Tom Holland Responds to Tumblr Meme About His Red Carpet Facial Expression

Spider-Man: Homecoming star Tom Holland recently addressed a meme about him having a frog in his mouth. Yes, really.

Holland has been nothing but good natured in the face of trash talk from his Avengers co-stars Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan, and now it looks like he's proving to be just as cool when the teasing comes from fans.

Buzzfeed reports that fans on Tumblr have been commenting on a particular red carpet facial expression that Holland makes that looks like the star is hiding a frog in his mouth. Folks were quick to turn the observation into a meme, with one going so far as to name the frog Dave.

On Sunday, Holland addressed the frog theory on his Instagram.

This is hilarious. I can confirm that the rumours are true 😂😂😂 #spidermanhomecoming

"This is hilarious. I can confirm that the rumours are true," Holland captioned a screenshot of some of the Tumblr posts.


In addition to the frog theory, Holland has also dealt with other rumors with grace and humor. When Spider-Man: Homecoming co-star Zendaya took to Twitter to counter a report that the pair were dating and spending vacations together, Holland replied with, "Does the press tour count?"
