Terry Crews has stirred up a social media storm after posting a controversial tweet about “black supremacy.”

The Brooklyn Nine-Nine star became a top trending topic Sunday evening on Twitter, after sharing his thoughts on race relations and the nationwide protests following the police killing of George Floyd.

“Defeating White supremacy without White people creates Black supremacy. Equality is the truth. Like it or not, we are all in this together,” Crews tweeted.

The post immediately sparked anger, with many people accusing crews of gaslighting and being in the “sunken place.”

“Black supremacy?” actor Orlando Jones replied. “We represent 13% of US population, hold no institutional power & gaslight our coworkers. We got 99 problems and your math isn’t the only 1. #StrongerTogether.”


Another Twitter user responded: “I hope racist whites are going to ride for you because I won’t be supporting anything Terry Crews from this point forward. You already showed your ASS with the Gabby Union situation and now this?! You clearly WANT to be in the sunken place.”

Author Frederick Joseph replied, “Every time I think Terry Crews has done the worst, he always does more.”

Someone else tweeted: “Dear @terrycrews GET OUT! Get out of the sunken place.”

This isn’t the first time Crews has sparked backlash. The actor, who also hosts America’s Got Talent, came under fire in November following Gabrielle Union’s exit from the series.

Union was fired from the NBC competition show after expressing concerns about an alleged “toxic” culture on set. Crews’ response — a tweet saying: “You’re the best, Gabrielle! You will be missed!”

Many social media users called the actor’s response “disappointing,” especially after Union publicly supported him in 2017 when he revealed he’d been sexually assaulted.

Last week Union filed a discrimination complaint against America’s Got Talent and NBC.
