Yesterday, Taika Waititi took to Twitter to make a very important announcement: he's quitting filmmaking. Okay, so the Thor: Ragnarok director was just joking, but the tweet included a hilarious reasoning and fans (and celebrities) are loving it. According to Waititi, he wants to pursue a brand new career of sewing dolls. While some people find his creations to be super cute, others think they're a bit on the creepy side. Either way, the reactions to the director's tweet are priceless.
"I'm quitting film. It's the right thing to do when you can bring so much joy to the world with your sewing. Btw it's a rabbit and a snake and the frayed bits are on purpose. It's 'rustic'. And that's a tongue coming out of the snake's mouth not a tampon you smart arses," Waititi write in his post yesterday. You can check out the images of his creations in the post below:
