Following the tweet: 'I really f**cking hate racists' some Twitter users have reminded the actor that hate is a strong word and should not be used anyhow, especially when targeted towards another human being.
Boyega refused to back down, adding: "I said what I said".
Earlier in the day, Boyega posted a message on the social media site that read: "This just burns". I wasn't raised by no weak people, you understand? "And if you don't f-ing like it, go suck a d-".
While the actor has been supported by the black community for his statement, a few other people are still against him as they are expressing that a statement as such incites violence.
Boyega tweeted his hatred of racists before replying to a Nigerian man who said he broke up with his girlfriend because she was racist against white people. "The kind that has ruined the world not caused a lil break up with your girlfriend". "I'm white and I've had my fair share of people being racist to me". "#RIPGeorgeFloyd#BlackLivesMatter#JusticeForGeorgeFloyd", Boyega tweeted on May 27.
John Boyega sees what is happening to black individuals here from the US - namely, the killing of George Floyd - he has a message into black white Americans who may also be his lovers. As I said you can't force me to talk about what I'm not talking about. I'm not the guy to be rattled.
"It's very very important at this time that we ignore ignorance, and we ignore people that come through and try to make these stations what they're not", he continued.
I am not talking about any other way. Following his death, protests broke out across the USA and all four police officers involved were fired. Of course there's other forms of racism.
"But a black man was just murdered in cold blood in the street Stateside again, while saying he can't breathe".
Boyega has retweeted many tributes to Floyd, 46, whose death has sparked large protests in Minneapolis after video showed a white police officer, Derek Chauvin, pinning him down by the neck for over eight minutes during an arrest. The FBI is now investigating his death.
