Celebs making statements! Jenifer Lewis made the biggest red carpet statement of the night in head-to-toe Nike on the red carpet at the EMMY Awards. Meanwhile, "Lyft Bae Nathan" Kendrick Sampson is extra woke when it comes to health relationships. More inside...

Jenifer Lewis said she wanted to do something meaningful when she hit the carpet for the 70th annual Primetime Emmy Awards. And that's exactly what she did.

The "black-ish" actress rolled up on the carpet in head-to-toe NIKE to show support of former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick and his protest against racial injustice and police brutality.

During an interview on the carpet, the veteran actress revealed she came up with her ensemble while she was swimming recently.

"I'll wear NIKE. I'll wear NIKE to say thank you, thank you for leading the resistance," she explained. "We need more of coroporate America to stand up also. These aren't dark times, these are awakening times. And we all have to wake up."

She continued, "Thank you, Colin. Thank you for all that you do. Thank you for being brave. Thank you for being couragous. Thank you for taking a knee."

Peep the clip below:




Colin's girlfriend/HOT 97 radio personality Nessa showed love to Jenifer and Colin retweeted:




Thank YOU Jenifer using your platform to raise awareness.

Speaking of celebs speaking out...

READ to the end: 2 Questions & an ACTION at the end: 1) Where the **** is Nathan?!?! #insecureHBO I love my character Nathan, but my biggest pet peeve is no communication. Drives me up the wall. Bad communication is high on my list but NO communication is at the top, right under authority abuse. SAY SOMETHIN’ Still... he might actually be in trouble so... or maybe he’s a scammer Who knows?? 2) Men, how can we do better for our women.? We can def start with how we talk about them when they are not around. I realized on a deeper level this weekend from life and also in this last episode. 1) We can’t call them queens to their face and bitches & hos behind their backs. Even when we’re joking around... and just callin them queens ain’t cutting it. 2) We need to retrain ourselves to know that expressing vulnerability and emotion is not a weakness. We need to go out of our way to lift them up in the same way they do for us. Women of color hold up the community (that has to do heavily with white supremacy in law enforcement & in society intentionally targeting men of color, but it’s exacerbated/worsened by toxic masculinity in our community) We need to do better in our music/media and most of all in our conversations when women aren’t around... Let’s talk about it in the comments. I’m gonna do a live around it later this week. But for now... let challenge ourselves to be better in this area every day, let’s start TODAY with every man (everyone but particularly men) who reads this calling their senator to demand an end to this nomination to Supreme Court #StopKavanaugh

A post shared by Kendrick Sampson (@kendrick38) on


"Insecure" star Kendrick Sampson AKA "Lyft Bae Nathan" isn't anything like his character on the hit HBO series. In fact, he's the total opposite and he clearly knows what it takes to be in a successful relationship. He's talking communication, praising black women as queens, and how it takes a REAL man to show his vulnerable side.   Ugh. We MIGHT be in love.

Get into his lesson on love and more above.
