Although Rick didn’t elaborate further on his feelings about Terry in the song, many have assumed that the rapper was referring to recent comments that the actor made about the Black Lives Matter movement. In his comments, he suggested that the movement could create more racial disparity and eventually lead to a Black supremacy movement.
“Are all white people bad? No. Are all Black people good? No. 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,” Terry wrote on Twitter. “Defeating white supremacy without white people creates Black supremacy. Equality is the truth. Like it or not, we are all in this together.”
“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,” Terry concluded.
Since he first posted his comments, the Brooklyn Nine-Nine actor has faced a wave of backlash from activists who believe that he has misinterpreted what the Black Lives Matter movement stands for.
