Terry Crews has gotten in trouble for saying dumb shit in the past. He called the children of gay parents “malnourished” because of their lack of both genders raising them. He also stepped in it when he claimed the set of America’s Got Talent was a beautiful, “diverse” environment free of racial discrimination after we heard otherwise from Gabrielle Union. Terry had to apologize to the LGBTQ+ community for saying we’re bad parents. And he had to apologize to Gabrielle for “invalidating” her.
So after all that, you’d think he’d be done, right? That’s enough controversies for one person who clearly is trying to grow? Obviously not. Because while everyone is protesting for racial equality, Terry chose to declare that “Black Supremacy” is a threat and we need to protect white people from it. How does the movie White Chicks have a more realistic grasp of race relations than Terry Crews?
Complex says that Terry got himself trending on Twitter yesterday after tweeting about the dangers facing white people today. Terry looked at the people rising up to fight against systemic racial violence and decided the Caucasians were the ones who needed the help.
Defeating White supremacy without White people creates Black supremacy. Equality is the truth.
Like it or not, we are all in this together.

Well, people had to tell this adult Black man that “black supremacy” is not possible since–you know… hundreds of years of history?

So, brother: here's why your tweet is a problem:
1. Black supremacy isnt possible unless we rewrite the last millennium.
2. Who's doing this without whites? Plenty of allies
3. Your voice is too big to tweet so inaccurately,
unproductively & provide cover for white supremacy

Meanwhile, other people just roasted the shit out of Terry, including Rome Flynn from How To Get Away With Murder:

Terry doesn’t seem to know what his real message is because he also put this up on Instagram:

This put me in a GREAT mood! This was just too incredible! A nod to my #EverybodyHatesChris days! Honored! #Repost @far.out.designs ・・・ Stand for Justice. Stand for Peace. I reimagined @terrycrews as the Dark Knight himself. Seems fitting and I’ll be dammed if his smile isn’t the most contagious and inspiring in the biz.
Look at that Black Supremacist Batman fanart. I’m curious to know what Black Supremacy is like. Are CrossFit classes outlawed? Using salt & pepper as your only seasoning becomes a capital offense? Swearing at your parents earns you life in prison? The entire casts of Friends, Frasier, and Seinfeld have all their assets seized and given to Black people? Let us know Terry!
