*Anthony Mackie has irked Black Twitter for the second time this week.

Three days after saying he was “drinking the Kool-Aid” for Donald Trump (which he has since described as a bad joke), the actor is weighing in on the director search regarding “Black Panther.”

Marvel Studios is filming a live action version of its first black superhero to hit mainstream comics in 1966. Chadwick Boseman will star in the film, due in 2018. A director, however, has yet to be chosen.

And according to Mackie, the director’s racial background should not be a factor in Marvel’s decision.

“I don’t think it’s important at all,” Mackie said in an interview with the Daily Beast. “As a director your job is to tell a story. You know, they didn’t get a horse to direct Seabiscuit!”

He continued, “The thing is I don’t think the race of the director has to do with their ability to tell a story. I think it’s all about the director’s ability to be able to relate to that story and do it justice. I think men can direct women, and two of my greatest work experiences were with female directors. So I think it all depends. May the best man — or woman — win.”

Meanwhile, Mackie, who plays one of Marvel’s most visible big-screen black heroes in the Falcon, has again caused a backlash on Twitter over his opinion:
