For some odd reason, at the height of Black Panther mania, someone decided to type tough on Twitter about Michael B. Jordan and he had a strong clapback.
Fans learned a lot about Jordan after his 73 Questions video with Vogue went viral. One big reveal was that Jordan and his parents live together in California. He also mentioned his love of anime.
A Twitter user, bless his heart, thought it would be cute to come at Jordan, but unfortunately for him, he didn’t have his facts straight and Jordan came through with an epic response.
The Twitter user typed “Michael B Jordan Is A 5’9” Adult Man That Loves Anime & Lives With His Parents….Y’all Told Me All Of Those Things Were Unacceptable Though.”

He didn’t even @ Jordan, but the Black Panther Star caught wind of the tweet and decided to offer up the correct info.
“First of All I’m 6ft and they live with ME, put some respeck on my name. LOL…aaaand goku & naruto are real ones,” he tweeted.

Jordan looks every inch of his six feet. And really, what are the chances that the star of the biggest movie of the year is struggling so hard that he’s crashing on his parent’s couch? We’re going to go ahead and take Jordan’s word that his parents live with him and not the the way around. As far as the anime, hey, he’s cultured. Let that man live!
Fans were none too pleased with the Jordan hater and they piled on Twitter to take shots at the poster and to defend Jordan.

And of course because Twitter is a big thirst trap, some took the opportunity to shoot their shot with Jordan.
First of all I’m pregnant and it’s yours

It does not appear that Jordan’s co-star, push-up director, and rumored boo Lupita Nyong’o responded, but she just might offer up her own comments to the original poster. She is not shy about piling on the praise for her co-stars. They are a chummy bunch.
We’re pretty sure that Twitter user wants no parts of a Wakandan clapback.
