Michael B. Jordan is probably still wearing a big old smile on his face since his film “Creed II” already racked up over $55 million dollars in opening box office sales, making it the biggest debut for a Thanksgiving weekend release ever.
But before those numbers came in, Jordan received major support from people like Omari Hardwick, who posted a photo from the New York premiere. TV host Terrence J is also in the shot, as is Steelo Brim from the MTV show “Ridiculousness” and Senior Vice President of A&R at Roc Nation Lenny Santiago.
In the caption space, Omari stated that he was proud of Jordan and included an emoji of two bumping Black fists to show unity.
“The 5 Heartbeats? GangGang,” wrote the “Power” actor. “Thanks for getting us all out, lil bro. “@michaelbjordan #PROUD. #CREED.”
Women didn’t only like seeing all the men in one shot and dressed to the nines, they also loved the support they gave Jordan, and the guys appreciated it too. Especially in entertainment circles were jobs for Black actors are scarce, and it’s typically every artist for themselves.
“A group of sexy brothers in harmony and enjoying a laugh together. Thank you for this beautiful pic,” one person wrote.
“Love to see brothers coming together and it’s all happiness,” wrote another. “God bless you all.”
“I love y’all bond,” wrote someone else.
There were also people who loved the fact that everyone in the photo is successful, and the men were called perfect examples of Black excellence.
