Michael B. Jordan just delivered an efficient burn to disgraced star Roseanne Barr.
Accepting the award for “Best Villain” at the MTV Movie and TV Awards on Saturday, Jordan dropped a mad zinger on Barr, whose show was cancelled by ABC following her racist tweets about Valerie Jarrett, a top adviser for former President Barack Obama.
“I thought for sure Roseanne had that in the bag.”

Barr revealed that she “begged” Disney/ABC Television Group President Ben Sherwood not to cancel the show, and blamed Ambien for the remarks.
Although some were surprised Avengers: Infinity War villain Thanos didn’t take home the gold, Killmonger supporters were unsurprisingly on board, especially with Jordan’s Roseanne dig.

Jordan also took the moment to ask Black Panther fans to cease asking his fellow co-star Chadwick Boseman, Prince T’Challa himself, to do the “Wakanda forever” salute in the street. “Y’all taking the ‘forever’ thing a little too seriously,” he said.
Efficient use of stage time, hey?
