… or not, in the case of….Jared Padalecki who had this to say when Jensen tweeted about his Supernatural spin-off…
I saw his tweet and thought nothing of it. Yes, the last line was a little bit strong, but I don’t know what kind of friendship they have. Well…Turns out he really didn’t hear about it from JA first.
I wish I could say I had a better reaction but I literally started laughing when I saw the second tweet.
ETA: He even went after one of the writers involved in the spin-off (and wisely deleted it – credit goes to the person on Twitter who took a screenshot!)
Why is he like this?
Upon further inspection, I see I missed key signs in the first tweet. The lack of exclamation! The weird line breaks (why is he tweeting like this? Why can I picture him furiously smashing his enter key?!).
The ‘Sam Winchester had no involvement whatsoever‘ is clearly code for himself because it doesn’t make sense.
Surely, he meant (LOL) Sam Winchester isn’t involved in any way whatsoever?
Anyway, I’ll be fair to Jared. It does seem like a bit of a dick move on Jensen’s part to do this without at least a heads up? Although, I’ve been telling you all he’s a dick for years now so I’m not surprised.
On the flip side maybe Jared’s reaction is why he wasn’t told? He could have just wished Jensen well and then messaged him privately and we’d be none the wiser – until he inevitably had a fifty tweet rant about it.
At the very least, I’d feel more sympathy if he wasn’t constantly doing the most. Dramatic as he may be, he’s not necessarily in the wrong here.
Jensen, bro, what’s going on?
What was so bad that you couldn’t call Jared and be all like, “So, I’m creating a spin-off of the show we’ve been on together for the last fifteen years. I’m going to be narrating. You’re… well, you’re not in it at all actually, and uh…”
…I guess it would have been an awkward conversation to have.
Somebody update me on this mess because I doubt I’ll be keeping up. I only saw the original tweet Jensen posted by accident.
… and I literally finished work and somehow the blog has its highest daily hits since I started it ten years ago. I have no idea how or why, but uh… thanks? It’s nice to know the hours I wasted writing these posts weren’t for nothing thanks to Jared’s complete lack of filter on Twitter.
Apparently Jared did what he should have done in the first place and all is well again.
….I don’t even have the energy to mock all this brothers nonsense. Clearly, the friendship runs deeper on one side.
