Hunger Games Star Speaks Out About Racist Twitter Attacks—What Did He Say?

Hunger Games Star Speaks Out About Racist Twitter Attacks—What Did He Say?

The stars of The Hunger Games aren’t about to let racist Twitter  vitriol ruin all the fun.

While Amandla Stenberg issued a statement about the controversy last week, Dayo  Okeniyi hasn’t said anything…until now!

Read on to find out what he told me at the Kids’ Choice Awards

“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.”
