Michael B. Jordan Wants Fans Not to ‘Tear’ Black Men Down for Their Dating Preferences

Michael B. Jordan is fed up with claims that he doesn’t date Black women. The “Fahrenheit 451” actor has been plagued with rumors throughout his entire career that he only prefers to date non-Black ladies.

But despite him shooting down those rumors time and time again, the claims still persist — especially when Jordan is caught out with a new, fairer skinned woman.

The issue may have stemmed from a Daily Mail report saying Jordan was spotted clubbing in San Tropez with long-rumored girlfriend Ashlyn Castro. But this week, the website posted photos of a buff Jordan boating with pals in the Mediterranean Sea. He sat opposite a male friend and a white female companion

“Y’all are wylin’ right now. Y’all are buggin’ … yes, I’m on vacation right now, OK? I’m traveling around,” he said on Instagram Live Wednesday, July 18 of continued claims he doesn’t date Black women. “News flash: it’s not a lot of Black women in Italy OK? It’s not, it’s just not. Sorry. … I’m reading through the comments and s—, y’all tearin’ ya boy up. It’s too much, man. Y’all doin’ too much.

“I like milk. I like chocolate milk — I love chocolate milk. And I like almond milk, strawberry milk. You know the cinnamon toast crunch? The milk after that, I like that, too. That’s pretty good. I like milk period. Y’all just doin’ a lot. Y’all gotta chill.”

Jordan’s pal also co-signed that the white woman photographed with them was his girlfriend, not Jordan’s.

“Y’all gotta start putting more positivity out there. As a Black man, you gotta do what you gotta do in the sense of you gotta enrich your community and what not. But you gotta stop putting out all this negative s— … why tear us down? For what?”

Still, fans were left unimpressed.

“Michael B. Jordan just got on IG live justifying his love for white women. He said ‘I love all milk’ including chocolate and vanilla. F—ing trash.”

“Girl I was on his live calling him everything under the sun. He had the nerve to say ‘it’s not that many Black women in Italy’ because he is on vacation. GO FIND THEM! Lmaooo.”

“To clarify for some, I think OP, like myself, is more grossed out by the fact that he felt he even needed to justify his dating habits to strangers especially using those terms. I couldn’t give a damn less who he dates just don’t slander the women you don’t go for. Simple.”
