Did He Lie? Damon Wayans Jr. Faces Some Backlash Over 'Racist Ancestors' 4th of July Tweet

Damon Wayans Jr.’s Independence Day tweet set off more than just some fireworks.

“Happy white people proud of their racist ancestors day,” he tweeted.

As you can imagine, there were quite a few angry white people in his mentions.

“Jokes aren’t illegal,” he wrote to another person who cited “another example of Hollywood talking down to Americans.”

Someone else wanted to make sure Damon knew that he lives “in the best country in the world” and that he should “thank God that you live in America.”

But…did he lie? Most of America’s ancestors WERE racist.
