During an interview for promo of the movie Magnificent 7 Denzel Washington was asked about those meme’s that were floating around of him looking like somebody’s uncle back in May of 2015… Well, when he answered just know that he was not amused at all..
At the time of that Meme Denzel was in production on his current film The Magnificent Seven – a western that required him to grow a handlebar mustache – when he attended the Manny Pacquiao/Floyd Mayweather, Jr. fight in Las Vegas, along with the film’s director Antoine Fuqua.
At a press day for The Magnificent Seven in Toronto, entertainment host Xilla asked the actor what he thought about the memes.
“If I had my wallet I’d show you,” Washington said. “Because they didn’t know what I was doing. They didn’t need to know.”
“They know now,” said Fuqua, sitting next to him.
“Those who can, do. Those who can’t, talk about those who can. Let me say it again,” Washington said, raising his voice to interrupt Xilla. “Send that out. Those who can, do. Those who can’t, talk about those who can. Now can you? Or can you not? Are you just one who sits on the sideline to talk about other people or can you step up?”
