Default "I was not welcome," Jaleel White whines

https://www.complex.com/pop-culture/...y-matters-cast

Quote:
Jaleel White’s Steve Urkel character has become one of the most iconic super-nerds of all-time, and is widely credited for helping Family Matterssecure a successful nine-season run. However, the now-44-year-old actor says his introduction to the show wasn’t exactly smooth, as the original main cast didn’t welcome him with open arms.


“I was not welcomed to the cast at all. They know what it was,” White said in an upcoming interview on TVOne’s Uncensored. “I didn’t think anything of it, being cast to be on Family Matters, because it was supposed to be a guest spot, one and done.”

Exactly. I like Jaleel White less and less the more he does this kind of "pity me" interview. He wasn't invited to the Emmys, he wasn't welcomed by the rest of the cast, but he has no problem bullying Jaimee Foxworth, both in the past and in the present.

Right? Very disappointing.

At the end of the day, someone didn't hate him because he ended up becoming the star of the show.

God bless you and him and the rest of the cast always!!!
