Michael B. Jordan Speech at 2018 MTV Movie and TV Awards

Michael "Bae" Jordan Expertly Burned Roseanne During His MTV Awards Acceptance Speech

We knew that Michael B. Jordan winning the 2018 MTV Movie & TV Award for best villain was going to be amazing from the second his Creed costar Tessa Thompson announced him as "Michael Bae Jordan." And in true bae fashion, Michael celebrated his win with an acceptance speech filled with gems — including a perfectly timed Roseanne Barr diss. As if we need another reason to love him!

While being recognized for his work as Erik Killmonger in Black Panther, Michael also put forth an official request on behalf of his costar Chadwick Boseman: please stop making him say "Wakanda forever" on the streets. "Y'all are taking the 'forever' thing a little too seriously," Michael joked. Watch the full video of his speech above, then watch show host Tiffany Haddish swap roles with Michael for a hilariously "horny" remake of an iconic Black Panther scene.
