Trending Now

Stephen King, known for his gripping horror novels, recently stirred a significant uproar on social media platform X (formerly known as Twitter) with his unconventional Christmas message.

Far from spreading holiday cheer, King's blunt declaration has ignited a flurry of reactions, most of which are far from merry.

In a response to a post, King starkly stated, "I hate Christmas Movies," a message that prompted many to attack their keyboards and let the author know exactly what they thought of his comment.

This bold statement, coming from a figure celebrated for his contributions to literature, has led to a wave of shock and disapproval among social media users.

The reactions to King's statement varied, with many expressing their disappointment and disagreement in no uncertain terms.

One user retorted, "You are just old grumpy and hateful," highlighting a sentiment of personal disdain towards King's attitude. Another user, reflecting a more political angle, commented, "We know. You're miserable and you hate our country. You should just move."

Furthering the theme of shared dislike, another individual remarked,

"I hate your movies. I guess we have something in common."

Another user took a more accusatory tone, stating, "That’s no surprise — leftists are trying to cancel Christmas. Ones like Stephen King are miserable so they want everyone to be miserable."

Finally, a succinct response came in the form of, "Which surprises no one."
