"Happy Black History Month! I don't know about you guys, but I'm gonna get back to my roots, by watching Boys In The Hood,” he said in another tweet.

"When my black friends call me the N-Word..............that's what it's like to find out you're not the father on Maury, right? #PureJoy," he wrote in another instance.
