Lakeith Stanfield and Charlamagne the God have a beef dating back to a 2016 Breakfast Club interview. Since then the pair have never been on good terms, with each taking several shots at each other over the years.
Since the interaction that soured their relationship, Charlamagne has missed no opportunities to take shots at the Atlanta actor, even naming him Donkey of the Day in his famous Breakfast Club segment.
Stanfield fired back with a diss record titled “Automatic”, and since then has avoided the morning show all together.
Things heated back up this past week when Stanfield’s frequent co-star and friend Daniel Kaluuya stopped by Chalamagne’s show to promote their latest film together, Judas and the Black Messiah. While there, Charlamagne took shots at Stanfield, who in the film plays FBI informant William O’Neal.
Charlamagne asked Kaluuya “Did you find yourself looking at LaKeith differently after the way he played this role because he did it too well?”
Kaluuya seemed know their history and quickly brought up Stanfield and Charlamagne’s past, asking if it was still an issue. Charlamagne responded “I never had an issue with him. I do feel like he was born to play this role, though.”
Kaluuya then defended his co-star and expressed how difficult it was for him to play the character. He said Stanfield’s performance was “the biggest sacrifice” and that there were days where he was “he was really going through it” on set.
Stanfield did some firing back of his own on social media shortly afterwards, calling Charlamagne a “h*e”.
H**s. This what h**s do,” he wrote in a comment. “Get sonned by the reality. Get off me bro u a lame. Daniel ain’t an idiot. Leave me be dog and find somebody else @cthagod.”
Well today he has more to add to that.
In a since deleted video posted to his Tiktok, he doubled down on his response to the radio host, dancing with a handgun and pointing it at a picture of Charlamagne. He pretends to pull the trigger and dances with a mannequin. He makes sure to make his stance on his film character clear, throwing up a middle finger at a picture of William O’Neal.
