Updated: Apr 3
The details surrounding the “Creed III” actor’s continue to come out, unraveling a web of information. Social media explosively reacts.
Jonathan Majors, who starred in “Creed III” and “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantaumania,”was arraigned for an alleged domestic dispute with a woman, allegedly his girlfriend.
According to the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, Majors was brought in on assault and harassment charges. The complaint against the actor alleges that he struck the woman with an open hand, which caused pain and a laceration behind her ear. It claims he put his hands around her throat, causing bruising and pain.
Majors’ attorney, Priya Chaudhry, spoke on the incident via a statement to CNN. According to Chaudhry, Majors denies assaulting the woman.
“Around 11 a.m. on March 25, 2023, Jonathan Majors called 911 out of concern for the woman’s mental health,” Chaudhry said. “The police arrived with the paramedics, as in standard procedure, and arrested Mr. Majors due to an NYPD protocol requiring arrest in certain circumstances.”
Chaudhry claims that hours after the incident, the woman sent text messages to Majors. In screenshots provided by Chaudhry, the woman allegedly wrote that she was assured Majors wouldn't be charged. She allegedly apologizes for the incident.
“I’m so sorry you’re in this position. Will make sure nothing happens about this,” the woman allegedly wrote. “I told them it was my fault for trying to grab your phone.”
The woman allegedly wrote how she was angry about Majors’ arrest and that any charges placed on him won’t have her blessing. The texts state that strangulation didn’t happen and the charge “should be removed immediately.”
“I also said to tell the judge to know that the origin of the call was to do with me collapsing and passing out and your worry as my partner due to [prior communication],” the texts read.
Social media users react to Majors' arrests as well as the release to the alleged text messages. Many people didn't feel the messages cleared Majors' name.
The alleged victim has not been named throughout the ordeal. The Manhattan District Attorney has an active investigation on the matter and they cannot make further comments.
