If you’ve logged onto Twitter recently, you’ve probably seen a series of bizarre tweets from Danny DeVito. The iconic New Jersey actor tweeted things ranging from obscene (“I’d rather fist my dog than be in a relationship. Piss my pants!”), to heartfelt (“I love a good mother daughter relationship”), to obscure (“Get ready for some Hot Sauce”) this week.
Nope. As eagle-eyed Twitter user @Jbandos noticed, the 77-year-old actor probably just isn’t used to how Twitter works.
As it turns out, DeVito was live-tweeting the premiere of his new show “Little Demon,” which stars himself, Aubrey Plaza, and his real-life daughter Lucy DeVito. His tweets make a lot more sense as repetitions of and reactions to lines from an animated show about Satan reconnecting with his half-human daughter than as a loose series of unconnected tweets. But, since DeVito didn’t use a hashtag or thread his tweets or…you know, tell anyone that’s what he was doing, we instead got this delightfully unhinged set of rambles.
