Wakanda is in the midst of an extremely turbulent era. Between the death of their previous king, a challenge to the throne during the next king's crowning ritual, and a covert ops mission gone wrong in east Asia, the crises facing the enigmatic country are cause for much concern in the international community. Or at least they would be if Wakanda was real, and not the fictional home of the Marvel superhero Black Panther, a fact many people didn't seem to be aware of when Jimmy Kimmel asked them about Wakanda.
None of these people knew what they were talking about... but that didn't stop them from talking.
Dangerously uninformed. Scary, yet entertaining 🤷🏾♀️— Educate to Liberate (@NefertariNkenge) February 24, 2018
Twitter was cringing with delight:
Lots of secondhand embarrassment happening over here. Lots.— 🇯🇲DiCoolieWan🇨🇺 (@PrtyLittleSyko) February 24, 2018
That's funny but sad how out of touch people really are about the world!😂😂😂— Felicia Qawiyy (@FeliciaQawiyy) February 25, 2018
Other people were skeptical...
It takes a special kind of person to shamelessly lie on TV:
Though Wakanda is fictional, we might have a real lying problem on our hands.
Didn’t finish watching it. I cringed so much I almost hurt myself.— Fay Lulu (@OwlishTic) February 24, 2018
