Michael K. Williams Has An Unpopular Opinion About Sean Spicer's Emmys Appearance

Michael K. Williams Has An Unpopular Opinion About Sean Spicer's Emmys Appearance

Most of Hollywood may not agree.

Published September 19th

Sean Spicer's random appearance at the 2017 Primetime Emmy Awards this past Sunday night took many by surprise, as judged by the reactions seen in the audience.

While many have written the former White House press secretary off after working in President Trump's administration, one person who's willing to give him another shot is actor Michael K. Williams.

TMZ caught up with the Emmy nominated The Night Of star as he was leaving the airport, and he shared his thoughts on Spicer, and he's much more forgiving than the average Joe. 

"First of all, everybody deserves a second chance. Everybody," he said. "Who am I to say don't give somebody a second chance?"

Some celebrities have fumed at the idea of "laughing with" an ex-Trump associate, but Williams is taking the higher road.

"They want a second chance, everybody deserves a second chance," he continued. "I enjoyed his performance last night on the Emmys."

So, does this mean he would ever work with Spicer in the future?

"I've learned in this business to never say never, so there you have it," he said.

Take a look at the exchange, below:
