The Black Panther star explained to The Hollywood Reporter:

“I felt uncomfortable in my silence, and I wanted to liberate myself from it and contribute to the discussion. That was just what I felt I needed to do, quite viscerally. I couldn’t sleep. I needed to get it out … I had to talk to her about it because it was something that we hadn’t talked about.”
