23 of the Funniest Tweets from the Week of January 8, 2024
This week was the week that kept on giving. We discovered that new key cards are getting activated at the White Lotus, witnessed an unexpected beef between a late-night host and an ayahuasca-shilling professional football player and learned that Regina Hall may finally receive her flowers thanks to a $100 million movie from Paul Thomas Anderson. In the middle of it all, one actress revealed her fear that audiences are growing sick of seeing her on the big screen.
After serving as the face of a billion-dollar blockbuster, Barbie’s Margot Robbie told Deadline that she’s taking a short break from acting. The actress, whose production company LuckyChap inspired the internet’s current obsession with Jacob Elordi’s bath water by producing Saltburn, told the outlet that overexposure led to the decision. While she’s been attached to the Ocean’s prequel, she said the project is very much “still in development,” so there’s no date set for Robbie to return to the screen.
Have no fear, though — the timeline has still been pumping out hilarious tweets. This week’s funniest ones include those about landlord-evading tactics that cost an arm and a leg, the Republican presidential candidate who has been pegged for the nomination and a practical case for back-door access.
