All The Blacks Want Nothing To Do With Michael B Jordan?

tumblr_nuzvvfn8dX1sevsyjo1_1280so it seems michael b jordan has put his foot down his throat.
he out here looking like a severe “new black”.
one that has officially pissed off a majority of his black vixen fan base.
you know what that means?
the “taye diggs effect” is shortly coming.
broadway and cancelled tv shows.
so michael b jordan’s first problem was an alleged snapchat of him saying:

“all lives matter”

people looked at him crazy after his role in “fruitvale station”.
( x and saying this to oprah )
now there is no evidence of this alleged video,
but that’s the rumor in the fox vine.
you can head over to twitter and read the opinions.
this it where it starts to get ugly.
the question about him dating kendall jenner comes up.
well he goes in the upcoming gq october issue about says this…

It’s the world we live in. They see white and black. I don’t. Kendall’s a friend of mine, you know. I don’t know her, like, that well, but I know her enough. People’s perspective on that is what it is. I don’t f–king know. I don’t live my life to make other people happy. It’s so weird, though, right?A lot of black fans were feeling like ‘Oh, my god, he should have been with a black woman’ and that whole thing.”

okay so…
wait a minute because i’m sniggling…

tumblr_mcbcukcVTL1qaf90uo1_250okay how is she a “friend”,
but you don’t know her that well?
i keep telling these negros the kkk are career killers.
you’d think they’d listen.
i still think she was a beard “photo op”,
but whatever.

i guess with just that little slip,
he has officially started being banished.
judging from all the online opinions,
black women won’t be seeing him in creed.

in the same gq article,
he said he wants white roles for his new movies.
well here is the quote taken from “the grio”:

“I want to be part of that movement that blurs the line between white and black,” Jordan added. “I told my team after I finished Chronicle that I only want to go out for roles that were written for white characters. Me playing the role will make it what it is.

He later praised the works of Leonardo DiCaprio and Ryan Gosling, citing the two as his acting inspirations.

“They made smart choices,” he says of DiCaprio and Gosling. “They played people, not being ‘a white actor playing a person,’ them playing a person. When I play a person or profession, it’s black this, black that. It’s obvious that I’m black, but why do I have to be labeled as that?… Instead of taking something conceptually written for a black guy, I want the stuff that was written for a guy.”

couldn’t he just sum that all up with:

“i want to play roles that offer variety and showcase my acting.”

hell don’t even say anything.
you don’t see white actors saying this.
its like he wants to separate himself from “the blacks”.
so this all doesn’t look good with all the recent backlash he is getting.
oh and…
he doesn’t have any black acting inspirations?

oh michael.
tumblr_m5v70iKuTZ1qaf90uo3_250i can kinda see your side,
which is a “small” kinda,
but i have to admit that you fucked up.
kinda bad.
if you jump on a “black” movie to save face,
it will only make you look fake.
if you continue to do your “white” movies,
you’ll only look like the new “taye diggs”.
his people need to get in an emergency brain storm meeting ASAP.
well actually they did.
he sent an apology to essence magazine with the quickness:

I have been a professional actor for most of my life, but being regarded as a leading man is new to me and has taken some getting used to. Recently I had the opportunity to be featured on the cover of one of my favorite magazines. In the interview, several points that I shared were communicated in ways that do not reflect my true feelings and opinions. In addition, there were reports written about me elsewhere that simply aren’t true. I’d like to set the record straight.

First and foremost, I believe that Black Lives Matter – unequivocally and without exception. I have never said, written, snapchatted, tweeted, Instagrammed or implied anything to the contrary. Any report that states otherwise is a complete fabrication. I portrayed Oscar Grant in my first leading role in a feature film, Fruitvale Station. I am a founding member of the Blackout for Human Rights Network. I gave a speech just a few months ago on the importance of the Black Lives Matter Movement at the BET Awards. It is frustrating to see a false claim stirred up on social media which has caused my supporters to question where I stand on this crucial issue. But I am confident that my history and continued engagement with my community will speak louder than unfounded rumors.

Secondly, it is challenging to have a nuanced conversation about race and Hollywood period. This sensitive subject becomes even more complicated when you’re dealing with soundbites and articles. A simple idea or opinion can be abbreviated and distorted as it is communicated to readers out of context. Allow me to be clear about my ideas on roles traditionally reserved for White actors. My goal is for my choices and opportunities, as well as those of my fellow actors and actresses of color, to be predicated on our talent, ability and passion and not on false notions of what color an artist must be to play certain roles. I’ve had the honor to portray Black characters written and directed by Black filmmakers—a privilege that too few actors of color enjoy because of the challenges of Black artistry and access behind the camera. But in addition to those wonderful roles, I also want to have the option to play all kinds of parts with no door closed to actors and actresses like myself.

Lastly, my fans who are women mean the world to me. This is especially true of Black women, who as a group have supported my work long before the industry knew my name. I deeply regret and am ashamed that I said anything to disappoint or disparage them. I apologize with my whole heart for referring to women in the way that I did. The word ‘female’ used in the manner that I did is dismissive and strips women of their humanity. It is a slang term that guys sometimes use to sound slick and cool coming up. But words have power and I realize now more than ever that this careless language is dehumanizing, inappropriate, and immature. I’m a better man than that. This reference to women will not come out of my mouth publicly or in private again.

In all, although some of what I said was taken out of context, I take full responsibility for the interview and I apologize for the hurt and confusion it has caused. This has been an important lesson for me. I humbly ask my fans to grow with me, as I learn more about myself and this industry.
Thank you.


Are we done with Michael B Jordan?

we’ll see.
black and gay fans are extremely loyal.
you see #teambreezy is still ryding.
once you show signs of “new blackness”,
or show homophobia,
we are pretty much done with you.
i’ll throw him a compliment tho:

i’d let him lick me all over.
he’d have to leave right after tho.
he doesn’t get “cuddle time with a heavy chance of round 3”.

lowkey: i love how suddenly he is “ugly”.
before they would have let him beat it down with his new bawdy.
now he ugly.
i know the sistas are mad,
but lets not start being fake now.

  1. He’s never been attractive to me in the first place, but that’s just me. He should call up Raven Symone and that’s if the two of them aren’t already good pals.

    1. LMFAO.

      Although his comments were in BAD FUCKING taste (bad, bad), I still adore him. I see that publicist got in that ass though… That letter reeks of “don’t fuck up the promo”. Sometimes people need these close calls to wake they asses up. He better stop letting that YT acceptance fuck him up…

      …I still need to be his “mystery best friend” them paparazzi pictures.

  2. One woman said he looked like Scooby Doo with those ears. I calmly shut my laptop and climbed into a casket. LMAO!

    He’s not ugly, but you can definitely find someone that look like him or way better at any HBCU.

    A lot of people need to learn from Beyoncé and not do interviews at all. Just take nice pictures! Especially if you’re not as articulate as someone like Viola Davis.

    You’d think with that disaster that was Fantastic Four he’d be a little more humbled. Then singling out black people about feeling some type of way about him dating Kendall Jenner when white ppl dragged him like he was in Mississippi circa 1950 when they found out he was playing Johnny Storm?

    Good day sir!

    He’s not even a top notch actor like Denzel or Will. He’s a passing fad.

    1. ^i didn’t even know that fantastic four movie came out LOL

      he definitely fucked up.
      he got the whites and blacks on that ass.
      maybe he can star in some telenovelas to get the spanish vote?

    2. Wow didnt even think about the Black Human torch controversy thing.. Yes Black people supported and defended him while white people dawged his ass for being black ..and he still want to be new

  3. I always got that NEW Black feel from him..he the type to be the one black friend in the group of suburban borderline racist white dudes..Then he brung me back in with Fruitvale station..but then he lost me for good with these stupid ass comments..He just want to fit in..even if it means denouncing himself

  4. His long statement was likely written by his publicist or manager or agent. He said some ill-advised things. So young and so stupid.

  5. I think this is a learning lesson for him, you have to be careful how you word things. I understand where he was trying to come from as a black actor he want to plays roles where being back is not brought up or a factor, but what I think he fails to get is that he has had those roles in the past and they were not all that great.

    If you look at his tract record the biggest thing people know him from and has received the most praise is his role in fruitville station. A movie about a BLACK man on the last day of his life getting killed in a racist way. His other roles where he’s the token black character or playing a role that was written for a white person either don’t get passed it don’t do well ( Fantastic Four, or that Zach Efron bromance movie) enough for him to make the statements he made above.

    1. 🙌🙌 Then the thing is, fruitville station is only so big because BLACK people praised and supported it. He’s trying way too hard, the Kendall deal had nothing to do with race, it’s because she’s young as hell and a Kardashian.

      I loved the movie Chronicle, but his role was the definition of a token black character. Randomly inserted into the movie, has no key moments, and doesn’t stay until the end of the movie.

  6. I can see what he’s saying…. He worded it poorly but I get the point about acting roles…. as for having a white girl…. WHY A KARDASHIAN??? that’s like asking to get torn up by the media!!!! He wants to be a Will Smith type, but Will was smart to have a Jada to give him credibility among black women and yet still crossover… Barack has Michelle to anchor him with the sisters…his career will crumble if he keeps doing this…

  7. Not the smartest things to say but I see where he’s coming from with the acting roles bit. I still think its important for black artists of any kind to pay at least some homage -when asked- to another founding black artist in their craft (or not in their craft) that paved the way for them to even have the possibility to participate in the art and benefit mostly off of their struggles. Its okay to respect Leonardo DiCaprio etc. I do too (don’t care for Gosling lol) but at least throw in Denzel or a Morgan Freeman or something. At the very least, it’s just a matter of respect! It’s still important.

    I do agree to some degree that black or non-white actors/resses should have more options for role and shouldn’t be as limited by the colour of their skin, so he does have a point. Just because he’s saying he doesn;t want to be labelled the “black” this or the “black” that doesn’t automatically suggest he’s trying to denounce his blackness, I think the message he is trying to send is that within those labels are boundaries that bind actors or artists from exploring the full depths of their craft, and that labelling someone “the black___” is redundant and plain obvious in 2015. It’s not needed anymore. It’s just a way for us to remain segregated. He’s just advocating blacks get more opportunities than the one’s we are getting, but he didn’t say it well.

    In regards to Kendall Jenner…is he ACTUALLY dating her? I thought that was made up! (Ew, if he is) He really should have said “no comment” and not open the race discussion on it himself. Just not smart.

    I’m not quite hating on him yet though. He’s still cute, but now I’m watching with the side-eye (O.o) lol.

  8. Idk if it’s because I have a serious crush on him but I honestly don’t see a problem with his comments. I just think that he doesn’t know how to articulate himself clearly. He needs some type if media training.

  9. Yea, people have really been down his throat as of late. This man is fine and I’d beat it, no doubt about it lol. However, he is starting to act like a sellout, and he can keep that weak ass PR apology to be honest.

    About his comments about the movement, the whole purpose of the Black Lives Matter movement is because we do not feel like we are a part of All Lives Matter, which is something not only white people do not get, but some of our own. If all lives mattered, there would be no Black Lives Matter movement, period. People thinking we are singling ourselves from other races and shit, no we drawing attention to our lives, which we feel are not being valued.

  10. RIP. Fantastic 4 flopped. Creed will flop. Not looking good for his career.

    I don’t get this “I don’t see color/New Black movement.” Did he not see all the racist outrage when he played a role meant for a white man in Fantastic 4??? HE may not see color, but they see his black ass!

  11. I never found him attractive either. Weak chin. Nice body though. Questionable sexuality. And all around confused with his new found fame.

  12. Michael is fine as hell. Y’all need to chill on judging everything he or anybody else says. Live their lives and then maybe you can comment.

If you wouldn't say it on live TV with all your family and friends watching, without getting canceled or locked up, don't say it on here. Stay on topic, no SPAM, and keep it respectful. Thanks!
