Few shows get fans as riled up as Insecure, the HBO brainchild of Issa Rae. With every new episode, folks across social media share their impassioned views on each character. If there's one defining characteristic of a Insecure fan, it's whether they belong to the Laurence Hive or the Issa Hive.

On Thursday's Desus & Mero, Laurence himself—actor Jay Ellis—stopped by to talk about his polarizing character and being a part of the show's most notorious sex scene, which Twitter overanalyzed for days, sometimes to Jay's chagrin. Desus and Mero grilled him on it—and thankfully, he was a good sport about it all.

You can watch last night's Desus & Mero for free online now, and be sure to catch new episodes weeknights at 11 PM on VICELAND.
