For some of his followers, however, Boyega's message wasn't one worthy of sharing. For those who took the time to challenge the actor, Boyega had clever comebacks to silence them all.

 

Happy black history month. Didnt think saying happy was good but @JohnBoyega said it is so i will as well

@randomnascar please take several seats black history is more than that.

@JohnBoyega good point lots of great people to remember. Hopefully we'll get to point where we dont even notice colors

 

 

Another follower chimed in that the month shouldn't be treated differently than any of the others.

 

@JohnBoyega I just want every month to be we are all happy with each other month.

 

 

To which the actor responded:
