People announced last week that Jordan, the “Creed” and “Black Panther” star, was named this year’s sexiest man. Johnson was previously given the accolade in 2016 and made the list again in 2020, but ranked lower than Jordan.
In a post on Instagram over the weekend, the “Jumanji” star talked about his recent interview with the magazine and congratulated Jordan on his win before quoting a recent tweet from Trump that implied he, like the president, was not giving up the title he won in 2016.
“Fun talkin’ about ‘living each day to the fullest’ in @people’s SEXIEST MAN ALIVE issue. Congrats to my brother @michaelbjordan on the new sexy crown,” Johnson wrote.
He added: “I CONCEDE NOTHING.“
Trump later clarified the tweet by saying Biden “only won in the eyes of the FAKE NEWS MEDIA.”
“I concede NOTHING!” Trump said. “We have a long way to go.”
The Trump campaign, claiming unsubstantiated voter fraud, is attempting to overturn the results of the election, which Fox News projected Biden won weeks ago.
Johnson broke with his previous policy of remaining apolitical, with the exception of a brief flirtation with a 2020 presidential run himself, when he announced he was endorsing Biden in late September.
I’m going to be pushing this political conversation just a little bit more,” he began a video at the time in which he conducted an interview with Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris. “Look, I’ve got friends in all parties, but the one thing we can always agree on is the conversation and the dialogue, and where that conversation lands is always the most critical part. Now, this is something that I’ve certainly not done in the past, so I’m going to go big. You guys know me, if I go, I go big!”
He added: “As a registered Independent for years now with centrist ideologies, I do feel that Vice President Biden and Sen. Harris are the best choice to lead our country, and I am endorsing them to become president and vice president.”
