Revisiting meme about Idris Elba chocking on spicy wings

It was in 2019 when Idris was on the YouTube talk show, Hot Ones, and he was tasked with eating spicy wings.

As the segment began, it was revealed that the actor enjoys some hot peppers with his daily breakfast, but little did one know he would choke on the just same a few minutes later.

At one point in the interview, he starts coughing vigorously while ingesting a chicken wing. But, the actor soon recovers and gets back to finishing the rest.

However, this particular moment went on to inspire the viral meme and more jokes that followed.

Actor is ’embarrassed’ by it

Idris told Trevor that he is not too proud of the viral meme because he eats peppers every day.

The host explains to him that the pepper he consumed on the show was way hotter than the ones included in his daily diet, to which the actor agrees.

He also wanted to make it clear that he wasn’t exactly “choking” on it.

“First of all, you know, just to clear this up: It wasn’t the hot wings that got me. It was like, you know when, you know, the spit goes down the wrong part of your throat? You don’t believe me?”, ” Idris asks.

Trevor laughingly assures the actor that he believes the justification.
