People say they are boycotting Marvel’s Black Panther because actor is “dating outside his race”

Micheal B. Jordan stars in upcoming Georgia-filmed Marvel movie Black Panther, but recently, rumors went viral because of Jordan’s girlfriend is not black.

Apparently, a few women are not happy that Michael B. Jordan was reportedly dating a white woman. When pictures hit the internet of Jordan and his rumored girlfriend, a few people voiced their displeasure. These vocal voices called for a boycott of Jordan’s work because he dated outside his race.

While some called for a boycott, others pointed out the double standard. For example, many people praised Meghan Markle and Serena Williams for dating outside of their race but not Michael B. Jordan.

Considering the fact that Black Panther is going to be one of the biggest movies of the year, and the first superhero movie to feature a Black lead, it seems highly unlikely that anyone will follow through with a boycott.
