Well this gets awkward quick!
Well it just wouldn’t be show business if there weren’t some weird and uncomfortable questions in the mix. Unfortunately for Jordan and Mara, when they met with DJs from Atlanta, Gerogia’s Rock 100.5 Mornings, those questions came off both racist and sexist.
In the film, Jordan plays Johnny Storm and Mara plays his adopted sister, Sue Storm. The simplest Google search would have presented this explanation if the shock-jocks weren’t so narrow-minded that they couldn’t wrap their minds around the idea of Jordan and Mara’s characters being brother and sister.
In a video of the interview (below) that just surfaced, the DJs ask the line of questions:
“From what I’ve seen, you’re brother and sister ├óΓé¼┬ª Am I missing something? ├óΓé¼┬ª You’re white and you’re black. How does that happen?”
The radio hosts went on to make some very sexist comments regarding the 32-year-old-actress’s hair and toes! Check out the video (below) for yourself!
