Cavill took to his Instagram account to quote Superman while showing his support for the #BlackOutTuesday movement. The quote that reads that a distinction between right and wrong is not hard to make makes so much sense and feels so relatable.

The outrage over the incident has spread outside the US with protestors taking over streets in New Zealand and London. The chapter will definitely go down in the history of America as something that was rather dark and unfortunate.
