Idris Elba Responds to "I'm Sorry I'm Not Idris Elba"

The actor pokes fun at the Internet meme.

Published February 20, 2014

Idris Elba was the subject of a hilarious Internet meme this week, and the fun-loving actor is getting in on the joke. The fun started when "I'm Sorry I'm Not Idris Elba," a poem about a man lamenting his wife's (and all women's) obsession with the British hunk, went viral on Twitter.

"I'm just a regular man/ With a regular 9-5/ That does regular things/ I'm sorry I'm not Idris Elba," begins the poem. "I'm building companionship/ But you're building a Man Crush/ When I'm the one you should be crushing on."

Elba responded to the catchy stanza with a hunky selfie captioned, "I'm not sorry I'm Idris Elba."

The actor's effect on women has been well documented on and off the screen. Ladies worldwide were disappointed to discover that the notoriously private star is expecting a baby with girlfriend Naiyana Garth
