John Boyega Has No Time for Racists

John Boyega tweeted “I really f*cking hate racists” and people got all huffy in his replies and he was NOT having it. His responses were amazing. Then he took it up a notch on Instagram Live: “I’ll say it again. F*ck you racist white people. I said what I said. If you don’t f*cking like it, go suck a dick…If you’re a fan of me and you support my work and you’re racist and you’re arguing with what I was saying, f*ck off, you f*cking dickheads.” I love him with my whole heart.

Jack Nicholson knew my name, Ron. He starts buying me drinks, I said, ‘I gotta go shoot’ and he said, ‘You’ll be alright kid, don’t worry about it.’ I never went to bed, Ron, I never went to bed!”
