Oh, Snap! Watch Michael B. Jordan Completely Shut Down A White Reporter Demanding He Do The #WakandaSalute

Not today, Colonizer.

Published May 14, 2018

First, the internet caught wind of Chadwick Boseman's apparent fatigue from doing the now iconic "Wakanda Forever" salute. Now, another one of his Black Panther co-stars, Michael B. Jordan, is being talked about for checking a white reporter over the very same subject.

While the salute has now become synonymous with a worldwide sense of Black pride, the truth is, it really originated and is meant for the natives of the fictional land of Wakanda, a place where Jordan's character, Erik Killmonger, was actually not from.

Unfortunately, the reporter, who admitted to having seen the box-office-shattering film prior to their sit-down, seemingly overlooked this fact, and got a not-so-pleasant reaction from the movie star.

After Jordan asked, "So, you saw the movie now, right?" the reporter reached in to dab him before motioning for him to do the salute, along with her.

Seemingly annoyed, Jordan quickly stressed, "I ain't from Wakanda."

Watch the hilarious exchange, below:
