While attending the recent Creed III premiere event, Michael B. Jordan came face to face with one of his high school batchmates who used to bully him for his name. Lore’l, currently the host of the podcast, Undressing Room used to bully Jordan for his name, and in her latest episode, she shared,
“You know what’s so crazy? I went to school with Michael B. Jordan at a point in life, and to be honest with you, we teased him all the damn time because his name was Michael Jordan. Let’s start there, and he was no Michael Jordan. He also would come to school with a headshot, we would make fun of him like, ‘What you gonna do with your stupid headshot!?’ And now look at him!”
They’re mad because they were the bullies who are losers now and are projecting their anger towards their sad lives onto MBJ and everyone who supported him for doing that lol

I didn’t see anything wrong with what he said 🤷🏽♀️ and he continued the interview and she was even able to ask Jonathan Majors a few questions…

I agree 100% he's allowed to feel how he needs to feel about something that happened to him as a child that she was a part of. It doesn't matter that she's a woman. He didn't disrespect her at all. He reminded her and moved on and she got the damn hint. That's it!

It’s a lot of ppl on this app saying it’s “normal” to get bullied in school…I think it’s because they were the ones doing the bullying or they were told to over look it when it happened to them…

When the two of them met each other, they immediately knew each other, and Michael B. Jordan called her out in a playful way by saying, “Oh yeah, I was the corny kid, right?” to which Lore’l replied, “But yeah, [you are] obviously killing things out here…you’re not corny anymore”. Though it was a friendly conversation between the two, many have taken it way more seriously and have called out Michael B. Jordan for his approach to the situation. Many have even come to the rescue of Jordan from all the hate he was receiving on social media for this interaction between the two and claimed it was right from his side and are supporting him to the end.
