Actor Terry Crews Faces Social Media Firestorm After His “Black Lives Better” Tweet

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 Supreme Court ruled that Donald Trump’s administration was arbitrary and capricious as it sought to end an Obama-era program to protect some 700,000 “dreamers,” or young undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children.

Chief Justice John Roberts was the swing vote in the 5-4 decision writing that, the decision was not whether the Obama-era program were “sound policies”, but whether the Department of Homeland Security followed proper procedure in rescinding the program. (Source: Deadline)

First, the brand will remove the imaging from all packaging and will rename the brand after public outcry over the brand perpetuating racial stereotypes.

The decision to rebrand comes after Aunt Jemima became a trending topic on Twitter Tuesday with many speaking out about the logo and name that have been around for 130 years.

And, on the heels of the Aunt Jemima brand image being dropped by PepsiCo, Mars is evaluating the same thing for Uncle Ben’s. Both brand images have long been viewed by some as racially insensitive.

In a statement, a spokesperson for Mars said, “As a global brand, we know we have a responsibility to take a stand in helping to put an end to racial bias and injustices. We recognize that one way we can do this is by evolving the Uncle Ben’s brand, including its visual brand identity.”

The statement continued to say, “We don’t yet know what the exact changes or timing will be, but we are evaluating all possibilities.”
