There’s no doubt about it, A-List celebrity Denzel Washington is his own man, and he will not be pressured into following a movement by anyone.
Washington showed that recently, when he bucked the heavy “anti-cop” agenda and messaging on the left, especially from “Black Lives Matter,” and threw all of his support and adoration behind our nation’s police.
There’s no doubt that Denzel is on the side of law and order.
Denzel says that he saw the hard work cops do during the filming of his movie “Malcolm X,” and since that time he’s never looked back or shrugged off his support for our nation’s police force.
Washington says that he has the “utmost” respect for the police.
Academy Award-winning actor Denzel Washington said he has “the utmost respect” for cops — while taking a shot at anti-police protesters.
The 66-year-old “Malcolm X” actor said he’s had a first-hand look at the value of police work, after playing law enforcement in several roles throughout his career.
“I have the utmost respect for what they do, for what our soldiers do, (people) that sacrifice their lives. I just don’t care for people who put those kind of people down,” Washington told Yahoo! Entertainment.
“If it weren’t for them, we would not have the freedom to complain about what they do.”
Washington’s new dark thriller, “The Little Things,” marks the 13th time he has played a law enforcement role.
He recalled a ride-along with police to prepare for his role as a cop who becomes a prosecutor in 1991’s “Ricochet.”
“I went out on call with a sergeant,” he told Yahoo!
What a brave and bold thing to say at this time in America.
I don’t think celebrities like him, or “anti-masker” Bruce Willis get enough credit for their bravery and bold leadership.
