Michael B. Jordan - Torch - Fantastic Four

 

When Michael B. Jordan was cast as Johnny Storm/The Human Torch in the Fantastic Four we did the wop celebrated him breaking barriers and landing a huge role.

Unfortunately, everyone wasn’t as happy about it as we were.

As his fans congratulated him, the floodgates of hate opened with racist internet trolls slamming the actor for adding melanin and swag to their beloved blue-eyed blonde-haired comic book hero.

The 28-year-old actor is breaking his silence in a statement posted on Entertainment Weekly where he says, “I’ll be the one to shoulder all this hate. I’ll take the brunt for the next couple of generations.”
