If there is anything that a 14-year-old Caucasian girl and middle aged Black male ever had in common, it would be their names. The Stranger Things star, Millie Bobby Brown had a conversation with Bobby Brown over the phone during Monday night’s 2018 Emmy Awards.
Apparently, Tracy Morgan introduced the two while taking a break in the Lindt Chocolate Lounge inside of the Microsoft Theater. The Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series nominee was excited to as she spoke to the “Perrogative” singer on speakerphone. We are pretty sure having the same name was the bud of their convo over the phone!
Following the convo, Morgan presented the award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series with Jimmy Kimmel. Of course, Morgan poked fun before announcing the winner stating, that he was “only rooting for the black people.” “I’m rooting for Leslie Jones, Zazie Beetz, and Millie Bobby Brown.”
Kimmel then reacted to Morgan jokingly stating that the young actress was neither black nor a contender in the category. Morgan jabbed back with “Well, then she’s uninvited to the cookout”.
