While movie ticket sales are at their lowest since the beginning of June, Monsieur Octopus, on the French comedy bill Budapest, decided to complain about it on Twitter. Great evil took him. Netizens did not appreciate his irony.

"I wanted to thank France and my close public for making the effort not to have gone to the cinema at all, it's very cool of you." With this tweet published on July 2 in the evening, Mr. Poulpe, videographer and comedian on YouTube, probably hoped to make Internet users aware of the bad state of cinema in France at the beginning of summer. And more particularly to point the finger at the fickle departure at the box office of the French comedy Budapest, directed by Xavier Gens, in which the 37-year-old actor shares the bill with Manu Payet and Jonathan Cohen.

It must be said that the Football World Cup, added at the beginning of the sales and the first days of summer, rarely make a good cocktail for the dark rooms. Anyway, the irony of the actor has NOT AT ALL liked the Internet users. Especially since Mr Octopus added to conclude: "In return I do not take back any of the recipes Pompettes. It's give-and-take… ". A phrase that many have seen as blackmail. The Recipes Pompettes, where Mr. Octopus interviews a celebrity while cooking and drinking hard liquor with her, is a very popular show on YouTube.

The twittos have made him understand their annoyance following this line of humor, certainly not very fine but that corresponds well to the comedic style of the actor. In response, Internet users have not done in the finesse either. They blame this "shitty movie" or the "moldy promotion" for being the cause of this flop, while others directly attack the actor, insulting "misogynist transphobic", "kid" or even "big shit".

To calm the game, Mr. Octopus tried to bring the debate back to the original subject of his tweets: the very low attendance of cinemas in June. A few hours after the publication of his first tweets, he wanted to explain his words … while criticizing Twitter and its users at the same time.

This was far from convincing the netizens who continued their avalanche of tweets killers in the same register as the previous ones.

Seeing no doubt that the debate would not advance anyway, the actor posted a message the next day to apologize for the heated debate that followed his publications. He offers ten places for his film, Budapest. A way to apologize while enjoying the self-generated bad buzz by the actor himself to promote his film.
