Actor and former NFL player Terry Crews is being criticized for saying Black Lives Matter must not morph into, “Black Lives Better” on social media on Tuesday.
Bernice King, the daughter of civil rights leader Martin Luther King responded in part that the Black Lives Matter movement is “a rallying cry” and that “justice is not a competition;” to which Crews replied, “You are right, @BerniceKing. I just want to make sure it stays that way. No competition, just creativity.”
Journalist Roland Martin invited Terry onto his “Unfiltered Daily Digital Show” to talk about the tweet, the backlash, and to give Terry a chance to explain what he meant:
The Michigan native is currently the host of “American’s Got Talent” and also stars in the New York police comedy “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.”
