CNN host Don Lemon had actor Terry Crews on his show on Monday to further explain the tweets he sent that were critical of the Black Lives Matter movement. Crews said he had decided he was going to "die on this hill."
Crews told Lemon there are militant factions with the BLM movement and it seems as though people are supposed to not criticize the leaders of the group, despite espousing some incendiary rhetoric. He also takes issue with how the movement does not seem to care about the black people who are killed by fellow blacks.
"You know, black people need to hold other black people accountable. I said the same thing — this is the black America’s version of the #MeToo movement. If anything’s going to change, we, ourselves, need to look at our own communities and look at each other. And say this thing cannot go down," Crews said.
Are all white people bad?— terry crews (@terrycrews) July 4, 2020
Are all black people good?
Knowing this reality- I stand on my decision to unite with good people, no matter the race, creed or ideology.
Given the number of threats against this decision-
I also decide to die on this hill.
"The Black Lives Matter movement was started because it was talking about police brutality. If you want an All Black Lives Matter movement that talks about gun violence in communities, including, you know, black communities, then, start that movement with that name," Lemon responded.
