Press: Michael B. Jordan Meets Fan Who Tweeted A Photoshopped Picture Of Them Together

The actor praised Twitter for doing its thing.

Michael B. Jordan has thanked Twitter for meeting a fan of his for the “second time.”

The “Creed II” actor responded on Thursday to a tweet by Twitter user Bolu Babalola, who hilariously shared a photo of herself with Jordan photoshopped in.

The photo caught the attention of social media users, and eventually led to Babalola meeting Jordan in person and getting a real photo to cherish.

“Happy Twitter did [its] thing,” Jordan wrote. “Great meeting you (for the second time).”

It all started when Babalola shared the photoshopped photo last Saturday teasing that she met “this guy” over the summer but had “lost touch” with him.

She told BuzzFeed News on its morning show this week that she was inspired to share the photo, created by her friend, after reading about two friends who reunited via Twitter after meeting on a cruise ship years prior.

“It just got out of control, I was not expecting it to go that far,” Babalola said of her viral tweet.

Babalola then attended a Q&A for “Creed II” in London and took the opportunity to ask a question about the film – and to inform Jordan that her photoshopped photo had made its rounds on Twitter.

“We gotta get a real picture now,” Jordan responded during the discussion according to a video posted to Twitter.

Indeed the pair later took a photo together, and Twitter users who had been following Babalola’s story celebrated on social media.

Earlier this year, Jordan made headlines when he surprised a teen who brought a life-size cardboard cutout of the actor to her high school prom.

The actor brought the lucky fan, Audeva Agyeman, to the set of “Creed II.” She told HuffPost back in August that it was “one of the best days” of her life.

Press: Michael B Jordan: ‘What I’m trying to do, represent and build is universal’

Press: Michael B Jordan: ‘What I’m trying to do, represent and build is universal’

From The Wire to Black Panther, Michael B Jordan is an actor as determined to break down diversity barriers as he is to break box office records. It’s an ongoing fight for the star of Creed II and when it comes to getting his life lessons across he doesn’t pull any punches…

In his words: “Why does it take somebody to feel like they’re close to us for us to see their humanity? Why can’t we see the humanity in people that are distant from us?”
In other words: Don’t just respond to the needs of family and friends. If we see suffering, we should have empathy with whoever is in pain because we understand their plight even we don’t know them.

In his words: “Sometimes you’ve gotta hide the medicine in the food. You can’t slap somebody in the face with facts all the time. It’s too harsh.”
In other words: If you have a message to get across, don’t feel you have to force it on people. If you can communicate in more subtle ways, it can be just as effective.

In his words:“I think redemption is about righting a wrong – and in that pursuit it’s about trying. You can stumble, you can make mistakes, but it’s about trying to do the right thing.”
In other words: Striving to do what’s right is more important than how you do it. You might take a wrong turn along the way but working out the right destination justifies the journey.

In his words: “Sometimes you gotta go with your first instinct. You gotta go with your gut. That’s kind of how I live my life: you gotta go with your gut.”
In other words: Don’t overthink things. When you are dealing with your own life, trust in yourself that you will make the right decision.

In his words: “When you got to make the decisions, when you get a chance to employ people, put key people of colour [and] women in those positions that are really going to make a difference.”
In other words: The world is changing and we all have a duty to support diversification, be it people of colour, women, LGBTQ people or those with disabilities. All lives matter.

In his words: “To the trolls on the internet, I want to say: get your head out of the computer. Go outside and walk around. Look at the people walking next to you. Look at your friends’ friends and who they’re interacting with. And just understand this is the world we live in. It’s OK to like it.”
In other words: Don’t hide behind a screen and preach hate. It’s a big world out there and life is too short to spend it promoting negativity. You won’t change your prejudices by closing yourself off.

In his words: “I’m first and foremost a black man, but what I’m trying to do, represent and build is universal.”
In other words: The message of inclusion isn’t about race or gender; it’s about equality and doing right by all.

In his words: “My path is my path. I can’t take nothing away from nobody and nobody can take nothing away from me. I’m running my race. But we can still encourage each other.”
In other words: Don’t allow others to discourage your ambitions and don’t do the same to them. Offer words of support. That way, we can all help each other.
