Denzel Washington Has Some Thoughts About That Little ‘Uncle Denzel’ Meme You Like So Much


Dank as they may be, Denzel Washington is not here for your memes. After an admittedly amazing photo of the actor was captured at last year’s Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight in Las Vegas, the internet consumed it, digested it, and regurgitated #uncledenzel, a goofy version of Washington with an overbite partial to boiled ribs, wearing a Bluetooth, and trying to date your mom. Well, it turns out Denzel knows about his namesake meme, and he thinks your whole life is trash. “Those who can, do. Those who can’t do talk about those who can,” Washington told Global Grind’s BlogXilla during an interview about The Magnificent Seven. “Now can you, or can you not? Are you just one that sits on the sideline to talk about other people, or can you step up?” Ah, after all this time, now you know for sure: It is you who is truly the #uncledenzel.
