Michael B. Jordan is having himself a year, and it’s only February. His current movie, Black Panther, is breaking all sorts of box office records (even if he did lose a funny bet to his co-star Lupita Nyong’o). And by the looks of things, his sequel to Creed is going to be another big hit.
The 31-year-old actor is riding high like very people can in life right now. So if you’re going to come at him on Twitter with jokes about his height, love of anime and living with his parents, expect him to hit it out of the park when he responds. This is something a fan found out on Thursday.
“Michael B Jordan Is A 5’9” Adult Man That Loves Anime & Lives With His Parents….Y’all Told Me All Of Those Things Were Unacceptable Though,” tweeted @chrisfrom_216.
Over 30,000 retweets and 100,000 likes later, Michael B. Jordan decided to respond.
“First of All I’m 6ft and they live with ME, put some respeck on my name. LOL…aaaand goku & naruto are real ones 🙌🏾 lol,” wrote Jordan, not backing down on his anime love.
Of course, Chrissy Teigen, queen of social media, had to drop in with a very appropriate joke.
Jordan isn’t kidding either when he says he knows his anime and he isn’t afraid to let anyone know it either.
Did you notice how much does Eric Killmonger’s costume in Black Panther look like Vegeta from Dragon Ball Z?
Then there was the time Jordan was asked what his guilty pleasure was and wrote “anime” before scribbling over it and changing it to “women.”
“Anime. It’s the best.”
