Babadook And Pennywise Are #RelationshipGoals

God bless them internets. When we need something gleefully absurd, they do always provide.

Last summer, the titular monster from Jennifer Kent’s critically lauded horror hit The Babadook became a gay icon thanks to one Netflix tagging error gone viral and fabulous. Now with Andy Muschietti’s adaptation of Stephen King’s IT breaking box office records and being overwhelming embraced by horror fans, it was perhaps inevitable that Pennywise and the Babadook would become Hollywood’s newest power couple. At least according to Twitter.

Full Disclosure: There are some bigoted fuckwads who are taking this fun meme and making it homophobic. They are in the minority. But there is one bigot who actually got really riled about the idea that Pennywise was gay. And the results are hilarious.

What did the wicked gays do to self-proclaimed Moderate Republican @JewsAreGreat? They danced at him.

When I was 17, I accidentally got caught up in a bloody gay pride parade and it took almost 15 minutes for me to get out of there. There were men in leather bondage gear leaping around me. I had a full blown anxiety attack!

First off, HOW does on accidentally get caught up in a Pride parade? I realize they’re probably not all as big as New York City’s where you can hear them from blocks away with the music and cheering. But how do you not notice YOU ARE WALKING INTO A PARADE!?

Anyhow. I recommend reading @Starkrhodey’s full thread on this exchange. And don’t take Twitter memes so damn seriously.
