KJ Apa, star of the hit TV show Sex Archie, has pissed off some people in Vancouver by calling the city "kind of boring."
"The thing is, when you're there for a really long time it can get kind of boring," Apa said.
Although Vancouver has long had a reputation for lacking in excitement, even earning the nickname No Fun City, some people didn't take too kindly to Apa's comment.
Vancouver is NOT boring, people insisted.
There were some (probably well-deserved) digs at his acting.
And some people pointed out that New Zealand, where Apa is from, isn't exactly known for its thrills either.
But also...is he wrong?
Others called the reaction itself boring.
And of course the real estate market was invoked, because it is Vancouver after all.
For what it's worth, Apa has previously gushed about how "beautiful" Vancouver is.
Perhaps most importantly, the real Archie (from the comics) had a pretty good time when the gang visited Vancouver during Expo 86.
