OK, so first up, this is The Babadook. He's a physical manifestation of grief that lives in an Australian family's basement and sometimes terrorizes them with pop-up books just for the drama of it.

...people kind of rolled with it. So, yeah, he's gay now. He's doing great.

And if Pennywise is gay, is he dating The Babadook???

Pennywise and his boyfriend, The Babadook are off on a date to get crepes and terrorize some kids.

This Twitter user seemed REALLY pissed that Pennywise was gay for some reason. Sad.

Twitter user Starkrhodey told BuzzFeed News that he wasn't really expecting a troll to get that heated over gay Pennywise.

"I've posted a "Thanos is an LGBT ally' edit before and it didn't gain as much reactions as this one," they said. "So I thought 'hmm, what if I post a Pennywise is an LGBT ally edit too.' And I was thinking only my mutuals would enjoy it. Then of course, the moderaterepublican account came and immediately started spewing things."

  1. Should Pennywise date The Babadook?
