Terry Crews Called 'C**n' Over Controversial 'Black Supremacy' Tweets

Among the critics is ‘Whiskey Cavalier’ actor Tyler James Williams, saying to Crews, ‘No one is calling 4 black supremacy and the narrative that we are hurts our cause and our people.’

Terry Crews sparked outrage with his recent tweet about “Black supremacy.” The “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star called for a unity to end racial injustice on Sunday night, June 7, but the tweet rubbed people the wrong way as he mentioned about “Black supremacy.”

“Defeating White supremacy without White people creates Black supremacy. Equality is the truth. Like it or not, we are all in this together,” Crews wrote, much to everyone’s dismay. Among the critics was “Whiskey Cavalier” actor Tyler James Williams.

“Terry, brother, I know your heart and you know I have love for you and always will,” he wrote on Twitter to the “America’s Got Talent” host. “No one is calling 4 black supremacy & the narrative that we are hurts our cause & our people. We’re just vigorously vetting our ‘allies’ because time & time again they have failed us in the past.”

He added, “I’m not trying to call you out @terrycrews. You know it’s all love always. But we’re rightfully angry right now and fed up with anyone not with our cause wholeheartedly. I don’t want to see that energy pointed your way or divereted from the cause.”

In response to James’ tweet, Crews said, “I understand, Tyler. I was not saying Black supermacy exist, because it doesn’t. I am saying if both Black and Whites don’t continue to work together– bad attitudes and resentments can create a dangerous self-righteousness. That’s all.”

Crews also explained to Godfrey that he wasn’t “discussing white people here. there are ‘gatekeepers of Blackness’ within our own community who decide who’s Black and who’s not.” He continued, “I have often been called out for not being ‘black enough’. How can that be?”

Defending himself, Crews added in a separate tweet, “Any Black person who calls me a c**n ot and Uncle Tom for promoting EQUALITY is a Black Supremist, because they have determined who’s Black and who is not.”
