Denzel Washington has feelings, and he’s got some negative ones towards the meme that has been going around ever since he was caught looking like he was about to bum a smoke from someone at the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight last year.
While Washington was promoting The Magnificent Seven, Global Grind asked him for his thoughts on being meme-ified. “If I had my wallet, I’d show it to you,” he said. “Because they didn’t know what I was doing. They don’t need to know.”
“Those who can, do. Those who can’t, talk about those who can,” he continued. “Are you just one that sits on the sideline to talk about other people, or can you step up?”
The Magnificent Seven — starring Chris Pratt and directed by Training Day’s Antoine Fuqua — opens Sept. 23.
