so 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.”
wait a minute because i’m sniggling…
okay 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”,
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.
he doesn’t have any black acting inspirations?
i can kinda see your side,
which is a “small” kinda,
but i have to admit that you fucked up.
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.
Are we done with Michael B Jordan?
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.
