“He is a clown in black face sitting on the Supreme Court,” said George Takei in an interview with Fox 10 Phoenix, “[he] doesn’t belong there.” Takei is an Asian American actor that you may know from the original Star Trek. Here’s how the Twitterverse reacted to his racist comments.
When a clown calls a man out of his name…the man hardly notices. That's part of what makes him a man.

We will MAKE him apologize. Let's kill the "Uncle Tom" narrative. All Black Lives Are Valuable. #ApologizeTakei

It's one thing to critique Thomas' positions. I do all the time. But to suggest that's he's "blackface clown" and "unqualified" is wrong.

#ApologizeTakei Thomas is one of my least favorite justices but Blackface is theatre rooted in racism that was used to degrade generations
