Christian African-American Actor Criticized for Warning About Black Lives Matter

Hollywood star Terry Crews, who is black, is facing social media backlash again because he warned Black Lives Matter activists against turning the movement into "black lives are better."

"If you are a child of God," wrote 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."

One writer and Black Lives Matter activist, Kellee Nicole Terrell, responded to Crews, whom she said is "worthless to us." She added, "White people can have you, especially since you love doing their work for them."

Journalist and podcaster Ira Madison described the Christian actor as "truly embarrassing" because he keeps "displaying your poor reading comprehension and lack of critical thinking."

Twitter user Melody Kewl told Crews, "You could have left out that last sentence," claiming, "No one wants to be better. We want to be treated fairly and equal."
