WTAF: The Internet’s Decided Pennywise & The Babadook Are Horror’s Hottest Couple
Ever since clown horror It came out, it’s absolutely blitzed the box office and reignited our fear of clowns residing in neighbourhood drains.
We also discovered that we all found the film’s demon clown – played by beautiful Bill Skarsgard – oddly hot. As It fever continues to affect us all, it seems the internet has decided that ummm, Pennywise is dating the Babadook, and they’re definitely fucking. Sure, why not?
PENNYWISE IS GAY AND THE BABADOOK IS HIS BOYFRIEND

So why is this even a thing? If you cast your minds back to a few months ago, after the horror The Babadook was miscategorised on Netflix to come under the LGBT film section, the internet hilariously decided that the Babadook was their new queer icon.
The inevitable next step of course was for Baba to find himself a boyfriend, and luckily a handsome clown (that likes to kill children) has come along to steal his heart. Twitter has shipped the two horror villains hard, and the results are fucking gold.
Most of the internet is loving horror’s new power couple:

I want to see the alternative ending of IT where the kids lose their fear of Pennywise by shipping him with the Babadook.

Gay Babadook: Based off of a Netflix error, was used by LGBT people to
reclaim their status as "monsters"
Gay Pennywise: Please don't

I'm opposed to Babadook/Penny wise bc the Babadook is gay and Pennywise is a female spider demon projecting an illusion of a male clown

pennywise/babadook is problematic cuz? age gap? pennywise is a billion year-old alien? the babadook is only as old as that woman's trauma :/

I'm all for reclaiming monsters in LGBTQ circles but between Babadook and Pennywise, folks are baaad at choosing appropriate monsters.

More horror icons are now getting shipped into LGBT relationships, as Twitter shares the love.
If pennywise and the babadook are boyfriends then kayako from the grudge and samara from the ring are having a fall wedding in Provincetown
