Directors Support John Boyega After He Says Career Could Be Ruined Over His Participation in Black Lives Matter Protest

Star WarsJohn Boyega gave an impassioned speech at a Black Lives Matter protest this week in London, England, where he exclaimed, “Look, I don’t know if I’m going to have a career after this, but f*ck that.”

Soon, several directors began throwing their support behind John to let him know they will still work with him and support the cause.

Get Out‘s Jordan Peele tweeted, “We got you, John,” which was retweeted by The Shape of Water director Guillermo del Toro.

Edgar Wright posted “Have before and would again, in a heartbeat. So proud of John today.”

“I would crawl through a barrel of broken glass to have John Boyega even so much as glance at one of my scripts,” Charlie Brooker, the creator of the Black Mirror, also added on his Twitter account.
