It was bound to happen. When you’re a celebrity and you become a meme, someone is bound to ask your feelings about it.
We’ve all seen the hilarious “Uncle Denzel” memes that are probably just as famous as the “crying Jordan” memes. The memes started after Denzel Washington attended a boxing match looking like everyone’s favorite uncle. With a track suit, baseball cap and a goatee, Washington immediately became a meme sensation.
But one had to wonder how Washington actually felt about his internet fame—and, well, he had a few words for people out there during the promotion for Magnificent 7.
“Those who can, do; those who can’t, talk about those who can!” Washington asked.
Well, there you have it. He is not here for the memes.
