John Boyega‘s mother compared him to David Beckham as she told him off for his secret chest tattoo.
The ‘Star Wars’ actor – whose real name is John Adedyo B. Adegboyega – admitted he faced a dressing down from his mum when she found out about his ink, and he revealed the fallout from the discovery in a series of Twitter posts.
Sharing a gif of a nervous Kermit The Frog, he wrote: ”Been hiding my chest tattoo from my mum. She just asked me call her.
”I’m shooooooookk!! Nah my mum said Adedyao. Call me. Nah why am I hearing that jumanji drumming ! (sic)”
The 28-year-old star went on to explain how his mother even compared him to the retired footballer because of the hidden design.
He added: ”Nah the talking to I just got….. she asked if I’m trying to be like DAVI BECKAM.
”David Beckham tatts are a no no for a Christian Nigerian mum with tribal marks bro. (sic)
And while he thought he’d got away with it, his sibling pointed out his father ”hasn’t said a word” yet.
He continued: ”I think I’m in the green but my sister said something important.
”Zeus himself….my dad…. hasn’t said a word. (sic)”
However, there was a big twist to come as John revealed one of his sisters had revealed they were planning to get a tattoo too.
He tweeted: ”Wait wait wait!!! Plot twist!!!! My mum called my sister to share intel and my sis grace said ‘I’m getting one too’ (sic)”
Alongside a gif from the opening credits of ‘Malcolm In The Middle’ – which showed the brothers sinking to the bottom of a pool – he said: ”Me and my sister right now it was nice knowing you all. Have a good night. I actually gotta handle this byeeee! (sic)”
