Crews, for its part, also took to Twitter to respond to a number of people who were calling him for his tweet.

First, he replied to Tyler James Williams (The Walking Dead, Dear White People), who said, “I’m not trying to call you @terrycrews. You know it’s always love. But we are legitimately angry right now and fed up with someone who doesn’t have our cause whole at heart. I don’t want to see that energy pointed at you or diverted from the cause.

Comedian Godfrey also had something to say, adding: “I love you like a friend brother Terry. But I don’t agree with you 100%. No black supremacy. It’s a tactic that racist whites use to thwart our rebellion at their horrible treatment of us. This is called gas lighting. Black pride is not anti-white.
