Internet Thinks “IT’s” Pennywise and The Babadook Would Make a Great Couple
Way back when in the halcyon days of a few months ago, the internet has collectively decided that The Babadook is a gay icon, a move almost seemingly universally embraced by the internet. But the poor soul! He needs a boyfriend! And it takes a special kind of man to understand the story of an infinite ancient creature who preys on children. The internet, after all holding hands and watching the spectacular adaptation of Stephen King’s “It” this weekend, has decided, why that very soul must be the 2017 version of Pennywise, the murderous child killing clown who stalks the streets of Derry, Maine torturing the loser’s club! And the internet— lo and behold — has run with it beautifully.
But like with all great strides of progress, for some the idea of a big manly straight icon like Pennywise the Dancing Child Murdering Clown being gay was too much for some. Check out this Twitter user who had someone lose their mind in their DM’s because of a picture of Pennywise and the words “Gay Rights” under it.
