Despite Stanfiled’s busy acting schedule, he did not interview with the show again during his press junkets for other projects. He later accused Charlamagne of being anti-black in a now-deleted 2019 Instagram post, writing,

“It’s a fact that a lot of these platforms are usually or tend to be feeding grounds for negative reinforcement toward BLACK ‘nonconformists’. They bolster faux vanity and hold a white supremacists scope over black men and women often highlighting negative attributes and downplaying mind expanding ones. They serve as bottomless coward consumption pits and digital, audio, or otherwise slave mentatilty museums. @ all you want.”

Charlamagne clapped back at Stanfield by naming him “Donkey of the Day” in his roasting segment of the radio show in which he blasts people for what he deems as irresponsible or stupid behavior.
