Keke Palmer Cashing Out On ‘I'm Sorry To This Man’ Meme

"I don't know who this man is...I'm sorry to this man." - Keke Palmer

Updated (September 20, 2019): Keke Palmer had the internet cackling thanks to her hilarious response to a photo of former Vice President Dick Cheney

On Friday, she decided to cash in on the viral clip, announcing a new line of t-shirts with the meme splashed across the front.

The t-shirts will cost $30, and sweatshirt versions will run for $55.

Since the Vanity Fair interview was released, memes have been created using Palmer’s “Sorry to this man,” phrase.

"Who the hell is...ooh y'all are really testing me on some stuff. I hate to say it, I hope I don't sound ridiculous,” Palmer said in the Vanity Fair video. 

“I don't know who this man is. I mean, he could be walking down the street and I wouldn't know a thing. Sorry to this man," the Good Morning America co-host continued.

Just when you thought we might see Palmer’s face a bit less on our timelines, the meme gained another full head of steam on Thursday thanks to Cardi B.


Cardi used the meme in response to claims made during the trial of Daniel Hernandez, also known as Tekashi69.

Hernandez, who is a witness in a federal trial for two alleged members of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods, told the court on Thursday that Cardi was a member of the Bloods gang. 

The video of Palmer’s reaction said everything Cardi needed to get out to her fans. 

Palmer is currently starring in Hustlers, which has made nearly $50 million since its opening.

Original: Keke Palmer’s inability to recognize former Vice President Dick Cheney has blessed the internet with a new meme.

During an interview with Vanity Fair, the Hustlers star was asked to compare Cheney to True Jackson, one of Palmer’s former roles.

Her response to the question and being presented with his picture was hilarious.

"Who the hell is...ooh y'all are really testing me on some stuff. I hate to say it, I hope I don't sound ridiculous. I don't know who this man is," Palmer admitted. "I mean, he could be walking down the street and I wouldn't know a thing. Sorry to this man."

From there, a meme was born.




In case you’re wondering, Palmer eventually found out who Cheney was, and she wasn’t impressed.



“I was just thrown… I truly was sorry to that man. I truly felt bad because I didn’t know who he was,” she told Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen on Sunday. “I didn’t know…after finding out who he is, I’m glad I didn’t know.”

We wish we didn’t know who he was either, sis.
