Actor From Netflix’s ‘You’ Calls Out Fans For Romanticising His Character


Netflix’s new show, You, has got quite a lot of attention recently. The main character, Joe Goldberg (played by Penn Badgley), is not only a stalker but also a murderer.

You’d think that fans wouldn’t warm to someone as awful as this, but it turns out that people have very much been romanticising his character.

Penn Badgley seems to have had enough of fans making him out to be the ideal man, and has been replying to Tweets with an air of criticism.
