You're probably wondering how we got to this point. Back in December, a post on Tumblr showed the film The Babadook on Netflix in the LGBT Movies section.
Whether the image was photoshopped or Netflix accidentally put the film in the LGBT Movies section, people didn't seem to care, and that's when the legend of the Babadook being an unlikely gay icon was born. In a piece for Mic.com, Michael Varrati provides a thorough breakdown, detailing why the Babadook could be perceived as gay.
But how did Pennywise get shipped with he Babadook? Let's just chalk it up to The Internet gon' Internet. People wanted to believe that Pennywise and the Babadook were an item, and here we are. But it's not hard to believe considering they share a common interest in scaring the hell out of kids.
So, watch out everyone: the next big Hollywood power couple may very well be Pennywise and the Babadook.
