'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' star and 'America's Got Talent' host Terry Crews is being criticised for recent comments he made about the Black Lives Matter movement.

Terry Crews tweeted yesterday: "If you are a child of God, you are my brother and sister. I have family of every race, creed and ideology.

"We must ensure #blacklivesmatter doesn’t morph into #blacklivesbetter"


Many Twitter users immediately clapped back at the actor for his comments.

One said the statement was "the very definition of a strawman argument."

Another noted: "No one wants to be better. We want to be treated fairly and equal." An additional tweeter added: "Demanding Black equality is not Black supremacy."


Crews also landed himself in hot water earlier this month over comments about "Black supremacy" on Twitter.

He had written: "Defeating White supremacy without White people creates Black supremacy. Equality is the truth. Like it or not, we are all in this together."

Representatives for Crews have not made a comment at this time.
