One of the most anticipated movies of 2018, “Black Panther”, will hit theaters in February. It has an all star line up of pure melanin with actors, Lupita Nyong’o, Chadwick Boseman, and Michael B. Jordon. Unfortunately, Jordon has been catching some flack over his personal dating life. Many aren’t feeling him playing in the movie because he is dating a white woman.

Jordon will play one of the main characters, Erik Killmonger, and this is not the first time that his fans let him know that they didn’t appreciate him dating a white woman. It was rumored that he dated Kylie Jenner back in 2015. According to NewsOne, when his fan base voiced their opinions about him dating Kylie Jenner, Jordan said, “A lot of Black fans were feeling like, ‘Oh, my God, he should have been with a Black woman’ and that whole thing. 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 fuck it is. It’s just the new world, you know what I mean?”
Today, it is rumored that he is dating Ashlyn Castro – her nationality has not been confirmed. Nonetheless, some people aren’t here for it.
Is this neccessary since Michael B. Jordon doesn’t even play the actual Black Panther in the film? Will you still go see the movie?
