John Boyega Applauded For Shutting Down Claim He’s Using His Platform To ‘Spout Hate Against White People’
The Star Wars Actor has been vocal on Social Media about the racism faced by Black people, particularly following the tragic death of George Floyd in the US last week.
But while John has received huge support for his posts, one of his followers accused the British star of “jumping on the bandwagon”.
“You are not even American,” they wrote. “As disgusting, sad and bad as it was with #GeorgeFloyd you just using excuse to spout hate against White people.”Clearly not having any it, John wrote back around an hour later: “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,” John added. “So keep your dutty mouth shut.”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.— John Boyega (@JohnBoyega) June 1, 2020His response was met with praise by many of his fans on Twitter:I stand by you brother— Johnny Ortiz (@major_payne31) June 1, 2020Thank you. Keep fighting for change.— Ricardo Lundi (@ricardodpm) June 2, 2020Energy!! 💉— Woo. (@TheVictoriaNYC) June 1, 2020🤣🤣 do you know who you’re talking to?!?!?! You’re talking to a man who made a Star Wars film and people were mad about it! Why? Because of the color of his skin! You don’t think he has a right to say something about this!?!?! Just amazing 🤯🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️— Natally Perez (@natlovesyou1217) June 2, 2020Last week, John made headlines when he tweeted that he “fucking hates racists”, and received an alarming amount of criticism from his followers, from those lambasting his choice of language or pointing out that racism affects many communities.
Doubling down on his original comments, John then went live on Instagram, stating: “A Black man was just murdered in cold blood in the streets Stateside. Again. While saying that he can’t breathe.
“That’s a continuous cycle going on and although I don’t live in the States, brother, I’m Black. Fuck that. So I’ll say it again, fuck you racist white people. I said what I said. And if you don’t fucking like it, go suck a dick. Seriously.
“It’s not about career, it’s not about money, ’cause a lot of people like to bring that up… all those things were just a part of my dream. A part of working. That’s got nothing to do with how you treat people. It’s a madness.”John Boyega on Instagram live and dragging the hell out of white racists. this is what I live for! pic.twitter.com/nQytbhnzM7— c (@chuuzus) May 27, 2020Since Floyd’s death, mass protests have broken out all over the world against police brutality, and in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.
A number of stars have spoken out in support of the protests, including Beyoncé and Adele, the latter of whom shared a post on Instagram earlier this week.
