Michael B. Jordan says prejudice fueled backlash to dating rumor

SHARE Michael B. Jordan says prejudice fueled backlash to dating rumor

Even though Michael B. Jordan and Kendall Jenner never dated, the actor told GQ the backlash to that false rumor was driven by racial prejudice.

In the magazine’s new cover story, Jordan said, “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 [expletive] know. I don’t live my life to make other people happy.”

The “Fantastic Four” star noted the reaction from the black community was also driven by race. “It’s so weird, right? A lot of black fans were feeling, like. ‘Oh, my God, he should have been with a black woman.’ … I get it, but on the other hand, it’s like, relax. You know — it’s 2015. It’s OK!”
