Terry Crews responded to outrage over his controversial tweets about the notion of “Black supremacy,” explaining his remarks came “from a spirit of love and reconciliation.”
Many celebrities are speaking their opinions publicly while multiple Black Lives Matter protests are taking place throughout the country. Terry Crews decided to address his critics on Twitter. Find out why many people are upset about the America’s Got Talent host’s Black Supremacists tweets and which actors responded to them.
The host isn’t new to angering people with his comments. Season 14 of America’s Got Talent ended with Gabrielle Union getting fired. She later claimed she tried to speak out against racist incidents while she worked on the show. Crews defended the show’s work environment.
“It just was not my experience,” he told Us Weekly. “It was the best experience I ever had in my entire life.”
The host then said, “When they talk about diversity, there was every bit of diversity on set, everywhere. I have never been in a more diverse place in 20 years of entertainment, so what can I say?”
This angered many given the investigation around Union’s firing wasn’t done. He later apologized on Twitter.
