Terry Crews is  latest celebrity that is facing possible  “cancel culture” after tweeting Sunday night, in part, that “defeating white supremacy without White people creates Black supremacy.”
He added, “Equality is the truth” and “Like it or not, we are all in this together.”

Terry Crews quickly found himself trending on social media and had his former cast mate from “Everybody Hates Chris” address him over the statement. Tyler James Williams, who played Crews’ TV son on Everybody Hates Chris, issued a lengthy response to Crews’ initial comment, writing in a series of tweets, “Terry, brother, I know your heart and you know I have love for you and always will. 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.”

While Williams said he was not “trying to call out” Crews, saying it’s “all love always,” he concluded his message: “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 diverted from the cause.”

Crews replied to the tweets, saying, “I understand, Tyler. I was not saying Black supremacy exists, 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 replied to author and human rights activist Kevin Powell, who wrote of the actor’s initial tweet: “This makes absolutely no sense, makes very Black self-hating assumption that Black folks would actually try to do harm to White people in major ways, when there is no proof in history of any such behavior even remotely close to White supremacist behavior. Please read books, sir.”
The actor answered simply, “That’s not what I’m saying Kevin. At all.” When Powell replied again, saying, “Terry, with all due respect, given your platform, you cannot just post something like that even remotely suggests that Black people would fall into ‘Black Supremacy’ if we battle White Supremacy without White people.”
Crews wrote back soon after: “Kevin, I’ve learned that people will take anything you say and twist it for their own evil. Anything.”
