Even superheroes get the blues. After signing on for a Marvel movie and getting absolutely shredded, Kumail Nanjiani expected eternal glory, much like Robert Downey Jr. or Chris Evans. Unfortunately, what he got was anything but. While appearing on Michael Rosenbaum’s podcast Inside of You, the Big Sick comedian shared just how much the 2021 critical bomb Eternals affected his mental health. Or as Nanjiani told his fellow actor, “The reviews were bad, and I was too aware of it. I was reading every review and checking too much.” This negative feedback, which Nanjiani still has trauma from, led to the actor seeing a therapist. So the next time you leave a scathing Letterboxd review, remember that superheroes have feelings, too.
Someone else who may need some therapy soon is presidential hopeful Nikki Haley. Just days after her much-criticized appearance on Saturday Night Live, the South Carolina Republican essentially ran uncontested in the Nevada primary — and still lost. The former ambassador’s clear line to victory was thwarted by voters coming out in droves and pledging their allegiance to Donald Trump by voting for “None of These Candidates” as the former president wasn’t on the ballot. If you think about it, President None of These Candidates does have a nice ring to it.
Then there’s everyone on Twitter who absolutely needs therapy, but hopefully will never get it; otherwise, the timeline will be severely lacking in humor. Today’s funniest tweets include those about a fan of Male Living Spaces, a blasphemous SpongeBob and Hooters’ tiniest devotee.
