Michael B. Jordan has given the petulant brats another win over cultural appropriation
June 23 (UPI) — Michael B. Jordan has apologized for the name of his new rum brand and will rename the brand.
The 34-year-old actor said Tuesday on Instagram Stories that he will change the name of his rum brand J’Ouvert after accusations that the name appropriates Caribbean culture.
I do believe rum IS part of Caribbean culture, so, this makes no sense, but the brats threw a tantrum, soooooooo, everyone else must appease them. Sorry, but FUCK THAT! Jordan should stand up, and tell the nutcases to take a flying leap. But, instead, he puckered up and kissed their behinds
“I just wanna say on behalf of myself & my partners, our intention was never to offend or hurt a culture (we love & respect) & hoped to celebrate & shine a positive light on,” Jordan wrote. “Last few days has been a lot of listening. A lot of learning & engaging in countless community conversations…”
“We hear you. I hear you & want to be clear that we are in the process of renaming,” he said. “We sincerely apologize & look forward to introducing a brand we can all be proud of.”
Cowardice, of course, is nothing to be proud of
