Jay Pharoah Told His Mother About His LAPD Encounter
“There was nothing that could be done.”
In June of last year, Saturday Night Live alum Jay Pharoah revealed that he was stopped by LAPD officers and was cuffed while one of the officers put their knee on his neck.
In a preview of his upcoming appearance on Taraji P. Henson’s Facebook Watch series Peace of Mind With Taraji, Pharaoh opened up about what happened when he told his parents about the incident.
“I called and talked to my mom, she was on the phone,” Pharoah recalled. “Of course my dad was in the background. But my mom was just — I could hear it in her voice. I could hear the shakiness, the ‘what if.'”
