John David Washington is the son of Denzel Washington and Pauletta Washington – and you better not forget it.

The BlacKkKlansman star recently had to school Craig Melvin on his incredible mother during an interview on the “TODAY” show when he was referred to “as the son of Denzel Washington.”

John quickly corrected Craig by saying, “And Pauletta Washington.”

He continued:

Who was earning more money than he was when they were married…before they got married. 

She was on Broadway working. She paid for the first date – she paid the bill…paid the cab ride. 

Classically trained pianist – went to Juilliard. 

She’s a great artist in her own right and I learned a lot from her. 

My father taught me how to hunt. My mother taught me how to love. 

Watch the epic moment below.



John better stan for his amazing mother!
