George Floyd: John Boyega Reacts To Death Of Black Man In US, Says He Hates 'Racists'

English actor, John Boyega, has expressed his hatred for racists while reacting to the death of a 46-year-old black man, George Floyd.

AllNews understands that in the past few hours Twitter users demanded judgment on the death of Floyd who died in during arrest.

Reports say a Minneapolis police officer was filmed pinning the African American man to the ground with a knee on his neck.

Although the four police officers involved in Floyd's death were fired from the Minneapolis Police Department on Tuesday, Boyega joined thousands of people reacting to the black man’s death, as he tweeted: "I really fucking hate racists"

Also posting with the with the hashtags "#RIPGeorgeFloyd #BlackLivesMatter #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd," the actor wrote "This just burns. Seems to be a never ending cycle. The murderers need to be charged severely. Even in the face of death this man was given zero empathy."

The tweet also quoted some of the words Floyd can be heard on video speaking during his arrest, like "I can't breathe" and "They're going to kill me." Police later said his death was the result of a "medical incident."

Boyega’s tweets generated outrages on the micro-blogging platform, but he was less concerned as he responded, saying "I said what I said" and "You're a fool."

Also taking to his Instagram Live, he said: "I'm not even apologizing, first of all," he said in the video. "A black man was just murdered in cold blood in the streets stateside, again, while saying that he can't breathe. That's a continuous cycle going on. Although I don't live in the states, but I'm black. F--- that. So I'll say it again, f--- you racist white people."

"If you don't f---ing like it, go suck a d---, seriously. It's not about career, it's not about money," the English actor continued. "All those things were just a part of my dream, just a part of working. That's got nothing to do with how you treat people."

Meanwhile, the FBI is now investigating Floyd’s death.
