On February 1, unofficially known as Black Excellence Day and officially known as the first day of Black History Month, John Boyega tweeted this:

It reads "Happy black history month X."
Twitter: @JohnBoyega

It reads "Happy black history month X."

Then, of course, a familiar call rang out from the public:

The tweet has since been deleted, but initially said "happy racially divided month." We have all been here.

He simply wasn't having it.

"Black history is American history, always thought it was weird having just a month dedicated," Twitter user @kharsh07 tweeted at Boyega. "💤💤💤💤," Boyega responded.
