Lupita Nyong’o left her fans startled as she ate ants at a gala event held at world-renowned restaurant Noma in Los Angeles on Thursday evening.

The actress, 39, took to Instagram to share a clip of herself enjoying the bizarre snack, which was served at the opening night of a three-night dinner series in collaboration with nonprofit MAD and car company Audi.

Lupita proudly showed off the delicacy which appeared to be a type of stone fruit with the insect sprinkled on top.

The Black Panther actress did not hesitate to take a bite as she announced: ‘It’s ants.’
