This one time at bandwidth camp…
LaKeith Stanfield is front-and-center these days as the co-star of the soon-to-be-released film Judas And The Black Messiah. We are very excited to see how LaKeith and Daniel Kaluuya brought the tragic-yet-inspiring story of Fred Hampton to life. But we are nowhere NEAR as excited as LaKeith was the day he joined Clubhouse.
Some of you may remember that Stanfield took the stage in one of the social media app’s most controversial rooms, the moan room, and the results send his name to the climax of Twitter’s trending topics.
During an appearance on Van Lathan and Rachel Lindsay’s Higher Learning podcast, LaKeith explained exactly what the f**k was going on during his orgasmic oration in the aforementioned moan room.
“I signed up for the app, and it’s a really interesting, fun, cool app,” LaKeith shared excitedly. “[It] addicts you right away because you’re able to communicate in a new way. So, there were top rooms at the top of the queue, and as you go down, the rooms get lower. The first room, one of the first rooms I saw was the moan room. So, I go into the moan room and I realize this is a bunch of guys who are moaning in a room.”
The 29-year-old actor then revealed that he set on a quest to find the best moan on YouTube. After passing up a few different selections, Stanfield came across the perfect one and pretended it was him.
“I go into the room and I try to sound as soft as I can, like the moan guy in the video sounds,” said LaKeith. “So, that way, when I play the moan it sounds seamless. I went in there, I’m playing a character. I’m essentially doing what I do, which is perform. I go in there and I’m like, ‘You guys ready.’ For a $300 cash prize by the way, which I actually won, but I go in there and set the tone and play the moan.”
Now, there will always be nonbelievers when it comes to this sort of thing. Many folks already believe that LaKeith is just a freaky-deeky negro and nothing about his YouTube story will convince them otherwise. On the other hand, many folks think LaKeith is weird as hell and YouTubing men’s moans to win a $300 seems completely plausible to them.
Where do you reside on this issue? Is it LaKeith or LaCap?
