It seems as though you can’t even joke about the Fourth of July and its racist Founding Fathers without people saying things like, “You should be appreciative that you’re here in the U.S.,” and Damon Wayans Jr. found that out really quick.

The actor posted a tweet on the Fourth that got a few people’s britches in a bunch.


On top of those replies, there were some “Go back to Africa” tweets thrown in, you know, from those feeling extra ’Merican on the Fourth of July.

But like Wayans said, it was a joke, but real.

Bye, Kinja! It's been fun (occasionally).
