The 46-year-old Jerry Maguire star was reacting to an interview with Boosie in which the musician described an experience in prison when he encountered two inmates engaging in anal sex. Boosie described the incident in a profanity-laced tirade and made several homophobic remarks.
"LIL Boosie says N**ga 19 times but Twitter accusing him of being homophobic," Mohr wrote.
Mohr also retweeted multiple memes about Boosie's aversion to gay sex before weighing in on a separate Twitter interaction in which one user called another user "corny."

After Mohr shared the tweets using the racial slur, many of his followers reacted to criticize him.
