Actor Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Chicago 7, Aquaman) took to social media recently to ironically respond to the criticism he received for his comment about acting in superhero movies being a “clown job.”

In a recent interview, the actor had referred to his work on James Wan’s superhero movie Aquaman as “clown work”. The comment generated a lot of controversy among fans.

Now, Abdul-Mateen II took to social media in a humorous post in which he writes that he is “tempted to clarify”, however he decidedly remains ambiguous on the matter.
