This is arguably one of the most beautiful moments in media right now.
BlacKkKlansman star John David Washington recently sat down with TODAY's Craig Melvin to discuss the film, which has received tons of praise from critics and fans.
But during the interview, Washington set Melvin straight after the host asked about his famous father’s influence on his acting career and left his mother's influence out of the question.
While he loves his dad, Washington made it clear that when his parents first met, his mother was already a star and that we all need to put some respeck on his mother, Pauletta Washington's name.
Check out the video below:
Whew chile, A MAN!
This a true testament to the Washington family and how phenomenal of a job both parents, Pauletta and Denzel Washington, have done raising their children.
