There is no shortage of celebrities encouraging fans to vote and posting “I Voted” sticker selfies to social media. Snoop Dogg posted a video to his YouTube channel explaining why this November will mark the first time he votes in a general election. LeBron James launched nonprofit organization “More Than A Vote” to fight Black voter suppression and help folks get excited to vote early. Taylor Swift announced she would be voting for Joe Biden and made a batch of adorable Biden/Harris 2020 frosted cookies. And Michael B. Jordan perhaps did the most to convince people to vote when he posted a shirtless selfie.
The Creed star posted the thirst-trap to Twitter and Instagram on Tuesday evening, where it quickly racked up thousands of comments and likes. The lip bite and bare chest mark a new type of, ahem, personal aesthetic for the actor, whose IG feed favors a more editorial, curated kind of vibe.
He is also reminding folks to vote early, emphasis on the early, seeing as we are very much still in the middle of a global pandemic under an administration doing its best to suppress votes.
We love a strategical, philanthropical thirst trap.
Which is basically how everyone on social media also feels about the photo.
Only Michael B. Jordan is allowed to thirst-trap while wearing a cross. Kindly do not @ me.
