Unsurprisingly, many were quick to offer up a slew of responses to the tweet — and at the time, many pointed out that a TV show being named Black-ish is most definitely not an example of 'racism at highest level'.

Meanwhile, others made it clear that they thought his tweet was absolutely ridiculous.
