Angela Bassett’s 16-year-old son apologizes after Michael B. Jordan joke

Angela Bassett’s 16-year-old son Slater Vance has issued an apology to Michael B. Jordan after receiving backlash for participating in a viral TikTok trend of faking a celebrity’s death.

In a since-deleted clip, Slater captured the reaction of his parents — Angela, 64, and Courtney B. Vance, 62 — to the fake news of the death of Wakanda Forever co-star Michael B. Jordan.

After deleting the video, Vance then shared an apology, stating, “I would sincerely like to apologize for participating in such a harmful trend.”

He went on to say, “I apologize to all of Michael B. Jordan’s family, extended family, and Michael directly, because he is my idol and participating in a trend like this is completely disrespectful.”

“I don’t wish any bad consequences of my actions on his family or my parents, because they don’t deserve any backlash.”

“I recognize that was a mistake and hope this can be a lesson for anyone who uses social media as a tool and a source of entertainment to truly understand that your actions can have consequences that go beyond you,” he added.

He ended the video by saying, “I apologize for any hurt my actions may have caused Mr. Jordan or my parents or anyone else who may have been involved in this, and I am truly, truly and Sincerely sorry.”

The now-deleted original 20-second clip showed him asking, “Did you hear this: Michael B. Jordan is dead at 35?”

The Waiting to Exhale star was at a loss for words as she put her hand to her chest as her jaw dropped.

Courtney could be heard saying, “Stop it. You’re playing,” as Angela rushed over to her teenage son, repeating, “Unh-uh.

The longtime couple had just returned from an outing and were checking on their son before things took a turn.

Dressed in a beige boiler jumpsuit, the silver-screened siren asked where he ordered food, to which her son casually replied, “Chik-fil-a.”

Bassett and Vance then started walking in the opposite direction before Slater stopped them, saying, “Wait. Mom dad…’

The What’s Love Got to Do With It star had a horrified expression on her face as she put down a water bottle she was holding.

She grabbed her son’s phone before the clip ended abruptly.

The trending prank was particularly disreputable because Angela dealt with the tragic loss of another Black Panther teammate, Chadwick Boseman, not too long ago.

Angela and Courtney also share a daughter named Bronwyn Vance, 16, their son’s fraternal twin.

The children were welcomed by surrogate in 2006, nine years after the couple got married.

The lovebirds wrote a book together called Friends: A Love Story, which was published in 2007.
