He's been facing rumors he may be gay for a while, but after a viral Instagram post claimed to have a sex tape of him with another man to prove it, Michael B. Jordan decided to finally address rumors about his sexuality.
According to The Inquisitr, Jordan decided to respond to the rumors after they crept up for a second time, when an alleged viral Instagram post reportedly claimed to have a gay sex video of the Creed star, and he recorded a video to address the speculation head-on, before seeming to change his mind about addressing things at all, instead wondering why he was even bothering to waste his time doing so.

"I usually don't comment creep but, you know, s**t today I got time," he said. "So look, whoever's angry, bitter, upset for whatever reason, grow the f**k up 'cause karma's real. And I usually take the high road. I usually don't day s**t, I just let it roll 'cause people are going to be people. Everybody they opinion. That's what the Internet's for. They going to say whatever."
"On second thought, why am I even giving energy to that s**t on this day," he added. "Y'all my fans. Y'all don't need to hear me ranting about some BS. Enjoy your family, enjoy your blessings, enjoy the people you hold close and cherish that."
It is the second time questions about the actor's sexuality were raised, after a Vanity Fair cover with director Ryan Coogler earlier this year, where Jordan's hand appears to be caressing Coogler's head in the photo, initially sparked rumors.
Jordan is not the only male actor who has responded to rumors about his sexuality recently. Criminal Minds actor Shemar Moore also addressed rumors about his potentially being gay in a recent interview with BET.
"I just think it's all silly. If you're gay, you're gay. I'm not, and I know that and I'm very comfortable with who I am and I love women," Moore said. "I've dated plenty of them. If you think I'm gay, send your girlfriend over to my house for the weekend and see what happens. For real. You can call that arrogant if you want to. I just call it confident. You can call me whatever you want, but you don't know me."
