In a story that sounds more like a Netflix original movie (or a legit Hallmark holiday film), one girl got her true fairytale moment. According to ComicBook.com, one fan of Hollywood hunk—Michael B. Jordan—had one of her most imaginative dreams come true. What initially started as a hilarious Photoshopped image on Twitter, eventually sparked a viral media wildfire, and actually led one UK fan to meet Jordan himself during a recent red carpet event.
Michael B. Jordan has been having an electrifying year, kicking things off with his role as Killmonger in the wildly successful, Black Panther. Most recently, Jordan has reprised his role as the tough Adonis Creed in the hit film, Creed II, opposite of his love-interest, Tessa Thompson as Bianca.Most recently, a popular theme on Twitter has been trying to find lost connections. When one user tweeted out a throwback photo, she asked for the help of the entire internet for assistance in finding her long lost friend from a cruise ship vacation. In a surprising twist, her old friend got word of the news and tweeted back a response, recementing their old friendship.
Because the tweet got removed for whatever reason: for my children and grandchildren, pic.twitter.com/1IMERVnEIB— bolu babalola (@BeeBabs) December 1, 2018
When another Twitter user (@beebabs) received word of the reconnection, she decided to try a unique iteration of the trend in her own way. The fan, named Bolu, posted a clever image of herself and none other than actor Michael B. Jordan. In the caption, she wrote, “I met this guy on holiday this summer-we had such a great connection but I changed my number and we lost touch. Twitter do your thing.”. When faced with naysayers, she calmly denied any false accusations. This girl definitely gets an award for her seriously fierce attitude, alone!
Happy Twitter did it’s thing 🙌🏾🌹🙏🏾😂 Great meeting you (for the second time 🤷🏾♂️😂😂😂) https://t.co/JDeBxnJjTb— Michael B. Jordan (@michaelb4jordan) November 29, 2018
But wait, this story is only getting started. When the media received wind of Bolu’s antics, the universe found a way to take things to the next level.
Bolu was invited to meet Michael B. Jordan at a press event in the UK, and the pair took an actual photo together.
