Denzel Washington hates #UncleDenzel meme

Denzel Washington Uncle Denzel memeIn case you didn’t know, Denzel Washington is not amused by the meme that’s been circulating on the internet since last year.

In May 2015, when he was sporting a mustache in preparation for his role in The Magnificent Seven, he was photographed after the Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao boxing match. In the photo, he’s wearing a baseball cap, he’s leaning slightly forward and his front teeth are jutting out.

The memes, some of which are pretty funny — have been tagged #UncleDenzel on Twitter. But when a self-proclaimed “self-taught” journalist who calls himself The Almighty Zilla was doing an interview for The Magnificent Seven with Denzel and director Antoine Fuqua, he asked Denzel about the meme.

Denzel was instantly defensive and replied, “If I had my wallet, I’d show it to you. Because they didn’t know what I was doing. They don’t need to know.”

He added, “Those who can, do. Those who can’t, talk about those who can. Are you just one that sits on the sideline to talk about other people, or can you step up?”

The Almighty Zilla hastily ended the interview on that point and tweeted the video, writing, “For all those who laughed at “Uncle Denzel” Mr. Washington has a message he wants me to give to you.”

Fans have been tweeting about Denzel’s response, including @NotherBrother, who wrote, “Damn. Denzel seems kinda pissed by the whole #UncleDenzel shit. Talking about his wallet and shit,” while Creed Bratton wrote: “Bruh gotta Lighten up.” @JaynCleveland tweeted: “Denzel didn’t find #uncledenzel amusing?!? U gotta be able to laugh at urself b…”

Do you agree with them? Should Denzel have laughed the meme off?

    OMG this is rich! He’s an arrogant SOB and I’m glad he showed his true colours.

    Agreed. Always thought Uncle Denzel was arrogant, and full of himself. He deserves a meme to bring him back to earth. What the hell is he talkin’ ’bout? My Wallet? Is you one that doos or is you aint? Dose dat can, will do it on yer front lawn. Dose dat can’t, watch. The magnificent six…plus uncle denzel.

    Ya, take it with a grain of salt and laugh. We all have a horrible pic taken once in a while. Now he just added fuel to the fire.

    You’d be pissed if a crazy looking photo of you was circulating. Why does that make him arrogant? And Willie Mae, Wiilie Mae, um, um, ump!

    Because instead of laughing it off, he started yapping about how rich he is, which proves he’s an a hole who can’t take a joke without trying to put everyone else down so he can feel like a big man. What a prick.
