"I really f**king hate racists", he wrote on Twitter, before posting a video on Instagram to make his point clear.

"I am talking about WHITE on BLACK racism", said Boyega.

Expressing outrage against the death of an unarmed African American man in the hands of the police in the US, John Boyega chose to take to Twitter with an uncompromising post.

The actor then replied to a Nigerian man who said he broke up with his black girlfriend because she was racist against white people, explaining he was referring to exclusively white on black racism.

Star Wars actor John Boyega took to social media to call out racism and mourn for George Floyd, the man who died after a Minneapolis police officer was filmed weighing down on him with a knee on his neck as he gasped for air. "You f-ing d-heads".

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.

He followed up the posts in an Instagram Live video, saying: "I said what I said". The guy who has ruined the world has not caused a breakup with your girlfriend, "he wrote. I wasn't raised by no weak people, you understand?" "#RIPGeorgeFloyd#BlackLivesMatter#JusticeForGeorgeFloyd", Boyega tweeted on May 27.

Fans praised Boyega for speaking out against racism and stood by his passionate response. Again, Boyega stuck by what he said, replying: "I said what I said".

"When I don't have words I sing, when my heart hurts I sing, to watch yet another black body cut down hurt so I sing", she wrote on Instagram. Speak for yourself at all times.

"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", the 28-year-old added. Of course there's other forms of racism. I don't need you on my page. "Four responding MPD officers involved in the death of George Floyd have been terminated".

"But a black man was just murdered in cold blood in the street Stateside again, while saying he can't breathe".

Boyega then said he wasn't the sort of person to be "rattled" by racist fans, and he warned viewers that any fans who were racist would get blocked immediately.

Within the wake of Floyd's killing, the 4 officers concerned within the incident have been fired, and other people, together with the mayor of Minneapolis, have referred to as for them to face felony expenses.

State authorities and the FBI are investigating the case.
