Michael B. Jordan, Black Panther actor and Lupita Nyong'o's push-up plaything, has taken to Twitter to defend himself against being a nerd for liking anime. Jordan has talked about his love for anime on multiple occasions over the years, most recently while eating spicy chicken wings on Complex's Hot Ones.
This piqued the attention of one Twitter user, who said that alongside his living arrangements and height, maybe he and Jordan had more in common than he thought.

Jordan quickly retorted, asking for respect and taking the chance to praise Dragonball Z favorites Goku and Naruto.

Naturally, this led to someone else saying he only likes "mainstream" anime. Not the case, according to Jordan.
