John Oliver just confirmed something that many suspected…Beyonce was photoshopped into the Lion King cast photo!
The photo features Donald Glover (Simba) and Beyonce (Nala), along with John, Seth Rogen and Billy Eichner (Zazu, Pumbaa and Timon), Chiwetel Ejiofor (Scar), Alfre Woodard (Sarabi), Eric André, Florence Kasumba and Keegan-Michael Key (hyenas Azizi, Shenzi and Kamari), JD McCrary (Young Simba), and Shahadi Wright Joseph (Young Nala).
While making an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, John said, “She wasn’t there. No she wasn’t there…I think almost everyone else was there.”
“Chiwetel [Ejiofor] was sitting in the front and he said, ‘You need to be careful where your foot is,’ and I look down on the floor and there was just this piece of tape on the floor with Beyonce’s name on it,” John continued. Check out 6:45 in the video clip to watch.
