    I can't even get flowers for my birthday, but okay.

    So, remembering the birthday of someone you love is always important.

    But when John Tiffany won the Tony Award for Best Director for a Play for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, he topped any gift any of us will ever receive by having the ENTIRE AUDIENCE sing "Happy Birthday" to his boyfriend.

    Like, literally an audience filled with some of the BEST singers in the entire world sang for HIM.

    His boyfriend, David, looked absolutely mortified.

    Like, if you have anxiety in restaurants on your birthday, imagine being called out like this?!

    Still, some felt it was the height of romance:

    OK IF ANYONE HAD THE ENTIRE TONYS AUDITORIUM SING HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME I WOULD MARRY THEM ON THE SPOT #TonyAwards

    While others...did not feel that way:

    If anyone ever begs an auditorium of strangers to sing Happy birthday to me, I will burn everything down 🙃 #TonyAwards

    However you feel about it, I think we can all agree:

    THE #TONYAWARDS ARE THE MOST FUN MOST PURE AWARDS SHOW THIS IS JUST A FACT I'M SORRY I DON'T MAKE THE RULES

    Oh yeah, and happy birthday, David!
