'Atlanta' Actor Has No Time For Anyone Who Disrespects Black Women
"Don’t ever throw 'em on the back burner."

“Atlanta” actor LaKeith Stanfield doesn’t appreciate anyone disrespecting black women.

In a video uploaded to YouTube on Monday, Stanfield ― who plays Darius in FX’s hit show “Atlanta” ― claimed he recently had to call out a driver for criticizing black women in front of him. He said the driver continued to make rude remarks before he learned that the actor was not one to engage in such crude conversation.

“Some dude, one of the drivers who takes us from point A to point B on this project that I’m working on, and he’s like, ‘Yo, black women they’re the hardest to deal with, man. They’re the most f**ked-up version of a woman you could have,’” Stanfield said.

Stanfield went on to say he had to quickly call out the driver over his remarks.

“I said, ‘Whoa, whoa, wait, hold on. You talking to the wrong person man because as far as I’m concerned…the most beautiful aspect of black women is that they’ve been through the most s**t you could go through in this country,” he said. “You know what I mean? They really have been through the most s**t and that’s a beautiful thing.’”

“That’s something that… should empower you to be a better version than what the f**k you are,” he added. “Instead of having you feel beat down by it, it empowers you to be better.”

‘Taboo’ Star Tom Hardy on Being a “Dick” and Those 'Star Wars’ Rumors

The Oscar nominee and star/EP of FX’s 19th-century period drama admits he’s earned his fierce reputation: “I’ve been a dick. But then, who hasn’t?”   

If you believe everything you read, Tom Hardy is the best actor of his generation and also the most dangerous. Descriptors like “volatile” and “mercurial” trail his name, as do tales of on-set squabbles. But as the Oscar-nominated actor, best known for his roles in Mad Max: Fury Road, The Revenant and The Dark Knight Rises, arrives at The Ritz-Carlton on a snowy Manhattan morning to promote his 19th century drama Taboo for FX and the BBC, it’s hard to reconcile that image with the man seated before me. Between puffs of his e-cigarette, a thoughtful and exceedingly self-aware Hardy, 39, who both stars in and executive produces the limited series, spoke candidly about playing “scary blokes,” learning to love the awards circuit and just about anything but those Star Wars rumors.

Profiles of you typically include references to your “dangerous” reputation …

There’s this myth, which is quite asinine, that circulates about me — usually by those who haven’t worked with me. There’s only one thing worse than being talked about and that’s not being talked about in this game so I’d rather it be that, I guess. But there are other people who I work with consistently who know that’s not the case — who just wouldn’t risk having somebody like that in their midst because there’s too much at stake. Obviously you’re going to rub people the wrong way … and I’ve been a dick. But then, who hasn’t?

Is that reputation helpful when you play dark characters as you do on Taboo?

Of course. And I play a lot of scary blokes, and there are probably a few reasons why. First, villains are much more interesting than hero leads, who are, for the most part, really boring. The thought of going into work day in and day out to play someone who is just mind-numbingly boring fills me with dread, so I don’t bother. Another part of it is when I was younger I remember being frightened a lot — of being small and skinny and vulnerable and feeling that I could have been preyed upon easily. So, everything that I play is what scared me.

There are only three people in the world who know what the new season is about. And that’s FX CEO John Landgraf, Dana Walden, and Sarah Paulson. I don’t know if we’ll keep it quiet. Last year was successful. I don’t know if we’ll do it again. I think maybe we’ll release some of it earlier than we did. But I just started writing it, I haven’t even cast it yet except for Sarah and Evan. It’s a modern-day story. That’s all I can say.

[puts my lips against the microphone] hi i’m so glad you all came. here’s my 5000 word analysis on why the troll toll song featured in season 4 episode 13 “the nightman cometh” of fx’s hit show it’s always sunny in philadelphia is actually about mac paying the troll toll to get into the boy’s hole, which isn’t dennis’ asshole as one may suspect, but rather his god hole, which he’s previously tried to fill with money, the illusion of power, and puss, but now realizes that he’s needed mac to fill all along. furthermore,
