Denzel Washington has been hailed as a hero after helping out a disorientated homeless man.
A video of the situation was first picked up by TMZ last week.
In the video, the actor is seen helping the man off a busy street.
He then acts as a mediator and communicator when police arrive.
Social media users have labelled Denzel's actions as "selfless" and commendable.
Chante Crutchfield said, "The man was walking in traffic and Denzel pulled over to get the man to safety. He then called the police, gave him some food and juice and remained with the man until he was calm enough to be safely taken to be check out. (This was) such a selfless and beautiful form of human decency."
Recently, other US celebrities have spoken out against the gruesome killing of George Floyd by Minnesota police officers.
Legit.ng reported that Madonna, Colin Kaepernick and Cardi B condemned the killing as racist and discriminatory.
Colin said, “When civility leads to death, revolting is the only logical reaction. The cries for peace will rain down, and when they do, they will land on deaf ears, because your violence has brought this resistance. We have the right to fight back!”
Many believe the killing was racially motivated as George was black and the officers involved were white.
Cardi B advised US citizens to use their vote wisely, so as to ensure they put people in power who will act decisively against such injustices.
Madonna posted a video, for which she was widely criticised, of her black adopted son dancing to Michael Jackson's They Don't Care About Us.
She captioned the clip: "Brutal murder travels around the world. My son, David, dances to honour and pay tribute to George and his Family and all acts of racism and discrimination that happen on a daily basis in America."
Although 14-year-old David busted some impressive moves, people didn't understand how this would help in any way in fighting racism.
