Taylor Sakellis

Jamie Lee Curtis is an angel. An actress. A legend. A short hair queen. A feminist icon. A lover of probiotic yogurt. And, a spicy clapback queen?! YASSSS!

Jamie Lee Curtis just gave the BEST response to a Twitter troll who had the audacity to come for her career and call her BROKE.

Hahahaha that's hilarious, tell us another joke, h8ter!

In case you need a reminder, Jamie Lee Curtis has been making movies forever.

Well, since the 70s so, basically yes, forever.

Some of her insanely popular films include Halloween, Blue Steel, A Fish Called Wanda, Freaky Friday and, my personal fav movie, Christmas with the Kranks.

In the spirit of quarantine, Jamie held a cute lil' Twitter viewing party of the 2018 Halloween film where she and fellow cast mates interacted with fans and discussed the movie!

Everything was going so cute and SO NICE UNTIL some rude podcaster decided to join.

This ~podcaster~ had the audacity to say Jamie didn't like horror movies (even tho she's known as the OG scream queen but okay??) and only agreed to film the most recent Halloween movie because of the film's #MeToo theme.

Yuck! I know, right?

How many problematic things can one person say in one tweet?!

And just to clarify, Jamie has said in the past that she isn't a huge fan of the horror genre but is SO GRATEFUL to its fans for all their love over the years.

"I scare very easily," she admitted in an interview last year.

"I know it might seem a stupid thing to say, because in many ways I’ve made my living from being scared. But in real life, I don’t like to be frightened," she explained.

"I find nothing charming about it and I’d hate to watch a horror movie.”

She continued: "I sleep like a baby at night and I like it that way. I sleep curled up in a ball like a very content child, and I want to continue doing so."

"The only thing that'd keep me awake would be something scary, and I don't want that. I've always been this way!"

"In our wedding vows, my husband and I promised we wouldn't give each other surprise parties – a surprise party would send me to hospital!"

She concluded that she is grateful to the fans of her horror flicks even if she doesn't love the genre for herself: "Even if I don't understand the thrill of a horror movie, I do understand that they have a legitimate audience who love them."

"They're passionate about them, and I love them for that!

So YEAH, Jamie Lee wasn't about to have some stranger drag her film and her CAREER, and called the troll a "grumpy goat" which is the only form of insult I will be accepting from here on out!

"I sold Activia yogurt for seven years. I wasn't broke," she clapped back.

WELL IF THAT AIN'T THE TRUE TEA!
