Actor Malik Yoba left a touching message for his girlfriend on Instagram - and some people are calling his post "controversial."

Malik was celebrating his girlfriend/babys mothers birthday, and decided to leave a touching post. The actor wrote:

Not very long ago we hit the roughest patch of our lives and separated for a time.

But TODAY I publicly choose to celebrate YOU , the most incredible woman I’ve ever had the pleasure of loving.

My truest reflection ever! It took me 48 years to finally find my match and I’m eternally grateful for you BJ Hendrix 🙏🏾❤️

The actor went on to discuss how they raise their biracial daughter. Malik added:

We shared a similar world view on so many things from purpose , travel , food, culture, spirituality, art , music , love, inclusion and diversity and the list goes on.

Two hustlers and parents raising multicultural children who are determined to leave the world a little better than we found it.

Thank you for taking this walk with me, thanks for the meaningful trials and tribulations and the opportunity to expand my everything with you.

It was truly beautiful. But some in Black Twitter seem upset, that Malik is with a White girl. And so the comments for the post are filled with angry and hateful commentary.

Here's an example on what you see in the comments:
