HOUSTON – One Texas mother is trying to laugh off her decision to let her 5-year-old watch “Men In Black” because now the youngster thinks her mom is an alien.
Shaakira Brandon posted a TikTok, which was then shared to Twitter where it has more than 2.6 million views, of her daughter Nala-Joye in tears after finding Brandon’s passport.
My daughter found my passport today & she thought it was paperwork to show I’m an alien 👽😂. Shoulda never let her watch MIB pic.twitter.com/blvBAHX2Zn— Kira J (@IamKiraJ) September 20, 2021
In the 1997 cult classic, aliens are required to carry paperwork that looks similar to a passport - hence Nala-Joye’s confusion.
Brandon asks her daughter what she thinks the passport means as Nala-Joye holds it up and sobs “you’re an alien.”
She then goes on to explain that the passport just shows “places that mommy has traveled to, and this is just a picture of the Earth as I travel.”
“Shoulda never let her watch MIB,” Brandon quipped in her social media post.
