Michael B Jordan meets fan behind viral Twitter joke about holiday romance
The pair met on the red carpet of Creed II.
Actor Michael B Jordan has met up with a fan after a Twitter joke containing a photoshopped image of the star went viral.
Adoring Jordan fan Bolu Babalola posted a mock plea for Twitter users to reunite her with a claimed holiday romance, and used a picture of the actor photoshopped into her own holiday snap.
Her post read: “I met this guy on holiday this summer – we had a such a great connection but I changed my number and we lost touch. Twitter do your thing.”
The viral joke has now led to Babalola and Jordan being united on the red carpet for the European premiere of Creed II.

The original tweet, using an online trope of asking users to find a friend or a romantic partner, was shared more than 20,000 times and liked around 140,000 times.
