Just call her Ant-Lady!
It seems that Lupita Nyong’o is vying for the role of the fictional miracle by consuming ant-covered fruits.
“It’s the ants!” The 39-year-old actress said excitedly In an Instagram video on Thursday As he showed off a piece of mango sprinkled with dozens of black creepy crawlers.
“it’s really good!” he said after a big bite. “It’s not crunchy or anything.”
The “Black Panther” star let out a satisfied “Mmm” after gulping down the remainder of the insect-adorned food.
“You can call me Ant-Woman!! #Marvel #Ants #Foodie,” she cheekily captioned the clip, which shows her holding a champagne glass in her opposite hand.
In the background of her video – which was filmed in Los Angeles on the opening night of a three-day dinner series featuring food from world-renowned restaurant Noma in Copenhagen, Denmark – people could be heard discussing culinary delights.
“Yeah, I eat them a lot with crickets,” one man said before asking a woman outside the camera if ants “smoke.”
The woman replied that she was unsure about how the insects were prepared, but noted that they were meant to “add a citrus note” to the food.
Nevertheless, the post caused many of Nyong’o’s followers to lose their appetite.
“What are you doing, babe [sic]… what are you eating ants fohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh [sic]?!!” wrote Winston Duke, his “Us” co-star. “It’s bothering me… I’m angry… what would you say Auntie… my antennas are going crazy.. . .”
But a second follower commented, “No. I feel itchy now. ,
“intentionally???” A third critic wondered. “I certainly would have assumed the waiter dropped me and asked for a new one… Maybe I didn’t turn out enough – but you at least look great.”
In fact, Nyong’o wore a bubble gum pink one-shoulder pantsuit to the nines, which she accessorized with tiny hoop earrings.
While the Oscar winner’s unusual breakfast didn’t whet her fans’ appetite, it certainly was enjoyed for a good reason.
The star-studded gala event was in association with luxury car company Audi and Non-Profit Organization MADWhich “inspires and empowers the global hospitality industry to drive sustainable change and transform food systems for the future.”
