Ready for some drama that will temporarily distract you from the unending horror show going on in the world? Well, you're in luck, because we've got some! And it's so good, even if it does involve a bunch of teenagers who we've barely heard of.
If you're under the age of 30, you've probably heard of YouTube sensation James Charles.
He gained a cult following for his insane makeup tutorials, and, in October of 2016, became the first male spokesmodel for CoverGirl at age 16.
Oh, and his YouTube channel has 1.8 million followers. No big deal.
So when he tweeted two since-deleted tweets about hating the new IT movie, the internet had a lot of feelings about it. Here’s what the original tweets said:
“Okay five minutes in and IT is already awful. Stay tuned for updates.”
“This movie is so predictable I’ve been texting @beechloren02 what I think is gonna happen next & I’ve been right every single time so far.”
While a lot of people had mixed responses, one comment came from a user with a surprisingly familiar face.
Finn Wolfhard, who played Richie in the movie, added this (very astute) point in response.
And people went insane.
Tons of users posted clapping emojis and expressed their frustration at people who ruin other moviegoers’ experiences by being on their bright phones the whole time.
At first, Charles tried to play it cool.
He mentioned being “dragged” by the famous actor, which is apparently a young-person term for being “dissed” or “called-out,” as we used to say back in the day.
(Is it not cool to say “dissed” anymore?)
Charles also tried to give the movie a compliment, while sticking with his original opinion of it.
This tweet came in response to another Twitter user asking: “Okay but I don’t understand how you didn’t enjoy it? Maybe it didn’t scare you but didn’t you at least laugh your ass off? It was so funny.”
More users called him out on his somewhat harsh use of the term “awful” in his original tweet.
Who knew IT would be such a touchy topic for the Internet?
Then, in response to what Charles described as "all the drama" his comments caused, he posted this selfie video in the backseat of an Uber.
It starts out with an apology to Wolfhard and everyone involved in the making of IT and takes back his initial use of the word “awful” to describe the film.
He then goes on to express his disappointment with it not being “scary” enough, as he was expecting more “jump scares” and less plot development.
