This Sharpay Theory Will Change Everything You Thought You Knew About "High School Musical"

SHARPAY DESERVED BETTER.

Posted on

In the High School Musical franchise, there's one fact we're all just supposed to accept: Troy Bolton and Gabriella Montez are the HEROES while Sharpay Evans is the VILLAIN. But what if we've been wrong the whole time???

A Twitter user named @SHARPAYSAVICTIM wrote a very passionate thread explaining why Sharpay is, in fact, the victim of HSM, and it's honestly making me question everything I know.

IT'S BEEN A LONG TIME COMING BUT IT'S FINALLY HERE,WHY SHARPAY EVANS WAS THE REAL VICTIM OF HIGH SCHOOL MUSIC:A THREAD

You should DEFINITELY read the entire brilliant thread in all its glory, but here is the *evidence* broken down point by point.

2. When Sharpay tells Gabriella and Troy to sign up to audition for "supporting roles," that is seen as a bitchy move — but they have NEVER been in a musical before, so that is just a reasonable place to start.

11. So the real message of the first movie is: "If you're popular and you do everything, you're gonna be great at it, but if you dedicate your entire life to something you'll be seen as a villain and now you're the bad person."

21. Troy and Gabriella convince everyone to be in this play even though they don't want to. And then Gabriella BAILS, which would be fine and all except she JUST broke up with Troy last movie for not hanging out with her.

BTW, this proves Sharpay was RIGHT to test their commitment to THEATER in the first movie by moving the callbacks.

23. But Sharpay delivers a FLAWLESS and GODLY performance — and then Troy and Gabriella finally show up to "save the day" after Sharpay did the work and they get all the glory even though they totally ghosted.
