Daniel has been promoting his latest film, “Judas and the Black Messiah,” where he portrays Black Panther Party activist Fred Hampton, and stars alongside Lakeith Stanfield, who also starred in “Get Out.”
While speaking about working with Lakeith on yet another film, he was asked was if it was true that he wasn’t invited to the premiere and Daniel responded and said, “No, they didn’t invite me, bro. They didn’t invite me.”
He continued to say, “On the Sundance world premiere I was in Atlanta because I was shooting Panther [Black Panther]. And I cleared my schedule and I was like, ‘Yo, I really wanna do it.’ And then just didn’t get an invite. I wasn’t invited.”
Daniel continued to mention that he was in his bed when someone updated him about how well the film was doing at Sundance at that time. He proceeded to say that he never asked why he didn’t receive an invite to the premiere.Nonetheless, he has been seen at other screenings for the box office hit and has won multiple awards for his role in the film.
