Mark Ruffalo has extended an Avengers: Infinity War premiere invitation to another bullied boy. Ruffalo took to Twitter yesterday to invite Nyeeam Hudson to the world premiere of the next Avengers film after the boy’s level-headed take on bullying went viral via a video posted online.
This young man is my Hero too. The kids know in their hearts what is right. Both want to be accepted outside of their appearance. Me and @DonCheadle would like to invite this gentleman to the premiere of #InfinityWar as our guest. https://t.co/U0cgplnqas

If Hudson’s words sound eloquent beyond his years, that’s because he’s a practiced motivational speaker and author whose positive outlook on life has led to him guesting on shows like Steve Harvey’s Little Big Shots and Good Morning America. Hudson goes by the name King Nahh on YouTube, where the 11-year-old produces thoughtful videos with titles like “If you have the power to make someone smile, do it!” and “True BEAUTY begins inside.”
Ruffalo’s invitation comes just days after Chris Evans invited Tennessee teen Keaton Jones to the Avengers: Infinity War premiere after the boy posted a video online detailing his bullying. Evans’ invite resulted in immediate backlash when a quick succession of allegations regarding the Jones family surfaced. Those allegations include racism on the part of the Jones’ parents and a suspicious GoFundMe campaign that amassed over $50,000 before being shut down.
While Ruffalo’s tweet mentions fellow Marvel Cinematic Universe actor Don Cheadle, it seems that Cheadle is less involved in the invitation than initially implied. Ruffalo later followed up with a clarifying tweet stating, “This is still in committee with @DonCheadle. I dragged him on without conferring with him. Sorry. My bad. My invite with this young man stands.”
Avengers: Infinity War debuts on May 4, 2018.
