In the comments section, people were quick to allude to Walter's caption about John making his childhood fun. Some mentioned that John served as the father figure they didn't have.

Others expressed that even at eighty years, John still looked good and fit. Some others thanked him for being a positive figure while some said they were jealous Walter got to meet him. Someone said:

“I love you; John Amos, thank you for the Wonderful memories <3 James Evans, a strong father figure ??.”

Instead of coming on as the patriarch James Evans, John played the role of Alderman Fred Davis, a man running for local office.

His appearance was one of the highlights of the show, as people could not stop talking about how wonderful it was to have John Amos back on stage.

John, who, in a recent interview expressed that he and Bill Cosby were not friends and the latter got the reward for what he did, is set to reprise his role in the sequel of Coming America as Cleo McDowell
