Actor, and comedian, Anthony Anderson, who is known to post Instagram quotes about the blessings of God, blessed 1500 families in Compton, California with groceries this past week.
Black-ish star, Anthony Anderson was joined by Compton’s mayor, Aja Brown (you should google her when you get a chance, she’s awesome!), and sports commentator Marcellus Wiley (who is a Compton native) to host the Compton Christmas Grocery Giveaway.
The event, with the help of Walmart fed 1500 families in the Compton community.
Anderson said about the event,
Anderson once shared how Prince, who is a devout Jehovah Witness tried to convert him. Check it out:
“I’m not going to lie, this is a true story: He cornered me at the elevator in his house one day, trying to convert me to be a Jehovah’s Witness. Oh my god, he was 2 inches away from my face and I made the mistake of looking him in his eyes. Jamie Foxx said never look him in his eyes! And he [Prince] was like,Anthony, I hear things are going on in Hollywood with my brothers and sisters. Is everything OK? I said, ‘Yeah, yeah, Prince.’ He was like, Can I have your number to call you? And I was like, ‘Ah, yeah.’ Then some noise happened in the back and he said, I’ll be right back. … Twenty minutes later I’m standing in the corner at the elevator waiting on Prince and my wife says, Baby, come on, let’s go, it’s 3:30 in the morning. I said, ‘Baby, Prince asked me to stay right here. He’s going to call me.’ And so he made three wardrobe changes [the audience laughed], finally came back and got my number. We’ve been cool ever since.”
