I think it's safe to say that all of us have probably bought a Funko Pop or two (or ten) in the past few years.
And there are several big reasons why they have exploded in popularity over the last several years: They're cute, inexpensive, and come in a million different variations.
Earlier today, the Twitter account @AITA_reddit tweeted out this story from Reddit's r/AmItheAsshole page about a man who left his wife because she asked him to stop collecting Funko Pops:
To summarize the post, the redditor has been collecting Funko Pops since before he and his wife met, and he considers it his passion. But recently, he's spent about $500 a month on Pops:
The redditor spending that much money on them (every month) caused a huge fight between him and his wife. His wife then said he needed to choose between her or the Pops! And he has decided to choose his Funko Pops collection:
He ended it by saying, "Again I'm very passionate about them and I think it's ridiculous for someone to try and take them away from me..."
The story got Funko Pops trending on Twitter because, of course, people had lots to say about it.
Some people were just taken aback that he would choose the Funko Pops over his wife:
Others had serious questions about where he is storing all these Pops:
While some people were surprised to learn why Funko Pops was even trending on Twitter:
And finally, this person downloaded the Reddit app just to reply to the man:
Listen, I really, really like Funko Pops, but choosing them over your wife, like????!!!! To each their own, I guess.
