The actor has called for an end to the racist mentality.

He took to twitter to vent his anger, stating: “To those who think racism is a thing of the past. Last night I walking through a car park to my car and was getting abuse from this random guy calling me a “N****” and “Uncle Tom” repeatedly.

“This is the sort of mentality that is still destroying our generation and it MUST STOP.”

One fan showed support saying: “That’s nasty, it’s simply jealousy and childish , you are who you are man BIGGG love to ya bro.”

Another posted: “Disrespectful, I don’t get why people are racist and they think it makes them the big man, but it doesn’t and people shouldn’t get judged by the colour of there skin.”
