Since You became the murder series du jour over on Netflix, the Internet has been awash with fan theories and opinion s- one of which has rustled a few feathers. 

Joe, the show's protagonist, played by Penn Badgely, is a murderous sociopathic stalker, but his behaviour has been romanticised by some viewers of the show. 

Penn has previously opposed the idolisation of Joe, tweeting 'He is a murderer' in response to fans thirsting after his character.

However, he had not intended for his combatative tweets to go viral. 

'I hadn’t thought about it, and when I did it I wasn’t thinking about it as a strategic move,' he told The New York Times of his tweets.

'I didn’t intend for it to go viral in this way; the whole point is for us to have an elevated conversation about the themes of this show.'

'What I ended up doing after a few of those tweets went viral was follow some of the users I quote-tweeted, and DMed them just to check in,' he said.

His DM-sliding led him to discover that he had misinterpreted at least one of the You-viewer's sentiments.  

'So I actually had a lengthy conversation over DMs with one woman, and she correctly pointed out that I had sort of misinterpreted what she said.'

'She was talking about why she was so charmed by me, the actor, rather than by the character of Joe.'


So, when going through break-ups, people often turn to their favourite songs for some wise words of encouragement.

But, what if we could here those words directly from our favourite artists' mouth?

Wouldn't that be a million times better?

Well, one lucky Twitter user knows the answer.

Rhianna fan, @WaladShami posted a conversation between him and the songstress, in which she offered some pretty sound break-up advice.

He asked, via direct message, "How did you get over your first heartbreak? I've been struggling."

To which Rihanna replied, “Just believe that the heartbreak was a gift in itself!”

“Cry if you have to, but it won't be forever! You will find love again, and it will be even more beautiful!”

She finished off her heartfelt reply by saying: “In the meantime enjoy all that YOU are!!!!”
