Terry Crews Apologizes For Controversial Black Lives Matters Tweets He Made Following George Floyd’s Murder

Terry Crews is apologizing for his controversial Black Lives Matter tweets.

On Wednesday, Crews appeared on “The Daily Show With Trevor Noah,” where he shared his regrets about the tweets. During the summer of 2020, Crews tweeted some things following the murder of George Floyd that didn’t sit right with most.

“I’m gonna let you know. I really do want to apologize to anybody who was offended by these tweets and was hurt deeply,” Crews began. “Because as an example. As an African American man. A Black man here in this country. I did not want to give the perception that we’re supposed to gloss this over and forgive the death of George Floyd, the murder of George Floyd. And I want to apologize to everyone who was ever offended because it hurt.”

Crews defended his tweets at the time but now admits his timing was off.

“I just wanted peace. And I guess it goes back to my approval. It goes back to my need for approval. It went back to that,” the actor continued. “And again, it was a mistake. It was a mistake to tweet that out at that time. The need is for us as a people to actually come together and really, really be what we need to be to this country because it’s our country. This is our country. We died and fought, and I’m not giving it away. This is our inheritance.”

The controversial tweets are still up on his Twitter account. Read what Crews said below:
