Charlamagne tha God responded to LaKeith Stanfield's recent jabs during Monday's episode of The Breakfast Club.
The radio host admitted that his question to Daniel Kaluuya last week was a "warranted jab" at LaKeith Stanfield and said the actor "has a bad habit of throwing rocks and hiding his hands." When Angela Yee attempted to highlight Stanfield's admitted mental trauma after his role in Judas and the Black Messiah, Charlamagne detailed his years-long feud with the actor.
"This is yet another example of LaKeith being able to dish it but he can't take it because he made comments about The Breakfast Club and other Black outlets being anti-Black, being negative, reinforcing negative stereotypes of Black people, that was back in 2019," Charlamagne said. "I gave him 'Donkey of the Day' for that and pointed out all of the times he's gone on these White people's platforms and reinforced negative stereotypes of Black people himself. I left it alone after that. LaKeith did a whole reply video, he did a diss song, he put my face on the cover of the song, and had me with the sambo lips. I didn't respond to any of that, but I gave him a little jab during the interview with Daniel. I owed him that and that was light."
"But what LaKeith does is he gets online and he plays the victim," he continued. "He makes it seem like I'm always coming at him. But he does that all the time. When he made comments about Kamala's hair last year and got backlash, he got online and said he can say what he wants and nobody's gonna force him into not saying what he wants. All good but if you gonna have that energy of saying what you want, don't play victim when people say something back."
As The Breakfast Club hosts brought up Stanfield pointing a gun at a photo of Charlamagne and expressed their concern, Charlamagne encouraged the public to pray for the actor rather than laugh with him.
"All jokes aside though, pray for that brother LaKeith Stanfield," Charlamagne said. "I want that brother to get the healing he deserves. He's clearly crying out for help and he's been crying out for help for a long time. It's all fun and games, laughs, and reposts until that brother hurts himself. So don't laugh with him, pray for him."
