Kimmel asked if she had a son, and King answered in the affirmative while adding that her son was 24-year-old.

The star mom mentioned the difficulty that comes with having "the talk" with her son because kids get to see the social vices and police brutality.

According to her, all these would fuel children's anger, and it is left to parents to understand their children but also make sure they stay safe in such situations. She told Jimmy:

"...But you don't want them to do anything that's going to put themselves in a situation that they may not come back home... "
