This past week actor Michael B. Jordan caught some flack for accepting his new role as the Human Torch (A White character) from racists. He wanted to leave you guys a message, “They’ll still pay to see it.” 

TMZ reports:

Michael B. Jordan has a message for all the hating comic book fans who say a BLACK man can’t play the extremely WHITE Human Torch — CHILL OUT!

Jordan just got the the role of Johnny Storm in the upcoming Fantastic Four remake — even though in comics, the character’s always been blonde-haired, blue-eyed … and has a white sister Sue Storm (Kate Mara got that role).

Last night at Chi Lin in WeHo … we asked MBJ what he would say to critics who said things like: “Don’t cast a black guy to play a white super hero. It’s just not right!” … and “no no no no no no and nooooooo!!!”
