Ravens CB Marlon Humphrey Shares Wild Admission About The Movie ‘Titanic’

Most people know the maiden voyage of the RMS Titanic made headlines around the world for all of the wrong reasons after the supposedly unsinkable ship struck an iceberg and sank in the North Atlantic Ocean in 1912—a tragedy that claimed the lives of over 1,500 passengers and crew members.

James Cameron took a few liberties with the actual story when he used the disaster as the backdrop for the romance between Jack and Rose in 1997’s Titanic, but the man who admitted he mostly made the movie so he could visit the wreck in real life still drew plenty of inspiration from the events that actually transpired during the ill-fated journey.

Titanic is just one of many Hollywood creations that have been somewhat liberal with the “Based on a True Story” label, and while its most important characters may not have actually been aboard the ship, it’s still a pretty faithful account of the timeline of the historical events at its core.

I don’t think it’s a stretch to suggest the vast majority of people who’ve seen the film are aware of that reality, but there’s at least one NFL player who somehow just discovered Titanic is not, in fact, entirely a work of fiction.

Marlon Humphrey has cemented himself as an incredibly solid cornerback for the Ravens since he was drafted by Baltimore in 2017, and he’s also emerged as one of the most entertaining Twitter follows the league has to offer.

The 26-year-old Humphrey has routinely set the internet ablaze with the Hot Takes he peddles on a fairly regular basis (including one that somehow didn’t get him swiftly traded), and on Friday, he once again attracted plenty of attention when he admitted he just found out Titanic was based on actual events.

This apparently isn’t the first time he’s been led astray, as he added he used to think Rocky was based on a true story until having the record set straight.

Classic Marlon.
