The actor — who's reprising his role alongside Kenan Thompson for the upcoming sequel — took to Instagram with a post addressing negative comments that were made about him after photos from the set appeared online.

According to the official synopsis, the movie will follow Kenan's Dexter Reed as he returns to Good Burger "to work with his old pal Ed after yet another one of his inventions fail. While Ed is excited to have Dex back, his friend's plans to jump-start his own career could spell the end of Good Burger forever."

While many were excited to see him back as Ed, others were critical of Kel's appearance. They even made jokes — such as how he resembled Jada Pinkett Smith's Set It Off character, Stony.

Kel first responded to the comments with humor, saying in Ed's voice: "They said I look like Jada Pinkett [Smith], so we're about to set it off."

Kel also posted this video showing what he looked like without all the makeup:

"Yeah," he said confidently at the end.

Period, Kel! Anyway, looking forward to seeing the film when it's out later this year.
