'Candyman' Star Yahya Abdul-Mateen II Reading Thirst Tweets Has Us Hollering

"Finally watching the Watchmen and I do a kegel every time Yahya has come on screen."

Celebrity News

If you haven't heard by now, Yahya Abdul Mateen II is the 'it guy' in Hollywood. He currently stars in Nia DaCosta's adaptation of the cult thriller Candyman, and he hasn't slowed down since. His appeal? His unwavering charm, his statuesque gladiator silhouette, and unfamiliar name that commands the room. But he's much more than that.


He's actually an 'Emmy-winning' those things.

Additionally, he's an 'Emmy-winning' those things that has the ladies lining up at the door to shoot their inevitable shot (because when you're beautiful, you already know it's coming your way). The actor joined Buzzfeed for their 'Thirst Tweets' segment, a segment where celebrities read tweets hilariously lusty tweets about said celebrity, that are found on the internet. And listennnnn, the ladies did not disappoint.

The video opens with him introducing himself and saying:

"I'm a little bit afraid of what these are going to say because my timeline be off the hook. Let me see what y'all got."

The tweets started out simple and complimentary:

YouTube

"That's tame, that's very tame. I'll take it."

He then goes on to say that he loves his beard and he loves to cook! Ladies, he cooks! He loves to wear his grill too, which he proudly claims that ladies that love that will 'mess around and get snatched up.'

But then the ladies started asking what we all wanted to know:

YouTube

Well, we're on count 52, but I have all night to keep going. #kanyeshrug

"You should tweet me compliments more often. If you tweet me, I'll read them in the morning. I'll make a calendar of all your tweets, or just for every month, it'll be a different tweet, and I'll just read it. Keep my confidence high. I like that."

And slowly started getting to the point:

YouTube

After getting a good laugh, at the thought of women doing kegels on sight, he says:

'That's funny.'

I'm confused...you didn't know this was normal, sir? *stares in collective Black woman confusion*

The whole entire, and CLEAR, point:

"Alright, you better holler at me. I appreciate the respectfully, because respectfully is important. But getting your back broke like a glow stick is important too."

He ends the video reading a few more tweets and even shared a quickly story about the life affirmations his grandmother would speak into him.
