Kendall Jenner Dating 'Michael Jordan' Prompts Racist Reactions -- And Confusion Between The Actor Versus The Basketball Star

Paula Mooney

Kendall Jenner and Michael B. Jordan were spotted together at the Met Gala, and now folks on social media are having strong reactions to the potential new couple alert between Jenner and Jordan. First off, those who are confusing "Michael B." with his airiness, Michael Jordan, should know that the former is an actor whose IMDB page even states that he added his middle initial to his name just so he wouldn't be confused with the basketball legend.

That 28-year-old Jordan won plenty of acclaim for his lead role in the movie Fruitvale Station, and Kendall is plenty well known as the supermodel of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, one who was conveniently the subject of a Keeping Up With the Kardashians video clip that featured Kylie dishing on her "sister drama" with Kim and Khloe -- telling them that Kendall needed to start dating. Kylie, meanwhile, made her own news lately when that Jenner confessed to getting temporary lip fillers to pump up her pout, as reported by the Inquisitr.

Apparently, Kendall and Michael were captured together in photos, reports TMZ -- with Jenner seemingly close to Jordan upon leaving the Met Gala, with reports of the duo partying together afterward with a group of others, including Kylie, her boyfriend Tyga, and more folks.

Others, meanwhile, were more kind to the coupling, so if this is a lasting relationship -- one can only imagine what the Kendall-Michael couple name will become.
