This Thanksgiving week, a couple cast members of Stranger Things got into a heated argument over Twitter. Red hot, even. According to the Alternative Press, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer was at the center of their debate.
It all started when Gaten Matarazzo, who plays Dustin, claimed that Rudolph can't be the most famous reindeer of them all. The reasoning? He isn’t in Santa’s core eight reindeer. In the video below, he makes his case, throwing in that, “No one likes Rudolph, alright, he has a shiny nose. That’s all he’s got going for him.”
Fair point. But of course, this was just the beginning. Finn Wolfhard, better known as Mike in Stranger Things, then responded. He started by wishing his co-star well on "American Thanksgiving." Then, he fiercely came to Rudolph's defense, asking his friend the most important question of all: "Who do you think you are for trampling all over my favorite reindeer for Santy Claus?"
Before Finn was finished with his rebuttle, he accused his friend of being a Blitzen worshipper. Ouch. Naturally, Gaten wouldn't let that fly and he swiftly responded to his friend's response. Gloves off, glasses on.
Finally, Fin tells Gatan to "Check DMS," the modern day version of "let's take this outside."
I wonder if the reindeer war is still going on or if they've finally "squashed this" in the name of Christmas coming up.
