“Stranger Things'” Joseph Quinn Broke Down When A Fan Thanked Him For His Time After He Was “Yelled At” By Staff

“However you were treated yesterday, we are so grateful — thank you.”

Back in May, Stranger Things made its much-anticipated return to our screens, after the COVID-19 pandemic seriously delayed production.

The fourth season of the hit Netflix show introduced us to a whole bunch of new characters, but none were as well received as Eddie Munson, played by British actor Joseph Quinn.

Nonconformist outsider Eddie captured viewers’ hearts as he took some of the Stranger Things’ kids under his wing when they joined high school.

The lovable metalhead was at the center of many key scenes from the season and resonated with fans of the show as he quickly became one of the most-liked characters in its history.

So it’s unsurprising that when Joseph signed up to appear at conventions this summer, he was in incredibly high demand for meet-and-greets.

In fact, it has been reported that Joseph was oversold by 400 tickets at London Film and Comic Con on Saturday, and staff at the event ended up “yelling at” the star for taking too long with the fans who’d paid to see him.

Meet-and-greet opportunities for Joseph ranged from £45 to £125, depending on the type of pass that attendees selected, and Joseph was seemingly keen to make sure that everybody got their money’s worth.

“Wanna know how bad the access was at LFCC for Joseph Quinn’s Upside Down photo shoot?” one patron tweeted. “With one of my other photoshoots, I was 43rd [in line]. with Joe’s? 428th.”

is it any wonder I was as ill as I was after, and received absolutely no help from staff? ✌️

Another fan called out the way staff treated Joseph, as they tagged the convention’s organizers, Showmasters, online. “I had such a good weekend at @Showmasters but I will say one thing,” they wrote. “If you guys continue to treat your guests the way you treated Joseph Quinn you are going to lose out on a lot of your regulars with that outrageous behavior from your staff. It’s disgusting how he was treated.”

“The way Joseph Quinn was treated at LFCC is fucking disgusting,” one more claimed. “Staff fully yelled at him to shut the fuck up and to just sign and not to interact with fans bc they over sold and couldn’t get all people seen.”

“I wouldn’t be surprised if Joseph Quinn never attended another con after LFCC… The entire experience today was a shambles! He did his best to make everyone feel they had a moment despite the staff not even stopping the queue to let him have some water,” someone else wrote.

“The way LFCC treated Joseph Quinn was horrendous, I feel so bad for him,” another added. “Both Joe and the fans were treated like shit all for LFCC to make as much money as possible. LFCC really need to treat the guests with respect. And the ‘staff’ constantly shouting at you, WTF.”

Among the chaos, fans consistently heaped praise on Joseph for remaining warm and friendly toward them, with one sharing her photo from the event and writing: “The organisation was a shambles and the staff were rude as hell. But Joseph Quinn was so genuine and friendly and gave me a hug even though the staff were yelling at him to hurry up.”

And artist Kimberley Burrows, who attended the convention on Sunday, took it upon herself to speak on behalf of everybody as she publicly thanked Joseph for his time during a Q&A. Fan Samantha Langer was also in the audience and filmed the exchange in an Instagram video that has since gone viral.

“Mine’s not really a question, it’s more of an extension of gratitude, really,” Kimberley stated after being selected to speak. “I’m sure a lot of us have heard what happened yesterday — whether it’s true or not — about how you were treated.”

“I won’t comment on it,” she continued. “But I just wanted to say thank you from all of us, we’re really grateful that you’re sharing your time.”

At this point, the crowd applauded, and Joseph looked visibly emotional as he seemingly choked back tears.

“Thank you for signing our things,” Kimberley went on. “For spending time with us and making our summer. I think that we’ve all really connected with Eddie, for one reason or another — whether we liked his music taste, or that he’s an outsider like you mentioned. I think all of us are part Eddie.”

“We’ve traveled far because we all really connect with you as well, and you’ve really made our weekend. You’ve really made mine as well, you were so nice to me and my guide dog yesterday,” Kimberley, who is blind, concluded. “However you were treated yesterday, we are so grateful — thank you.”

Joseph appeared to be completely taken aback by the heartfelt speech, and wiped both of his eyes as he started to cry while the crowd cheered and clapped.

He took a moment to regain his composure and then playfully asked Kimberley, “Aww, why’d you do that?” as he dabbed at his eyes again. Clearly at a loss for words, Joseph then said: “Thank you for your kind words, thank you.”

Someone who reposted the video confirmed in the comments: “She is talking about how Joe was yelled at by Con staff for taking too much time with fans, hugging them too long, etc because the con oversold him by over 400 tickets.”

And Joseph’s tears were enough to pull at the heartstrings of those who watched the clip, with another writing: “I’m so thankful for that girl saying this on behalf of everyone and him tearing up is making my heart somersault.”

One more said: “I feel like he really needed to hear that, and that makes me feel just so happy and sad.”

Another echoed: “NO STOP IM LITERALLY SOBBING RN the way he tried so hard to hold back his tears :(”

BuzzFeed News has contacted Showmasters for comment.

Although Joseph had many other acting credentials under his belt before he was cast in Stranger Things, the show catapulted him into superstardom almost overnight.

Despite this, he has kept a relatively low profile, and while he has an Instagram page he isn’t very active on social media.

But this still isn’t Joseph’s first time making headlines, and the actor was actually the catalyst behind Doja Cat’s very public attack on his costar Noah Schnapp last week.

On Wednesday, 17-year-old Noah shared a screenshot of a private conversation that he’d had with the singer to his TikTok page in an apparent contribution to the discourse about how popular Joseph’s character Eddie is.

In the screenshot, 26-year-old Doja had messaged Noah to ask whether Joseph is single after being unable to find his social media page to ask him directly. “Noah, can you tell Joseph to hmu [hit me up],” she wrote in the private Instagram message. “wait no. does he have a gf?”

Noah then told her to slide into Joseph’s DMs, to which Doja replied: “Idk his IG or Twitter, he doesn’t have a DM to slide to,” which is when Noah linked her to Joseph’s profile.

The actor, who plays Will Byers on the show, leaked the conversation in a now-deleted TikTok video, and the following day Doja put him on blast in an Instagram Live. She claimed that Noah’s actions were “degrading” and “exploitative” of her as she questioned his motives for sharing it.

“Maybe he is, like, a whole snake. But I didn’t see him that way,” Doja said at the time. “I made an assumption that he was gonna be chill about it, and he went and shared information that I didn’t feel comfortable with him sharing.”

Noah has not yet responded to Doja’s comments, and Joseph has not acknowledged any of the furore.

UPDATE

The creator of the video of this incident was Samantha Langer. An earlier version of this draft contained an embed from a user who was not the original creator.

Ashton Kutcher Speaks Out About Vasculitis Episode: ‘I Fully Recovered’

Published

on

A new update. Ashton Kutcher spoke out after his private battle with a rare autoimmune disorder was revealed via his Running Wild with Bear Grylls: The Challenge appearance.

“Before there are a bunch of rumors/ chatter/ whatever out there. Yes, I had a rare vasculitis episode 3yrs ago. (Autoimmune flair up),” Kutcher, 44, tweeted on Monday, August 8. “I had some impairments hear, vision, balance issues right after. I fully recovered. All good. Moving on. See you at the 2022 NY Marathon w/Thorn.”

Earlier on Monday, a sneak peek of the actor’s episode of the National Geographic show, in which he told Bear Grylls that he was “lucky to be alive,” made headlines.

“Like two years ago, I had this weird, super rare form of vasculitis, that, like, knocked out my vision, it knocked out my hearing, it knocked out, like, all my equilibrium,” the That ‘70s Show alum explained.

Vasculitis, which Mayo Clinic defines as “cause the walls of the blood vessels to thicken, which reduces the width of the passageway through the vessel,” can lead to organ and tissue damage.

“You don’t really appreciate it until it’s gone. Until you go, ‘I don’t know if I’m ever going to be able to see again, I don’t know if I’m ever going to be able to hear again, I don’t know if I’m ever going to be able to walk again,’” Kutcher continued in the clip. “The minute you start seeing your obstacles as things that are made for you, to give you what you need, then life starts to get fun, right You start surfing on top of your problems instead of living underneath them.”

Grylls replied, “What do they say in survival? Storms make you stronger. And I think he’s living proof of that.”

During the episode, Kutcher descended from a 300-foot cliff into the jungle in Costa Rica and completed a commando crawl rope challenge.

One of Kutcher’s next TV appearances will be alongside wife Mila Kunis on That ‘90s Show, a Netflix spinoff of the sitcom they met on.

“Mila and I were contemplating it,” he told Variety in July. “We thought, ‘Listen, we’re only in the position that we’re in because of that show, so let’s just go back and do this.’ We just went back and had fun for a week. It was so random and fun.”

Kutcher and Kunis, who portrayed Kelso and Jackie, respectively, on the original series, wed in 2015. They share daughter Wyatt, 7, and son Dimitri, 5.

Running Wild with Bear Grylls: The Challenge airs on National Geographic Mondays at 9 p.m. ET. Florence Pugh is set to appear in the upcoming episode.

Kanye Deleted His Instagram Post Mocking Pete Amid Reports That He’s Seeking “Trauma Therapy”

Kanye West Deleted Post Mocking Pete Davidson Amid “Trauma Therapy” Reports

Just when we thought Kim Kardashian and Kanye West might finally be seeing eye to eye, things just got a little more complicated.

As I’m sure you’ve already heard, Kim and her boyfriend, Pete Davidson, broke up last week after nine months of dating.

Soon after the news surfaced on Friday evening, fans turned their attention to Ye, who, throughout the duration of the highly publicized relationship, made it abundantly clear that he had hopes of rekindling his and Kim’s marriage.

On Monday, Ye eventually gave fans the reaction they’d been waiting for, taking to Instagram to mark the death of “Skete Davidson” — “Skete” being the name he began using in reference to Pete when he first started posting about the comedian on Instagram back in February.

Responding to the breakup, Ye shared a photoshopped image of a New York Times cover, emblazoned with the words: “SKETE DAVIDSON DEAD AT AGE 28.”

After being live on his account for about four hours, and amassing thousands of comments in that time, the post has since been deleted.

Ye’s statement prompted great concern among fans, marking the most recent in a string of online attacks aimed at Pete since the start of the year, with several making reference to his death or causing physical harm.

If you need a refresher, Ye’s public harassment of Pete began in January, when he dropped a new song, “Eazy,” in which he threatened to “beat [his] ass.”

This was followed by a slew of Instagram posts in the following months, whereby Ye called Pete “trash,” a “dickhead,” and even shared their text messages declaring that the Saturday Night Live star would “never” meet his and Kim’s kids.

He posted a screenshot of Kim’s text with a caption that many interpreted to be a threat of violence. “UPON MY WIFE’S REQUEST PLEASE NOBODY DO ANYTHING PHYSICAL TO SKETE I AM GOING TO HANDLE THE SITUATION MYSELF,” the caption read.

Despite Kim’s pleas, things only wound up getting worse over the course of the following weeks after Kanye released a music video for “Eazy.”

The video — which dropped one day after Kim was declared legally single on Mar. 2 — depicted Ye kidnapping and decapitating a claymation version of Pete, ending with the message: “EVERYONE LIVED HAPPILY EVER AFTER EXCEPT SKETE.”

The disturbing footage marked the final straw for many fans, with some calling for Pete to take legal action against Ye.

It was later revealed in leaked text messages that Pete resorted to confronting Ye privately, slamming the rapper for his behavior and calling for him to “grow up.”

“I have your back even though you treat me like shit because I want everything to be smooth. But if you continue to press me like you have for the past 6 months I’m gonna stop being nice,” Pete wrote in the texts with Ye.

And now, following Ye’s latest hit, reports claim that Pete made the decision to seek therapy to help him cope with the online harassment from Kim’s ex and his legion of supporters.

On Monday, a source informed People that Pete has been in “trauma therapy” since the start of April, “in large part” due to Ye’s “threatening posts” throughout February and March.

“The attention and negativity coming from Kanye and his antics is a trigger for [Pete], and he’s had to seek out help,” the insider revealed, adding: “Moving forward he just wants to focus on his career.”

The source also claimed that Pete has no regrets in his decision to pursue a romance with Kim, going on to say that “she’s been nothing but supportive of him.”

With this in mind, other insiders have emerged to say that it was Kim who influenced Ye to delete the post, claiming that she is “not okay with this type of behavior and won’t tolerate her loved ones being treated like this.”

“She has asked numerous times for him to take down the post,” the insider shared with E! News on Monday. “She will always protect Pete.”

They went on to say that the breakup has been particularly difficult for Kim, and that Ye’s post only made matters more upsetting and “tested her mentally.”

Ye’s comment on Kim and Pete’s breakup came shortly after reports that he and Kim were finally coparenting with ease after months of tension between the exes.

On Aug. 4, a source close to the former couple told Us Weekly that they are “very civil with each other and right now, there are no issues.”

After being banned from Instagram for 24 hours in March, Ye took a “hiatus,” during which time he was rumored to have sought “behavioral” treatment.

Neither Kim or Pete have formally addressed their split or Ye’s reaction, but we’ll be sure to let you know as soon as they do.
