the backlash. According to other netizens, he was only campaigning for equality and there was nothing wrong in his message.
“The fact that the black community is trying to cancel Terry Crews for calling out what the BLM is turning into speaks volumes. I support his message 100%. Equality not superiority,” @McKaylaRoseJ wrote.
“I was wondering why Terry Crews was being ‘canceled’ in comments on Twitter, only to find out it was over a message about equality. Equality means equal, not better than. It’s why I was so against ‘believe all women’ because it unfairly makes a woman’s word worth more than a man,” Mindy Robinson added.
This isn’t the first time Crews was attacked online over a tweet. Last month, he also faced backlash over his “black supremacy” tweet.
