Steven Yeun’s Dad Thought He Did Porn After Googling His Name

Actor Steven Yeun recently appeared on Conan on TBS and revealed that his father thought that he was working in porn after accidentally finding his son through the last pages of Google search results.

The 34-year-old former star of AMC’s “The Walking Dead” recounted the story of his parents not being the best when it comes to navigating through the internet. His dad once tried to search his son’s name on Google and immediately clicked on page 30.

When you go to page 30, there’s not good things on page 30 of Google,” Yeun said. “It’s mostly like just photoshop versions of people with penises everywhere.”

But you’re in there,” host Conan O’Brien replied.

This angered Yeun’s father even though the pictures were fake.

He was angry because he thought I was selling myself to a life of porn that I was doing C-level porn – not even good porn,” Yeun said. “So it was just like, he just wanted top-tier pornography and I wasn’t part of it.”
