Actor Terry Crews has been criticised for saying the Black Lives Matter movement must not “morph into Black Lives Better”.
The Brooklyn Nine-Nine star and America’s Got Talent host, who is black, tweeted: “If 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.”
The tweet drew strong criticism on social media. Comedian Amanda Seales, who hosted Sunday’s BET Awards, accused Crews of becoming an “enemy of the people”.
She said: “This is unintellectual and irresponsible. You are developing into an enemy of the people. Ignorance will be your downfall.”
