An unusual birthday gift for Naomi Osaka by Ellen DeGeneres

Kindly share this:

A birthday tweet by Ellen DeGeneres to Naomi Osaka is causing ripples in sports and entertainment world.  Ellen DeGeneres, the host of Ellen DeGeneres Show, tweeted to wish the tennis star happy 21st birthday with a shirtless photo of Michael B. Jordan, the Creed II actor.

In the tweet, Ellen presented Jordan to Naomi as a gift saying:”I got you a present”.

Osaka, who won the U.S. Open over Serena Williams in September, then reacted to DeGeneres’ tweet: “pls block me”.

See the tweet below:

In response, Michael B Jordan tweeted a “more recent” photo of  himself to Naomi. He then gave a personal invitation to Naomi to the Premiere of Creed II, a movie with Michael B. Jordan as a star actor.

See the tweet and Naomi’s response below:

This is the Tweet inviting Naomi to a date with Michael B. Jordan and the response by Naomi.

It should be recalled that Naomi once told Ellen DeGeneres on Ellen DeGeneres show that Michael B. Jordan was her celebrity crush. The invitation to the Premiere of “Creed II” therefore was a welcome development for Naomi. And her response bares it all.

So, is it all thanks to Ellen DeDegeneres for an “unusual birthday present?”
