America’s Got Talent host Terry Crews trended on Twitter Sunday night (June 7) over a controversial statement he posted on the website regarding “Black Lives Matter.”

“Defeating White supremacy without White people creates Black supremacy,” he wrote on Twitter. “Equality is the Truth.”  That incoherent message set off a firestorm waged mostly by black twitter users. Terry appears to be saying that black and white people need to unite to defeat racism. But he didn’t express himself clearly. 

Check out a few of the reactions below. Maybe Terry should have taken a minute to think this one through before babbling on about “black supremacy,” which is the thing most folks took issue with.

All week, activists have been protesting police brutality after the deaths of George Floyd, who suffocated as a Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck, Breonna Taylor back in March after Louisville police erroneouly raided her house on a no-knock warrant. 

The reference to Gabrielle in one of the Tweets refers to Terry claiming there was no racism on the America’s Got Talent set after Gabrielle Union described a toxic, racist environment on set.  On Friday, Gabrielle filed a complaint in California, charging that AGT producers threatened her with reprisals if she blew the whistle.

UPDATE: Terry responds to a few of his high profile detractors

Terry worked with Tyler James Williams on the TV sitcom, Everybody Hates Chris

And then Terry continues to explain himself sticking to his use of the phrase “Black Supremacy.” His arguments make no sense. At this point, he should just take the L and move on.
