There’s no doubt that Ryan Reynolds is a big fan of Marvel movies, however his praise of Black Panther isn’t getting the approval you’d expect.
While the film was screening across America, the Deadpool star tweeted, “BELIEVE. THE. HYPE. All hail the king #WakandaForever.”
People remember things though and social media crucified Reynolds for a plantation wedding he had with wife Blake Lively.
“u got married on a plantation,” a Twitter user tweeted. It is true. Reynolds and Lively got married at the Boone Hall Plantation in Charleston, South Carolina in 2012. Since, people have found the wedding negligent of the history of Black people.
Since making the initial tweet, Ryan Reynolds has not responded to any criticism. What do you think? Does he have a space to speak about Black Panther or nah? Let us know in the comment section. See Twitter's criticism of Ryan Reynolds below.

You don’t think it’s even a little fucked up to be all “Wakanda forever” when you literally got married standing on dust from the bones of murdered slaves?— Yes, You're Racist (@YesYoureRacist) February 18, 2018
The plantation setting “provided the charm, elegance, and magic of times past” according to the wedding planner, who has apparently never studied American history.— Michelle Tribe (@KittyBroadway) February 18, 2018
#LRT I always side eye when fandom conveniently forgets that about Ryan reynolds...yes he worked 10+ years to give us deadpool but that doesn't change that he got married on a PLANTATION— pocket (@pocketlass) February 18, 2018
