As he prepares for the quickly approaching premiere of his directorial debut, Creed III, Michael B. Jordan is more in his element than ever before. The actor’s schedule has been filled with meetings, photoshoots, and red carpet premieres recently, and he’s been bringing his best energy to them all. However, that doesn’t mean he won’t hesitate to check reporters over their past insults now that he’s in his prime.
Last week, the California-born entertainer stepped out for an early screening of his film. Ahead of the movie’s start time, he took a moment to chat with Lore’l of The Morning Hustle, who he accused of previously calling him corny. It’s since been confirmed that a cohost was actually the one to make the defamatory comment, which she doubled down on before also bringing Nick Cannon’s name into the conversation.
Michael Reacts to “Corny” Comments
When Lore’l told viewers that she and Jordan “go way back,” he called her out, saying, “Oh yeah, I was the corny kid, right?” The interviewer went on to defend herself and state that she was being misquoted before assuring the 36-year-old that “he is obviously killing things out here.” Before the multi-talent walked away, she added, “You’re not corny anymore.”
It didn’t take long for internet sleuths to pull up the audio of the past interaction, during which Dominique Da Diva had some things to say about Jordan. “You know what I really think deep down inside? I think that Michael B. Jordan is a nice, corny guy, and I don’t mean that as a slight,” she quipped at the time. “We all know the nice, corny guys treat you the best.”
Twitter Thirsts After MBJ
Regardless of the “corny” allegations he’s battling, the Black Panther star’s new Calvin Klein photos have reminded social media how much of a heartthrob he really is. Unleashed on Monday (February 27), the black and white images see Jordan posing in various colours of the brand’s form-fitting boxer briefs, putting his abs on full display. Obviously, it didn’t take long for thirsty replies to start pouring in.
“It’s going to take the rest of the day to recover from this,” Hulu’s official account wrote this afternoon. “We goin’ turn that creed into BREED,” and “All I would need is 10 minutes and every fluid from his body would be drained,” other, more salacious replies read.
