24 of the Funniest Tweets from the Week of January 1, 2024
The first week of 2024 has been eventful to say the least: People are bursting at the seams to take a peek at one particular little black book, Jeremy Allen White stripped down to his bare essentials, and just mere days into the New Year, we already have our first Hollywood breakup. In a profile by Variety, Benny Safdie confirmed that he and his brother Josh have seen their “natural progression” play out, and the duo has officially dissolved. The Uncut Gems directors were set to reunite with Adam Sandler for a project also starring Megan Thee Stallion, which has since been indefinitely put on the back burner.
As the penultimate episode of Benny’s Nathan Fielder and Emma Stone-led series The Curse fast approaches, he’s looking forward to exploring more of his creative “freedom” through his upcoming sports drama The Smashing Machine with A24 and Dwayne Johnson. Safdie has also spent some time in front of the camera recently with scene-stealing roles in Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret and Oppenheimer.
As film bros everywhere process such devastating news, the timeline has supplied the laughs to lift their spirits. This week’s funniest tweets included those about a moviegoing experience straight out of It’s Always Sunny, the feminine urge to shelter 100 shampoo bottles and an ineffective anti-smoking campaign.
