Why Does Michael B. Jordan and Jonathan Majors’ Relationship Bother People? 2023

Cam’Ron, a member of the hip-hop group Dipset, is once again in trouble for his social media comments. This time, the Purple Haze artist targeted Jonathan Majors and Michael B. Jordan from Creed III. Cam’Ron posted two black-and-white pictures of the actors over the weekend for unknown reasons. The caption beneath the image reads, “The reason I did not go see Creed.”

Cam’Ron is the latest person to voice their disapproval on social media.

In the comments, many criticized his ignorance and interpreted his words as an attempt to diminish the close friendship Majors and Jordan boast of. The playful photographs, which were published last month in an article by The New York Times, were met with an inundation of homophobic responses that rejected the notion of two African-American male actors displaying any form of affection.

Ironically, in the late 1990s and early 2000s, Cam’Ron was notorious for wearing pink, which challenged gender roles and expectations in hip hop. DJ, songwriter, and educator Skillz responded to the rapper’s problematic statement by expressing the sentiments of many individuals

“We are our own worst enemies smh. I tell all my homies I love em…Why? Cuz I do! Sometimes it throws em off but Ion care, Ima keep saying that ish. Tomorrow aint promised. We all getting older man & death is definitley certain. Its already hard enough out here for black men as it is bro. You cant even show love or accept it without your own trying to make it out to be something else. I [don’t] know Micheal B Jordan but I know losing Chadwick was hard on him….cuz shit it was hard on all of us.”

He continued:

“We clowned that man before he died not even knowing how sick he really was. Maybe Jonathan came into Mikes life when he needed a friend…a bro. How come men cant have healthy relationships with other men without [their] masculinity or sexuality being questioned? I put up a post last week saying ‘Black men its ok to smile in your pictures’ and got nothing but dudes saying ‘naaah Ion do that ish Skillz’ You [don’t] do what? Smile? You [don’t] see nothing wrong with that? Maaan the times we living in goofy af.”

It’s disappointing that Cam’Ron has chosen to use his platform to make fun of Black people, particularly since he knows from personal experience the scrutiny and hatred that Black men have always encountered. The emcee’s brazen display of duplicity appears to be nothing more than a stratagem to remind the world of his masculinity, but this time it backfired.
