He Tried to Facebook Friend Chris Darden
During an interview with Glamour, Sterling revealed that he actually reached out to the famous prosecutor during production for American Crime Story. Not only did he try to add him on Facebook, but he also called his cell phone. "He texted me back 20 minutes later, but I was asleep," he explained. "He said, 'What's up? Who's this?' So I sent him a text telling him who I am, and then [there was] no response."
After the Emmys, Chris told ET that he was "very happy" about Sterling's win. He even added that he's ready to talk with the actor, as long as it's "during the daylight hours."
