We think Shameik Moore has been been hanging out with Kanye West and reading that slavery is a choice manual. Moore is now coming under fire for remarks he made about the killing of George Floyd and police brutality.
Moore’s Twitter Rant
In case you missed it, Moore went on a lengthy rant on twitter saying the black community needs to learn how to deal with police better, and stop blaming everything on racism. He also called out the community for black-on-black violence, suggesting that’s the bigger problem African-Americans need to tackle.
“See I have a very strong opinion that the black community hates to hear.. but needs to hear… we need to learn how to deal with police… and or racism… because THIS is the part of the scenario we have failed to fix.”
Shameik says he gave his take on the situation after seeing a video of a young black man “barking” at a cop, and simply wanted to start a conversation on how to de-escalate interactions with police. He shared a few videos to try and make his point but it didn’t help his case.
“Look… all I’m saying is.. in the MOMENT.. when we are experiencing racism.. can We the black community find ways to avoid being killed? Or hunted.” he tweeted.
Moore Apologizes, Then Speaks On Rosa Parks
The actor, best known for his work as the voice of Miles Morales in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, later went on Instagram Live to apology for offending folks with his controversial tweets.
Unfortunately he didn’t stop there. Instead he decided to discuss the topic further in another IG Live session and had the audacity to insinuate that Rosa Parks could have avoided sitting in the back of the bus had she taken a black owned taxi cab.

Needless to say his cancellation is imminent.
