Terrence Howard has been rather vocal about injustices that he believes he’s had to suffer lately. Just last week, we told you that he blamed the controversy surrounding his departure from the Iron Man saga for ruining his career. And now, the Dead Man Down actor is calling out Black media outlets and journalists for attacking his decision to marry an Asian woman. Howard expressed his plight in an interview with Hip Hollywood.

“We have a crab mentality where we try to pull each other down because of choices we make, because I chose to marry an Asian woman instead of a Black woman. I think as Black people, we have to start helping each other and congratulating each other for being morally strong and doing the right thing by that. If you dont have something nice to say, then don’t say nothing at all.”

If you recall, Howard went through a rather bitter divorce with ex-wife Michelle Ghent, that resulted in infidelity and abuse allegations against the actor. He also alleged that his ex-wife was a racist who sought to extort him with private recordings that she snagged from his personal computer. The former couple finally reached a settlement in their divorce last August.

The Academy Award nominee also hinted at a possible acting hiatus.

“I think maybe I’ve done enough. I’ve played enough in this field and I’d like to see what other mediums I can aspire towards. I feel like I would like to challenge myself.”

Terrence is an undeniably talented actor, but possibly some downtime out of the spotlight would do him some good.
