One more boy who is a victim of bullying has received an invitation to attend Avengers: Infinity War premiere and this time, from Mark Ruffalo. Yesterday, Ruffalo used Twitter to invite Nyeeam Hudson to attend the next Avengers movie’s world premiere after the boy’s sensible take on bullying went viral courtesy an online video.
The reason why Hudson sounds matured beyond his age is that he is a well-trained and rehearsed motivational speaker and writer whose positive view on life has seen him appear as a guest on shows such as Steve Harvey’s Little Big Shots and Good Morning America. Hudson uses an alias King Nahh on YouTube, where the 11-year-old creates thought-provoking videos such as “If you have the power to make someone smile, do it!” and “True BEAUTY begins inside.”
The invitation from Ruffalo follows closely after Captain America star Chris Evans had extended an invitation to a Tennessee teenager Keaton Jones to attend the premiere of Avengers: Infinity War after Jones shared a video online narrating his bullying trauma. However, Evans invitation led to instant criticism when several allegations related to the Jones family came up. The allegations include accusations of racism against Jones’ parents and a suspicious campaign on GoFundMe which suddenly shut down after collecting more than $50,000.
Although Ruffalo mentioned his MCU co-star Don Cheadle in the original tweet, it turns out that Cheadle didn’t have much to do with that invitation. Ruffalo later came up with a clarification tweet stating, “This is still in committee with @DonCheadle. I dragged him on without conferring with him. Sorry. My bad. My invite with this young man stands.”
Avengers: Infinity War premieres on May 4, 2018.
