In the last few days, UFC welterweight Mike “Platinum” Perry and action movie star Michael Jai White have been trading verbal barbs back and forth on Twitter. Well, Platinum just took their Twitter war to the next level.

Earlier today, Michael Jai White tried to defuse the situation by tweeting that the conflict “ends now.” He was waving the white flag at Perry, ready to stop the online battle.

Mike Perry wasn’t finished, however. He tweeted a racial slur that has started a Twitter storm.

Perry’s tweet reads: “Blood and bone more like b***h a** ni**a.” He ended the tweet by tagging Michael Jai White.

The aftermath from this tweet is still developing, but Perry is currently being lambasted online for his racial slur.

Platinum replied to all his critics with this tweet:

“You have to make a big deal out of this. A white man said that to you because you straight up being one. Y’all can’t act like you don’t hear me. It was bull shit he was trying to slander a real gangsta so people would think he more than an actor.”

He followed that tweet up with another:

“You are already offended I’m alive and breathing.”

And then finally:

“So fight me or pay me.”

Michael Jai White has yet to respond to Platinum’s racist remark.
