Angela Bassett’s 16-year-old son pranks her with fake Michael B. Jordan death story trending viral TikTok… before receiving backlash
Angela Bassett’s son is receiving a wave of backlash after he joined the viral TikTok trend of faking the death of a celebrity.
Slater Vance, 16, shared photos of his parents — Angela, 64, and Courtney B. Vance, 62 — reacting to the false news that Wakanda Forever actor Michael B. Jordan is dead.
The 20-second deleted video showed him asking, “Did you hear this: Michael B. Jordan is dead at 35?”
Visceral reaction: The star had a terrified expression on her face as she put down a water bottle she was holding
The Waiting to Exhale star was speechless as she placed her hand on her chest while her jaw dropped.
Kourtney can be heard saying, “Whoa. You’re playing,” as Angela rushed toward her teenage son repeating, “Unh-uh.”
The longtime couple just got back from an outing and were checking on their son before things took a turn.
The silver screen siren, dressed in a beige cauldron jumpsuit, asked where he was ordering food, to which her son casually replied, “Check elephant.”

Bassett and Vance then started walking in the opposite direction before Slater stopped them, saying, ‘Wait. mom dad…’
The Some Love Affair star had a terrified expression on her face as she put down a water bottle she was holding.
She reached for her son’s phone before the snippet came to an abrupt end.
The blockbuster prank was especially bad because Angela dealt with the tragic loss of another Black Panther character, Chadwick Boseman, not so long ago.

Angela and Kourtney also share a daughter, Bronwyn Vance, 16, who is their nephew’s fraternal twin.
The children were welcomed via a surrogate in 2006, nine years after the couple tied the knot.
The lovebirds penned a book together, Friends: A Love Story, which was published in 2007.
