The co-stars and fans of Ryan Guzman's "9-1-1" were scandalized by him after admitting that he used racial slurs "all the time". Especially after defending his actions.
Ryan Guzman is facing a major backlash after posting an Instagram Live on Sunday May 31 and admitting to using racial slurs "all the time" with his friends. the 9-1-1 The 32-year-old actor admitted: "I have a lot of friends – black, white, Asian, Indian, whoever they are, Korean – and we laugh at each other's races from others all the time. We call ourselves insults all the time. We don't hurt ourselves at all because we know the real person, we know who we are. We know we are not trying to knock each other down. So where are you coming from? Are you trying to prove that someone who is not racist is racist? No. You don't have this power. There is no racist energy coming from this household. "
Ryan posted the video after controversial tweets from his 2011 26-year-old fiancé surfaced online. In tweets, she revealed that she uses the word N with her African American friends, but due to not really understanding the "weight" of her actions and her words at that time – when she was only 16 – she apologized on Sunday May 31.
Then, after Ryan's own video also started to backfire, he went to Twitter to try to explain himself. "I will give you the benefit of the doubt for my misuse of" insults ". I should have said that we don't care about my friends'" stereotype ". My black friends will tell me to mow a lawn or to jump the border. Out of context, it may sound racist but I know my friends don't want to hurt, "he wrote." Let me be clear. I am not using not the word n because it's not mine to use. My real friends of all races know this. "
Ryan later share a link and told his followers how to contribute to the Black Lives Matter movement, bdespite trying to refocus everyone's attention on what really matters, the damage has already been done and some 9-1-1 co-stars have talked about his controversial video.

"I can tell you that my opinion is that there is absolutely no excuse for using the N-word. It belongs only to the black community and I absolutely disagree with the fact that it is used by someone else under all circumstances. "
Rockmond dunbar, who also plays in the FOX series with Ryan and Oliver, retweeted Oliver's statement before adding his own answer, saying, "As a black man, this should go without saying but just to make sure that the people in the back understand when I say that with all my chest: I do not tolerate s ** t. I don't like s ** t. And I have never been one to allow the word to be used around me by any non-black person and any so-called “ black people '' & # 39; & # 39; who co-signs their non-black friends to refer to them in this way needs their whole asses checked. Too much history, too much pain. Past and present. S ** t is completely unacceptable. "
Ryan's controversial video comes amid ongoing protests around the world, which began after the heartbreaking death of George Floyd May 25. 46-year-old unarmed black man died in Minneapolis after police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck for almost nine minutes, despite George's cries that he couldn't breathe.
