As racial tensions in this country remains high, it seems as if everyone has their own opinion, including America’s Got Talent host Terry Crews. And some of those opinions are rubbing people the wrong way.

It all started on Sunday (June 7,) when Crews headed to his social media to talk about how to defeat white supremacy as protests surrounding George Floyd’s death continues.

“Defeating White supremacy without White people creates Black supremacy,” Crews wrote on his Twitter page. “Equality is the truth. Like it or not, we are all in this together.”

The 51-year-old’s comments were met with nothing short of outrage, leaving Crews with no other choice than to clarify his comments.

“I was not saying Black supremacy exists, because it doesn’t,” he wrote. “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.”

After waiting to see if the uproar would die down, Crews went back on Twitter on Monday (June 8) to not only further clarify his thoughts, but express his love to his fans.

“Please know that everything I’ve said comes from a spirit of love and reconciliation, for the Black community first, then the world as a whole, in hopes to see a better future for Black people,” he wrote. “I believe it is important we not suffer from groupthink, and we keep minds of our own, and be allowed to ask difficult questions to each other,” Crews added. “I believe this dialogue is important as we get through this trauma together. I love you.”
