This is pretty cool. While taking a break from filming “Creed 2” in Philly, Sly takes a trip to Washington D.C. to meet President Trump about pardoning legendary fighter, Jack Johnson. The legendary fighter, not the singer. Trump just pardoned the famous boxer today.
What was fighter Jack Johnson in trouble for? Well he was arrested twice for crossing a white woman across state lines and it was against the Jim Crow laws at the time. Johnson was in a romantic relationship with a white woman named Lucille Cameron at the time. Johnson died at the age of 68 in the year of 1878. Johnson was also the first black world heavyweight champion in boxing.
Looking at the picture above, Sly looks very excited. It’s no secret that Sly is a huge Trump supporter which makes me an even bigger fan of Sly.
When is the Sly and Trump oval office photo coming? I’m sure it’s coming sooner or later.
