Angela Bassett‘s son pulled a fairly imply prank on his mother to cap off the 12 months — telling her Michael B. Jordan had simply died (not true) … however he realized it wasn’t a good suggestion.
The actress’s 16-year-old, Slater, posted a since-deleted video to his TikTok account this weekend … a fast 20-second clip exhibiting him break some would-be tragic information to AB — specifically, that one other one in every of her ‘Black Panther’ costars had handed away.
He’s clearly attempting to get a loopy response out of Angela, and boy does he get it … you see his mother freaking out, saying “No” repeatedly as she approaches to see what he is seeing.
It seems like Slater would possibly’ve mentioned he was joking within the clip, and we do not get to see what Angela’s response is as soon as she realizes the loss of life story is pretend. But, we think about it wasn’t nice … as a result of, like we mentioned, Slater took the video down — however he is getting dragged regardless.
His video was captured by people and is spreading like wildfire on social media … and the consensus appears to be — dude, how might you do this to your mother?!? Even as a prank.
Of course, Angela has already skilled super loss on this entrance with the passing of Chadwick Boseman. As everybody is aware of, each Chadwick and Michael starred within the authentic ‘Black Panther’ … and the latter made a cameo within the current sequel. So, they’re all tight.
Neither Angela nor Slater have addressed the joke-gone-wrong because it went up. But, in mild of the backlash, it is in all probability greatest to depart these pretend loss of life bulletins in 2022.
Lord is aware of we already received our justifiable share of actual deaths this 12 months, particularly in these previous couple of days. Considering every little thing the ‘BP’ household has gone by means of, one thing like this may be manner an excessive amount of.
A beneficial lesson realized, certainly.
