Whoopi Goldberg blasted Black Lives Matter activist DeRay McKesson after he said he was “offended & appalled” by how a Planet of the Apes movie poster appeared to show an army of apes as black people.

McKesson responded to a Twitter message posted by “Anti-Racism Strategist” Tariq Nasheed‏ that read: “Does the new Planet of the Apes poster have racially coded messages?Notice the #BlackLivesMatter symbolism.Notice the ape with the blue vest.”

McKesson, who’s known for wearing a blue vest, responded to Nasheed in a tweet in which he placed a circle around an ape in a blue jacket and included a photo of a blue jacket-wearing toy of the movie character.

“Given the history of rendering black people as apes, I’m offended & appalled by the lack of consciousness in Hollywood,” McKesson tweeted.

“In associating black people w/ apes, active work is being done to perpetuate the dehumanization of black ppl in mass media,” McKesson wrote in a separate tweet that appears to have since been deleted.
