President Donald Trump had sent waves across the news earlier when he had spoken about many African-based countries and referred to them as “sh*tholes” during a meeting with Congressmen.
Twitter went crazy over this story, and then, Marvel’s Wakanda was dragged into this mess. Writer, Sara Benincasa (@SaraJBenincasa) offered journalists $300 to ask President Trump on his opinion about America’s relationship with Wakanda.
“I am offering $300 to the journalist who very seriously asks Trump his opinion on our nation’s relations with Wakanda and gets the question and answer recorded live on video,” Benincasa tweeted.
Wakanda, as we all know is a fictional country that had been created by Jack Kirby and Stan Lee and is home to the Black Panther. This country made its debut in Fantastic Four #52 (1966). This country is located in northeastern Africa.
Many Twitter users have chipped in to this post by Sara.
“If you follow this up with a question (that he answers) about whether Wakandan/American relations are complicated by them granting asylum to the terrorist fugitives James Buchanan Barnes, I will double the offer,” Twitter use Alex Zalben had added.
A few celebrities have also joked about this. Diplo, a DJ had added that Trump had not been to Wakanda.
This movement now has a hashtag — #WakandaGate.
