Terry Crews condemned by Martin Luther King's daughter as outrage grows over his latest Black Lives Matter remarks

Terry Crews is known for speaking up on issues that are important to him.

Over the last few years we’ve seen him describe his experience of being sexually assaulted in a bid to help other men in similar situations. He's been pretty open about "toxic masculinity" too.

But he’s also got himself into a fair few controversies, such as his comments on children with same-sex parents being "malnourished" and also remarks he made about “Black supremacy" in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death.

Now Crews has intervened in the Black Lives Matter debate again. And let’s just say his remarks haven’t gone down so well.

On Twitter, Crews said that it’s important that #BlackLivesMatter doesn’t become Black Lives “better”.

People obviously responded to this remark. Martin Luther King Jr's daughter, Bernice King, was one of the first to call him out.

And lots of other Black people concurred, pointing out what they felt were flaws in Crews's logic.

It doesn't look like Crews's interest in this topic, or the disappointment in some of his views on it, is going to change any time soon.
