Oh dang. Terry Crews is in hot water again over something he said. This morning, the America’s Got Talent host tweeted, “f you are a child of God, you are my brother and sister. I have family of every race, creed and ideology. We must ensure #blacklivesmatter doesn’t morph into #blacklivesbetter.”

It was the last sentence, “We must ensure the #blacklivesmatter doesn’t morph into #blacklivesbetter” that set the black twitter community off.

Terry initially got into trouble after siding with NBC and America’s Got Talent when fired judge Gabrielle Union accused the show of mistreatment and racism. “I can speak on behalf of any racism comments. That was never my experience on America’s Got Talent,” Terry told GMA, “In fact, it was the most diverse place I have ever been in my 20 years of entertainment.” 

Gabrielle clapped back, tweeting, “Why anyone would gleefully get up on TV and tell lies that NO ONE disputed…But we already know.” Terry doubled down with some paternalistic hoo ha “There is only one woman one earth I have to please. Her name is Rebecca. Not my mother, my sister, my daughters or co-workers. I will let their husbands/ boyfriends/ partners take care of them.” Eventually Terry apologized to her for his comments

But noooo. Terry was not done making folks angry. He tweeted “Defeating White supremacy without White people creates Black supremacy,” he wrote on Twitter. “Equality is the Truth.” 

But now, Terry appears to be tripling down on his Black Lives Matter opinions. The angry reaction sent Terry trending second on Twitter this morning. Hours later, he’s at No 6.

Check out a few of the angry reactions:

Amid the detractors, Terry had his defenders
