‘Canceled express’ has picked up a new passenger:  ‘Spider-man: Into the Spider-verse’ voice actor Shameik Moore.

The 25-year-old took to Twitter Thursday (May 28) to suggest Black peoples’ negative (and sometimes fatal) interactions with police forces across the United States could be avoided if they “learn how to deal with police and racism.”

Going on to cite “Black on Black crime” as a topic the African American community should prioritize over police brutality, Moore’s multi-tweet rant even saw him say he doesn’t ‘fear for his life because he knows how to handle himself in tough situations.’

Needless to say, his commentary – especially in the midst of a national social crisis stemming from the filmed death of unarmed Minnesota Black George Floyd – incited fury.

Much like we reported here, ‘Star Wars’ star John Boyega is among celebrities who are expressing outrage over the videotaped death of an unarmed Black man (George Floyd) by Minneapolis police.

However, his comments have incited fury among the law officers’ supporters.

Taking to social media recently, the 28-year-old tweeted he “f*cking hates racists” – a stance he was not willing to debate.

“This just burns,” he later tweeted alongside a photo of Floyd. “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.”

His comments lit up Twitter and Instagram, leading him to upload a video dragging defenders of the Minneapolis policemen who committed the crime.

The investigation’s findings came ahead of the ‘Being Mary Jane’ star’s first publicized interview about her time on the show, featured on the most recent edition of ‘Variety.’

As the movie industry gears up to re-rev its engine, Warner Bros will be firing from all cylinders with hotly anticipated blockbuster ‘Tenet.’

Directed by Christopher Nolan and by John David Washington (son of Denzel Washington), the action thriller is unique in that its plot specifics are being kept under wraps.

Instead, the time-twisting spectacle is simply billed as “evolving from the world of international espionage.”

What is for certain is that there has been ample buzz around the title. Part due to Nolan’s critically acclaimed gravitas (see: ‘Inception,’ ‘Interstellar,’ ‘Batman Begins’), as well as Washington’s growing profile. Indeed, via titles such as ‘BlacKkKlansman,’ the 35-year-old has himself as a box office draw in his own right.

Ahead of ‘Tenet’s July 17th release, check out the trailer below…
