We have bad news for any of you who were hoping to bring the LGBT icon of 2017, the Babadook, home to your parents for the holidays: Baba is off the market.
Who stole his heart? Oh, just Pennywise, the demonic clown who kills children in the massive new horror film, It.
Don’t act surprised that they are dating.
It only hit theaters this past weekend, but it didn’t take long for Twitter to claim Pennywise was a member of the LGBT community, and of course he would have to be paired up with the other gay horror icon from this year, the Babadook.
Read through below to see some of the best tweets stanning for Pennywise and the Babadook’s newfound love.
