Jordan Peele sends funny tweet after being confused for Michigan hero
Jordan Peele sent a funny tweet on Sunday after he was confused by many online for Jordan Poole, the hero for the Michigan Wolverines.
Poole made a buzzer-beater on Saturday night to lift the Wolverines to victory over the Houston Cougars, sending the team to the Sweet 16. His name is pretty similar to Jordan Peele, which led the actor/writer/director/producer, to tweet this:
I wanna thank everyone for the congratulatory messages. When you practice your jump shot as much as I have, you just hope one day it’ll pay off.

Peele just won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for his movie, “Get Out,” and as you may have noticed, is a comedian. Poole hit one of the best shots of March Madness. It’s been a good month for the Jordan Peele/Poole crowd. And as far as name confusions go, we’ve seen much worse.
