Twitter once again took time out to drag actor Terry Crews after he posted a ridiculous tweet criticizing the #BlackLivesMatter tweet — warning that it can’t turn into #BlackLivesBetter.
“If you are a child of God, you are my brother and sister. I have family of every race, creed and ideology,” he tweeted Tuesday. “We must ensure #blacklivesmatter doesn’t morph into #blacklivesbetter.”
His tweet was so ridiculous that even Bernice A. King, the daughter of slain civil rights activist, Martin Luther King Jr. — couldnt help but jump into the argument.
“We’re so far from that bridge, Terry,” she tweeted in response. “#BlackLivesMatter is, in part, a rallying cry and a protest slogan to galvanize people into doing the justice work needed to derail the deaths, dehumanization and destruction of Black lives that racism causes. Justice is not a competition.”
He retweeted and agreed with her tweet — but the damage was already done.
