Michael B. Jordan sat down with Taylor Rooks to discuss his new movie, Journals for Jordan. During the interview, the subject of his MCU character, Eric Killmonger, came up. Jordan proceeded to tell Taylor Rooks that Killmonger isn’t a villain. We have provided the interview below.
News of his bold statement made its way to the web and the web had much to say. Let’s look at some of the best responses to Killmonger not being a villain.
#killmonger was right. You have to break a few eggs to make an omelette 🤷🏾♂️. He wanted to secure the dividends that his ancestors were owed and he had to get it by any means necessary.

Doesn’t mean I didn’t agree philosophically

It’s truly ludicrous. From the World’s perspective, #killmonger was a dangerous terrorist who basically wanted a global race war. Then he kills Wakandans who support #tchalla mercilessly. C’mon now. That’s no king. #blackpanther2 #BlackPanther

Just watched black panther again with my kid. I remember Women loved the killmonger character…this man shot his girl and roughed up the old lady in the sacred room.

Y’all just need to scrap the whole thing at this point, Killmonger shot his girl in the first 20 mins, & she maybe had like one speaking line.
I’m not tryna watch some weird redemption sh*t. https://t.co/flsco0aSl3
