Gambino played it cool, as expected.
Denzel Washington's son, John David Washington, is the lead in the newly released BlacKkKlansman. The film follows the true story of Ron Stallworth who was the first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department. Last year at Cannes Film Festival, the flick won the Grand Jury Prize and John recently told James Corden on The Late Late Show one of the most memorable moments of the after party.
Apparently, John's mother and Denzel's wife is a major fan of Childish Gambino, A.K.A. Donald Glover. “We’re at the after party,” he said in the clip below. “We’re feeling good after a standing ovation and all that, everybody’s loving the film, so we’re dancing, we’re on tables, we’re drinking, cheers-ing. Donald Glover comes in. ... So I’m like, ‘Mom look, there’s Donald Glover.’ He just came off that big song he had, ‘This Is America.’”
He added: “So she goes over there and started, like, chokeholding him [and saying] in his ear, 'You knocked it out, boy.' Just started stroking his fro ever so lightly, like this. And I try to break them up, like ‘I’m sorry Donald.’... He was cool about it. But I like literally tried to break them [apart], like, ‘Ma, stop, please.’ So my brother ended up taking her home because she was partying like a rock star.”
