John Boyega is not here for accusations, we repeat, John Boyega is not here for the accusations, as he put a hater in their place this week – after previously speaking his mind on the death of George Floyd.
Last week the Star Wars actor served some truth bombs on racism, following the death of 46-year-old Floyd in Minneapolis after a police officer was filmed kneeling on his neck for eight minutes.
Now John’s on a roll as he served up quite the rebuttal to one follower who accused him of using the Black Lives Matter demonstrations, sparked by Floyd’s death, as an ‘excuse’ to ‘spout hate against white people’.
They wrote: ‘Stop jumping on the bandwagon, you are not even American. As disgusting, sad and bad as it was with #GeorgeFloyd you just using excuse to spout hate against White people.’
Yeah, that was never going to fly with John, as he shot back on Monday: ‘Yet I have family and friends there who could be any one of the victims of things don’t change.
‘Yet I work there 6 months of the year and I don’t want to work in fear.
‘You don’t know a thing about me. So keep your dutty mouth shut.’
He earlier doubled down on a tweet he had posted that said: ‘I f**king hate racists,’ by sharing an Instagram Live video where he refused to apologise for his comment.
John said: ‘I hate racists with a passion. It’s very important at this time that we ignore ignorance. That we ignore people who come through and try to make these situations what they’re not.
‘I’m not even apologising first of all, you lot better f**king believe that, there is no way that I have the opinion that there are no other forms of racism. Of course there are other forms of racism.
‘But, a black man was just murdered in cold blood in the street Stateside again, while saying that he can’t breathe. That’s a continuous cycle going on – although I don’t live in the States, I’m black. F**k that.’
However, even though John strongly defended his comments, it seemed while doing so, one user decided to report his tweets.
Not that any complaints or reported tweets were going to stop him, as he shared Twitter’s response to the complaint, confirming he hadn’t violated any of the rules, and captioned it: ‘Off to the shops. Does anyone want anything?’
John had previously spoken out about Floyd’s heartbreaking death.
Paying tribute to Floyd like many other celebrities, John wrote: ‘George Floyd. So heartbreaking to hear about the continuous cycle of violence aimed at black people by racist cops. Murder charges only.’
