Michael B. Jordan had the ultimate opportunity everyone who has been bullied before has been looking for: to confront their bullies head-on.
Michael was being interviewed by his high school friend turned reporter Lore’l on Creed III’s red carpet, and when Lore’l mentioned the fact that they were mates, Michael immediately asked her about how she tagged her the “corny” kid.
Lore’l just like every disgraced bully tried to downplay her actions but Michael was firm and called her out. Well, Lore’l was quick to change the topic and shamefully admitted that Michael is not the “corny” kid anymore but a great deal.

Michael B. Jordan went off on a popular reporter Lore’l, while on the red carpet – and put her on BLAST, Media Take Out confirmed.
During a Friday night’s premiere event for Creed III, the actor/director took some time to speak with Morning Hustle host Lore’l. Lore’l, who grew up with Michael, immediately congratulated him on the new film and revealed they were classmates in New Jersey.
“We go way back, all the way back to Chad Science [Academy] in Newark,” she said.
“Oh yeah, I was the corny kid, right?” Jordan responded, referring to her remarks on a podcast – where she described high school Michael as “corny.”
Lore’l laughed off the Jordan’s comment and insisted she was “misquoted”; however, the actor pushed back and said he directly heard Lore’l call him “corny.”
“No you did not hear me say that! I said we used to make fun of the name,” she continued, before changing the subject. “But yeah, he is obviously killing things out here.”
Lore’l went on to ask Jordan about his Creed III experience as well as his rumored project with Will Smith. She then closed the interview by telling Jordan, “Well, you’re not corny anymore.”
Was Michael doing too much … or was he warranted in confronting his alleged high school bully?
Oooh no! He didn’t overact, he should have done a little more than that.
