Entertainment Weekly Cover Has Better Look at (and Really Stupid Jokes About) Black Panther


Michael Muller

Meow? Real Housewife? Seriously?

“Hmm, we can’t joke about him being black, so let’s joke about him being a panther.” Good one. Why no captions on the other two? Their blatantly uncomfortable-looking faces surely suggest something like, “Dammit, my butt itches,” or “GottaPeeGottaPeeGottaPee!” But no. “Meow” is what you went with.

But hey, maybe I’m wrong and this will draw a lot of Real Housewives fans to a Marvel movie for the first time.

I like the costume, by the way. And I think the toys will sell pretty well too.
