Brooklyn Nine-Nine canceled four of its new episodes following the death of George Floyd, said a BBC report. Terry Crews, one of the show’s stars, hinted this.
Crews revealed the show would “start over” due to the anti-racism protests.
“We’ve had a lot of somber talks about it and deep conversation.”
“And we hope through this we’re going to make something that will be truly groundbreaking this year.”
“We have an opportunity and we plan to use it in the best way possible.”
He added that co-creator Dan Goor had four episodes “all ready to go” before Floyd’s death a month ago.
Crews’ Personal Experience With Cops
He recounted his own dealings with the police.
Saying police officers had pointed guns at him, mistakenly, before he became a well-known face, adding:
“It’s something that every black man has been through.
“It’s hard to really try to get other people to understand.”
New York City has a “stop and frisk policy” that disproportionately affected people of color, particularly the African-Americans.
Crews’ Heart Goes To San Diegans
Terry Crews was instrumental for catapulting a San Diegan choir to its finals of the ‘America’s Got Talent’.
He also serves as the presenter at the ‘America’s Got Talent’.
They sang their own composition.
The choir is composed of people experiencing homelessness in San Diego.
Crews faced backlash after his tweet about race relations he meant to be inspiring turned to controversy, said USA Today.
This is after he made a controversial tweet, that reads:
“Defeating White supremacy without White people creates Black supremacy.
“Equality is the truth. Like it or not, we are all in this together.”
Crews, 51, is an active voice in calling for change on social media, said USA Today.
