Actor Terry Crews is taking heat from people on social media
after warning Black Lives Matter activists for turning the movement into “black lives are better.”

“If you are a child of God,” writes the “America’s Got Talent” host, “you are a brother and sister. I have family of every race, creed, and ideology. We must ensure #BlackLivesMatter doesn’t morph into #BlackLivesBetter.”

The onslaught of anger starts to brew against the “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” actor on social media shortly after the post.

Black Lives Matter activist, Kellee Nicole Terrell, writes to Crews, saying: “White people can have you, especially since you love doing their work for them.” Screenwriter Darryl Wharton-Rigby, adds: “We have officially entered The Twilight Zone on a day when [Sen.] Mitt Romney marches for [Black Lives Matter] and Terry Crews does the thing he does.”

One conservative writer tweets, “Why are people freaking out at this? He’s saying he wants to make sure the movement DOESN’T turn into that – he’s not saying it IS turning into that or should. Imagine getting mad at a black man for speaking his mind – wonder what that makes you….?”

Crews stirred the social media pot in June, tweeting, “Defeating White supremacy without White people creates Black supremacy.”
