On Tuesday, Jan. 2, Twitter users had a conniption when they found out about Jordan's "rumored" beau. It isn't the fact that the Creed actor is allegedly dating someone, it's supposedly the fact that the potential girlfriend isn't black.
Apparently, a few women, if not all, were vocal about why they weren't too happy about Jordan's new bae. The women even called for a boycott on Jordan's work, because he was dating outside of his race.
Michael B. Jordan Breaks Hearts

Yall really shocked that Michael B Jordan has a non Black Girlfriend? I don't expect any average-successful Black Man to have a Black Woman. Especially not one not that's light skin or racial ambigious. We ain't never gonna be chosen by them. pic.twitter.com/wXAuolGvvf — UglyIG_Model (@ILuhsHappoIDo) January 2, 2018

Erik Killmonger Is Coming Soon
Although, the 30-year-old has yet to confirm the rumors about his supposed new beau, Jordan has stated that the craziest rumor he has heard about himself is that he doesn't date black women.
In an interview with GQ, the actor mentioned that people can like each another and not be the same race.
"People can like one another, not necessarily from the same history or culture or whatever the f--k it is, you know what I mean? Jordan said.
While rumors about who the Fantastic Four star chooses to date might be false, his role as Erik Killmonger in Marvel's newest film, Black Panther is true.
Jordan will join Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong'o, and Forest Whitaker in the drama, fantasy film that is set to hit theatres on Feb. 16.
