For some odd reason, there’s a prank currently trending on TikTok where kids are tricking their parents into thinking their beloved celebrities passed away. With that said — Slater Vance, the 16-year-old son of longstanding actors Courtney B. Vance and Angela Bassett, has issued a public apology after receiving backfire and dissent for a viral video informing both parents that director/actor Michael B. Jordan was dead. In the short video on TikTok, both of Slater‘s parents are in a room with him, where he abruptly asks them if they had caught wind of Michael B. Jordan‘s death.

In the footage, Angela Bassett is visibly jolted when hearing Michael B. Jordan might’ve perished, gasping and muttering, “Uh-uh, uh-uh,” before grabbing her mobile device as his father is heard saying, “Stop it, you playing” in the background. Before the video shuts off, you can see Slater thinly grinning from satisfaction of shaking up his mom. Considering Bassett starred in Black Panther and had already lost friend and colleague, Chadwick Boseman, it’s safe to say that Slater’s Michael B. Jordan‘s ‘death prank’ was more tasteless than comical.  Obviously, any death prank is tasteless, but the TikTok trend continues.

The following statement is what Slater Vance shared on his Instagram account, “I would sincerely like to apologize to Michael B. Jordan’s entire family, his extended family, and him directly as he is an idol of mine.” He continued in the video apology, “Taking part in a trend like this is completely disrespectful. I don’t wish any bad ramifications of this of my actions upon his family nor my parents as they deserve none of the backlash.”

With his apology, the teen of Angela Bassett and Courtney Vance took the time to forewarn potential prank participants and other TikTok users. “I hope this can be a teaching lesson to anyone out there who also uses social media as a tool and a source of entertainment to truly understand that your actions can have consequences that extend beyond you.” Slater added, “I apologize for any hurt my actions may have caused Mr. Jordan, my parents, or anyone else who could have been involved in this. And I am truly, truly, and sincerely sorry.”
