Terry Crews Faces Backlash for Thoughts About Black Lives Matter Movement

The 51-year-old Brooklyn Nine-Nine star spoke out on social media on Tuesday (June 30) amid nationwide protests condemning systemic racism.

“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.

The tweet garnered a lot of negative reactions and constructive feedback, including a response from Bernice King, the youngest child of Martin Luther King Jr.

“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,” she wrote.

“You are right, @BerniceKing. I just want to make sure it stays that way. No competition, just creativity. #blacklivesmatter,” Terry responded.

Here are ways to help support the Black Lives Matter cause.

Terry went viral earlier in the month for similar sentiments about the movement.
