Lesson learnt.

If you have the internet/eyeballs you'll know that To All the Boys I've Loved Before is one of the most hyped films on Netflix right now, and people can't get enough of the young cast.

But being in the limelight involves responsibility, and one of the young male leads from the film is learning this quick-smart.

Israel Broussard, who plays Josh in the film, has come under fire for tweets he posted back in 2016. One questioned the Black Lives Matter movement, calling it a "division".

"Hashtags don't f*cking matter. But all lives do. Black lives matter. White lives matter. Police lives matter," he wrote.

In another tweet, he implied that he would have a problem being cast in a gay role, writing: "I'm not going for a gay role, thank you though. Haha."

Woah dude, just no.

Luckily, Isreal has addressed the tweets by issuing the following apology to his account on Wednesday:

Taking full responsibility for the tweets, Isreal said he'd made a "pivotal life lesson".

"I am dedicated to becoming a more informed and educated version of myself," he wrote.

While it's an absolute no-no to post opinions like Isreal's, it's good to see the actor has clearly seen the error of his ways. We'll get back to re-watching To All the Boys I've Loved Before for the 15th time now.
