AceShowbiz - Cam'ron dissed Michael B. Jordan and Jonathan Majors, but it quickly backfired. The rapper, whose real name is Cameron Ezike Giles, has been dragged online after he made an apparent homophobic comment on these two actors' photos.
Over the weekend, the hip-hop star posted on his Instagram page two pictures of the "Creed III" star posing close to each other. In one of the snaps, Jonathan hugged Michael from behind, while another image has the two hunks lean their heads against each other.
Cam'ron seemingly took issue with the intimacy shown in the images. In the caption, he suggested that he was put off from watching the boxing drama because of the show of bromance between the two actors. "The reason I didn't go see creed," so he wrote.
The 47-year-old star soon faced backlash as his post engaged in potentially homophobic or hyper-masculine rhetoric. "Coming from the N***a that popularized men wearing pink fur? A little hypocritical don't you think?" one person wrote in the comment of his post. "It's giving Camron walked so they could run... check ya homophobia that s**t ain't cute."
Another user penned, "Cam is also 50 years old still saying 'pause and no homo'." A third critic slammed Cam'ron over his unwarranted hateful comment, "Ya'll manhoods be so threatened. For WHAT reason? .. smh."
"So we don't support brotherhood and community?! That don't work! Let's celebrate these brothas for creating atomic work that assures Black success generally!" a fourth user urged, while another explained, "That movie line was about their friendship more than it was about boxing. And that's what made it great! this photo symbolizes brotherhood. How you perceive the photo is your right. That's all."
Someone else implored people to normalize intimacy between black men as saying, "Black love and men embracing each other should be a normal everyday occurrence like it is in other cultures. The reason why a lot of these men out here kissing other men is because they didn't get that type of intimate relationship with their own fathers. Male children also need kisses and hugs from their dads. But y'all don't want to talk about that!"
"That movie came out before these pictures hit the internet so this can't be the reason you didn't see the movie. You look like a hater and you reaching for this one," one other user claimed, as someone told Cam'ron that the movie "made $262 million at the box office. They good."
