Terry Crews is out and about promoting his new book, “Tough,” and during a recent visit to “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah,” he apologized for those wildly offensive Black Lives Matter tweets.

You may recall, during the summer of 2020 as the world was protesting the murder of George Floyd, Terry took to the streets of Twitter and wrote:

Defeating White supremacy without White people creates Black supremacy. Equality is the truth.

Like it or not, we are all in this together.

Any Black person who calls me a c**n or and Uncle Tom for promoting EQUALITY is a Black Supremacist, because they have determined who’s Black and who is not. 

Please know that everything I’ve said comes from a spirit of love and reconciliation, for the Black community first, then the world as a whole, in hopes to see a better future for Black people. 

A few weeks later, he dropped off this tweet:

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

See the original tweets below. 

While chatting with Trevor Noah, Terry Crews apologized for the tweets calling them a “mistake.”

I’m gonna let you know, I really do want to apologize to anybody who was offended by these tweets, and was hurt deeply.

Because as an example, as an African American man, a Black man here in this country, I did not want to give the perception that we’re supposed to gloss this over and forgive the death of George Floyd, the murder of George Floyd. 

And I want to apologize to everyone right now who was ever offended because it hurt.

I just wanted peace. And I guess it goes back to my approval. It goes back to my need for approval, it went back to that.

And again, it was a mistake. It was a mistake to tweet that out at that time.

Terry also shared what he was trying to convey with these wild tweets.

The need is for us as a people to actually come together and really, really be what we need to be to this country, because it’s our country. This is our country.

We died and fought, and I’m not giving it away. This is our inheritance.

I don’t believe this apology is going to move the crowd for a few reasons…

The apology comes nearly two years later.

He’s trying to sell a book.

Last, but certainly not least…the tweets are still up and have not been removed or replaced with an apology.
