February is always a special month. Not only do we celebrate love on Valentine’s day, but we also commit to honoring Black History.
To commemorate the start of this time of year, Star Wars: The Force Awakens actor John Boyega tweeted a simple greeting to his 460,000-plus followers:
Happy black history month X — John Boyega (@JohnBoyega) February 1, 2016
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.
@randomnascar please take several seats black history is more than that.— John Boyega (@JohnBoyega) February 1, 2016
Another follower chimed in that the month shouldn’t be treated differently than any of the others.
To which the actor responded:
Three snaps for you John!
