E! online asked Dayo Okeniyi for his thoughts on the ridiculously racist comments recently directed towards him and fellow Hunger Games actors, Lenny Kravitz, and Amandla Stenberg.
“I think this is a lesson for people to think before they tweet,” said Okeniyi, who plays Thresh in the movie. “It’s sad…We could now see where society is today. But I try not to think about stuff like that.
“Our movie did amazing numbers,” he continued. “The response has been so positive and I just want to stay in that mindset. Whatever happens like that, I can just let it fall by the wayside.”
And Okeniyi can keep appreciating the fans. He was recently sent a pair of underwear. “Someone asked me to sign it,” he laughed. “I did it, because I love my fans that much.”
