David Daniel Otunga Sr. (born April 7, ) is an American actor, lawyer, and professional . Otunga returned on October 28 when he conducted an interview for Seven months after meeting singer and actress Jennifer Hudson, Otunga.
Otunga walked out as well during the match, because Laurinaitis had refused to tag himself in, allowing John Cena to make Laurinaitis submit. He was put into a match against Big Show, which he lost.

People get offended by that.
I've said things without thinking about it — not trying to be offensive. I need to apologize for that. I'm of the, it's not what people say it's what they do and who they are. We're so focused on rhetoric and stuff it's like, "Yeah, Donald Trump says really dumb shit all the time but he's doing way worse shit.
Or do you want to have art be art — a means of escape. I like my music to be an escape from it all, but then I like to use my celebrity as a means to fight for causes I believe in.
I want to start foundations where I can start putting my time and efforts and energy and money into things that I believe in — whether it's helping the youth or disenfranchised groups. To me the kids are so smart nowadays and they mobilize without any inclination as to why or how they need to do it.
Kids who are 14 or years-old are mobilizing. I didn't feel that strength at that age at all. It's just happening on the daily. I know, and the fact that we are reporting on it more is disheartening. It's also nice that these kids, again like the Parkland shooting, they are able to speak up without any hesitation and that shows me how courageous they really are. I don't think I had that and that of itself is inspiring. They are already miles ahead of where I was.
Miles ahead in terms of their genuine passion for it, their love for it, but their genius behind it I don't think I would've had the means to do that. I also wanted to ask you, why do you think MeToo never really touched the music industry? Oh yeah, I'm sure there is still time where stuff will come out. I don't think it's over by any means.
The thing that sucks that I think, is that a lot of guys don't speak up. They don't want to snitch and I'm like, "Motherfucker, snitch! They are doing terrible things, tell people about it.
Don't protect your friend. When all this stuff started coming out in the film industry more and more I'm was like, Of course. That guy is so gross. Whose ass wants to be grabbed?
I'm sure it's going to keep coming out, I hope it does. Did you ever have those moments in the early days, where you had to think, "Oh am I taking advantage of my power? I even think back to times in high school where I think of a memory and it will be so embarrassing. Like I don't know if I overstepped a boundary. I was so young and dumb and unequipped to deal with certain things. I just hope that it never came across as creepy or just totally inappropriate because that's never where I was coming from.
Here's where I draw the line. If the liberals are saying, "Hey why are you fining these NFL players [for kneeling during the anthem]? I get it but we have to understand, yes, Roseanne made the worst tweet. But we're taking people's careers away. I don't know where to draw the line because I do think obviously that's horrible, but I think we need to look at patterns. If a person says something a few times but they are not acting out on it Do you censor yourself often?
No I don't censor myself anymore. If I find that I offended somebody or they let me know I really try to apologize. At the same time, if we're saying You can't say that, we're kind of the worst.
You're trying to change who people are which we should all be accepting of everyone. We need people to be honest and say those things then teach them, instead of just dragging them. The drag culture kind of bums me out. The Aziz Ansari situation was a difficult one, even women were so divided. Suzy Chin, who I worked on the last couple of records with, she is phenomenal, she's also had her share of stuff in the music industry — just terrible stuff. We were talking about that and I was like, "Where do you land with it?
Because who gives a fuck what I think, I'm just some dude but as woman in the industry, how do you feel? Just because it makes you uncomfortable, is it wrong? With a lot of these things it's like, yes. Shirt by Helmut Lang via Eastdane. There's no way it couldn't.
We had things that have happened in the past He signed Aaliyah at 14 and they were Marrying a minor I have to disagree with that, that's weird bro.
There's a lot of creepiness going around, but I just hope we can keep having the conversation. What was fame like for you at such a young age? How was navigating that as a kid? It was not easy, I don't think I dealt with it very well. I got back on my medication. I had stopped taking medication for the last two years of high school.
Yeah ADHD, anti-anxiety, and depression. I started taking them again at like 19 because the fame started getting to me. I kind of needed to numb myself a little bit. I want to medicate enough so that I can get through these interviews and meet these people. The first year was terrible. In terms of my interviews, I was either numb to the point where I didn't care or I was bitter. There was an interview I did in the UK with this girl, Alexa Chungand I regret this to this day because I look back at that interview and I don't know who that is.
I was so not in my right mind, I was just a dick.
Brendon Urie: "This Is Me Coming Out as Pansexual"
It was not cool. What did you do? It was just bitterness. I was like, Why are you even talking to me? I have a show in 30 minutes, fuck off. I didn't actually say that but I might as well. I could never forgive myself for that. Related Fashion Is Art: Hashtag I am so sorry, Alexa. Honestly, that's one that will haunt me for the rest of my life, but it's good because I can look at that and say I never want to do that again.
It made me feel so immediately bad. I was like, Why are you fucking saying this? You're such an asshole. Were your bandmates there? Oh yeah, I was in the room with my bass player John at the time.
Also, at that time we were starting to hate each other a little bit. We started to grow distant a little more. The next year we were very much distant from each other. We started to realize we should break this up. Did you ever consider going off as a solo act? I guess I still could. But your name and your brand is so synonymous with Panic. Yeah I don't even have to now. The first two or three years of the band I didn't feel like I had a license to create as much as I do now. I felt like I was the last guy who joined and you guys just included me.
I just wanted to hang out with those guys. So then when I finally gained some self-respect and started to realize I could do whatever I wanted, I gained the confidence that I never had. I always wanted to do Panic.
Panic the name symbolizes no rules. In those early days the music had these really intense themes: All these intense, dark topics. You were all kids at this point. Yeah, we'd never been with a prostitute or been to a strip club. I know you grew up Mormon, what's your relationship with religion now? I'm not religious at all any more. Actually, I don't know if that's fair to say. I definitely think Panic! At The Disco is a cult by definition. I have to accept that it's a cult now. I have no relationship with religion anymore except that I will still read the scriptures sometimes.
It's interesting to me. To read it now in the context of who I am now, thinking about who I was as a kid and how I let all this stuff affect me.
Until I started thinking for myself. How was that for your parents? Oh, they were bummed.
