McKesson tweeted, “Given the history of rendering black people as apes, I’m offended and appalled by the lack of consciousness in Hollywood. #PlanetOfTheApes,” alongside an image of the cover of the new blockbuster War for the Planet of the Apes and a toy figurine of a “bad ape” wearing a blue vest.
Serial race baiter Tariq Nasheed also got in on the act, tweeting, “Does the new Planet of the Apes poster have racially coded messages? Notice the #BlackLivesMatter symbolism. Notice the ape with the blue vest.”’
