Actress Zoe Kazan delivers a lesson in Twitter etiquette to a user who tagged her in a tweet criticizing her performance in “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs”.
The tweet came from Twitter user @SamBrod, who said that Kazan was “frustrating to watch” in “Buster Scruggs”, the latest feature film from Joel and Ethan Coen.
“Solid example of when not to tag an artist in your tweet about their work,” Kazan said in response. “Like I am not a restaurant, this is not yelp, I don’t need to know that you found the meal overly salty.”
“The Big Sick” star received support from her followers, and the Twitter user soon issued an apology.
“Dear all, I apologize for this tweet. I did not think Zoe (or anyone) would ever see this,” he said.
Kazan deleted her tweet following the apology, and concluded with, “Let’s try not to say things to each other online that wouldn’t be rude/antisocial to say to someone’s face? seems… basic.”
There were others, however, who felt like the apology was unnecessary.
“The Ballad of Buster Scruggs” is a western anthology comprising of six stories, one of which stars Kazan, who also co-wrote one of this year’s most acclaimed dramas, “Wildlife”, with her partner Paul Dano.
