Netflix Destroys Mansplainer After He Tries To Take Down Brie Larson

2 min


Twitter is where mansplainers come to die.

We saw this with the now-infamous Paul, who tried to school Twitter’s resident OBGYN Dr. Jen Gunter on the definition of ‘labia.’ We saw this with Chad, who attempted to argue about The Punisher with Gail Simone, a world-renowned female comic book author who literally wrote The Punisher.

Today, we see it with Joe, who really tried it when he criticized Brie Larson’s directorial debut, the Netflix movie Unicorn Store.

Larson also stars in the film, alongside Samuel L. Jackson, Joan Cusack and Hamish Linklater. The Netflix Film account describes her directorial debut as “an absolutely charming, heartfelt, exploration of the things that drive us and the creativity that adulthood often tries to extinguish.”

Joe wasn’t having any of it. He replied to the Netflix Film tweet by suggesting Larson is a one-trick-pony who hasn’t yet earned the right to direct, who is  “riding” the success of blockbuster hit Captain Marvel, and who needs to instead “takes notes from Jonah Hill.” LOL.

Twitter

“This looks like bleh,” wrote Joe. “Take notes from Jonah Hill, who was mentored by Martin Scorsese, who took years before he made his directorial debut out of respect for the artistry of film and the position of the director. This seems like she’s just riding Captain Marvel’s wave.”

Again, LOL.

Netflix clapped back with a comprehensive list of Larsen’s credits, which include 53 award nominations, two directing credits, and an Oscar.

Twitter shipped the interaction with much glee.

In conclusion, don’t ever come for Brie Larson.
