Jennifer Garner Receives Backlash After Her Response To Regina King Embracing Being An LA Native

Jennifer Garner is facing backlash on social media after a TikTok user shared a clip from Chelsea Handler’s Netflix celebrity interview series from 2017.

The episode in which people express their rage is titled “Dinner Party: My American Experience,” and it stars Garner, Rob Riggle, Regina King, Mary McCormack, and Dan Savage. In this episode, they talk about their roots, patriotism, religion, and the complexities of modern America.

In one scene, Regina King displays her pride and embraces her heritage as an LA native.

“I grew up here in L.A., born and bred,” King said in the episode. I’m one of the few people who was born and raised in Los Angeles, and I wear it proudly on my chest because so many people say, “Oh, L.A. is this, and L.A. is that.” “No, you’re not from L.A., so you don’t know,” King says.

Jennifer Garner interrupted Regina King and asked, “Do you know where your ancestors are from?” “Well; yeah, we’re part of the triangle slave trade,” King responded. And from Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Senegal.”

Regina King went on to explain how her mother came to Los Angeles from the South. “But my parents are both from the South,” she says. They met each other here. To this day, I’m grateful my mother left.” “My mom was the one who was like, Mam, I’m getting the f*ck out of this bitch, and I’m going to see what else is out there,” King says.

Jennifer Garner’s question to Regina King appears to have outraged social media. Check out their reaction below to the clip.

as a strong advocate for indigenous rights, I would ask the same question to everyone at that table.

Jen said let me bring up your ancestors to show you’re not from LA.

Proud of you Regina; relax Jennifer, what difference does it makes where her family oriented from. She’s from Los Angeles and so am I. Time for you to get back in your kitchen and focus on yourself!

I thought Regina did and excellent job in answering her question. So much so, I’m sure Jennifer was dumbfounded to hear the absolute real deal. Regina is an excellent beautiful black woman . She can meet you on any level with eloquence. I just wonder if Jennifer could have done the same if the table was turned?
