UTS favorite Michael B Jordan is promoting a new film (‘Creed’) by covering GQ (his 2nd cover) magazine’s October issue.
The lengthy article, however, doesn’t exactly paint Jordan in the most flattering light.
He sounds more than a little douchey talking about wanting people to forget about that other Michael Jordan when they hear his name and his fans ‘disappointment’ on his colorblind dating stance.
“It’s the world we live in,” the October cover model told GQ magazine. “They see white and black. I don’t. A lot of black fans were feeling like, ‘Oh, my God, he should have been with a black woman’ and that whole thing,” the Fantastic Four star said. “I get it, but on the other hand it’s, like, relax. You know – it’s 2015. It’s okay! People can like one another, not necessarily from the same history or culture or whatever the f— it is.”
Maybe it’s just me, but I’m tired of the culture wars. It’s exhausting opening up Twitter every day to find another celebrity being dragged for comments that don’t live up to our idealized version of them.
Would I prefer MBJ be a good guy/role model? Of course.
But MBJ is merely an on-screen fantasy and he owes absolutely nothing to his fans or admirers but doing good acting work.
