On Tuesday, Terry Crews tweeted a message which — not that long ago — would’ve garnered praise:

“If you are a child of God, you are my brother and sister. I have family of every race, creed and ideology.”

But he added this as well, and it no doubt secured a souring among critics.

“We must ensure #blacklivesmatter doesn’t morph into #blacklivesbetter”

In fact, outspoken medical man Dr. Eugene Gu appeared to call the black entertainer a white supremacist:

“There are Asian Americans who hate their own community and worship white people too. Guess white supremacy cuts across all races, creeds, and ideologies.”

If you’re unfamiliar with Crews, he’s a guy who stands practically alone in Hollywood (his only semi-contemporary being Guardians of the Galaxy’s Dave Bautista): Terry’s a mammoth mountain of muscle who’s right at home with an automatic shotgun in The Expendables (Language Warning)…

And he’s also — and this is a real feat — absolutely hilarious.

For more on that, see Brooklyn Nine-Nine or — better yet — his performance in White Chicks:

The above probably doesn’t help his situation, and some on social media certainly aren’t laughing.

Here’s a gaggle of naysayers’ No’s:

Someone even matched him up with another controversial character of late:

It’s not Terry’s first brush with the brush-off. As covered by RedState’s Kira Davis, he got “dragged” for a June 7th tweet championing equality and togetherness:

A small sampling:

Back to Tuesday’s tweet, many, of course, embraced it.

We’re at a really strange point in time. The 80’s and 90’s saw a surge in messages of racial unity and colorblindness. Thirty years later, some appear to be insisting we’re not way past that, but rather, far before it.

In a way upon which we can all agree, will we ever be past it?
