British actor Daniel Kaluuya, 32, who has just won Supporting Actor at the 2021 SAG Awards, has been trending over the past 24-hours after his “hilarious” opening monologue during his hosting debut on Saturday Night Live made light of a serious topic surrounding Meghan Markle‘s interview with Oprah Winfrey. Still a huge talking point, the Get Out star is now trending for something else entirely – his ceremony outfit, which has been described as nothing short of a “Sunday night mood” as it resembled sleepwear attire.
As the stars gear up to celebrate the 27th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards at their homes due to a switch-up virtual ceremony, Daniel showcased his red-carpet outfit and it was quite discussion starter.
Repping a Louis Vuitton three piece co-ordinate, the actor stunned fans as they believed it looked more like silk pyjamas.
Taking to Twitter after his debut photos dropped, one said: “You can’t tell me this isn’t a pj and robe set.”
The Oscar nominee referenced the claim during his opening monologue, telling viewers: “First of all, I know you’re hearing my accent and thinking, ‘Oh no, he’s not black, he’s British’.
“Let me reassure you that I am black. I’m black and I’m British.”
Daniel then quipped: “Basically I am what the Royal Family was worried the baby would look like.”
Meghan told Oprah an unnamed royal raised concerns with Harry about how dark Archie’s skin tone might be before he was born.
A statement issued on behalf of the Queen by Buckingham Palace said “issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning”.
It added: “Whilst some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately.”
The Duke of Cambridge also said the Royal Family “is very much not racist” when questioned following the bombshell interview.
