Terry Crews again faced heated criticism on Tuesday over a tweet about the possible direction of the Black Lives Matter movement.
“If you are a child of God, you are my brother and sister. I have family of every race, creed and ideology,” the actor tweeted. “We must ensure #blacklivesmatter doesn’t morph into #blacklivesbetter.”
His comment ― like one he made earlier this month voicing concerns about “Black supremacy” ― drew swift and harsh backlash.
It prompted Bernice King, daughter of Martin Luther King Jr., to respond, “We’re so far from that bridge, Terry.”
She explained in her tweet:
We’re so far from that bridge, Terry. #BlackLivesMatter is, in part, a rallying cry and a protest slogan to galvanize people into doing the justice work needed to derail the deaths, dehumanization and destruction of Black lives that racism causes.
Justice is not a competition. https://t.co/Cdfac2V7M6
