John Boyega, one of our favorite “confident, Nigerian, Black, chocolate” men has no time for trolls.
The Force Awakens star had to deal with his fair share of racists when he was tapped to play Finn in the Star Wars franchise, and he’s been setting them straight ever since.
Monday, at the start of Black History Month, Boyega sent out a tweet to his nearly 500,000 followers marking the occasion.
Happy black history month X

Unfortunately, some folks weren’t feeling the Brit’s message. One guy called Black History Month “racially divided month,” while another argued it was “weird” to celebrate it all together.

Moral of the story? John Boyega ain’t here for your foolishness, folks…and we love it!
