Terry Crews widely criticized (again) for #blacklivesbetter tweet


In replies he was called racist names, labeled “an enemy of the people,” and was accused of actually being the rich, white-loving athlete he portrayed in the Wayans brothers’ 2004 comedy “White Chicks.”


The “America’s Got Talent” TV host also got constructive feedback from people including Bernice King, the youngest daughter of civil-rights leaders Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott King.


The social media response is similar to the one Crews got earlier this month after he tweeted “Defeating White supremacy without White people creates Black Supremacy. Equality is the truth. Like it or not, we are all in this together.”
