Last week, actress Jenna Ortega revealed that when she was younger, she “dissected small animals”, which caused an uproar online later.
The You the star confessed while talking about her friendship with Maddie Ziegler during “Auto-Complete Interview” for WireYouTube channel.
“I feel like Maddie and I are the same person in different fonts,” Ortega said. “She’s a freak and I’m a freak [that I] I did autopsies on small animals when I was younger. For example, little lizards I found dead in my yard.
“He’s a weirdo in the sense that he stands out with characters, movements or facial expressions,” Ortega continued. “We’re really weird together.”
Wire published the entire interview on November 17, and on Wednesday, Pop Crave shared the autopsy quote in a tweet which garnered over 40,000 likes and over 1,000 comments from shocked fans begging Ortega to “take [the statement] back.”
“Used to what?” @danni4pf asked.
“She thought she was freaky but now we’re worried she may have been a serial killer,” tweeted @SweetSasha_.
“Jenna the beasts… that’s a bit sketchy [not gonna lie]@vhslore said.
“Love her to pieces but that’s overkill take it back Jen,” wrote @odelucasou.
@willak8h added: “Looks like a red flag.”
Amidst all the criticism, some fans defended Ortega and argued that there was nothing strange about dissecting already dead animals.
“Isn’t this just an animal dissection? Like everyone else in biology class at school? Why do the quotes say this is the behavior of a serial killer?” @jihyeojin asked.
“Have I been doing this all along? She wasn’t torturing live animals, they were already dead. You guys need to relax,” @percsdelicious tweeted.
Some commentators have also stated that the childhood hobby was well suited for the woman tasked with portraying Wednesday Addams in Tim Burton’s new Netflix series, Wednesday.
“So they basically cast Wednesday Addams to play Wednesday Addams,” said @firesignbutch.
Wednesday by Tim Burton
Netflix released Burton Wednesday November 23. The show follows Wednesday Addams (Ortega) as she tries to solve a supernatural mystery that affected her family before she was born while trying to live her life as a teenager.
said series co-creator Miles Millar Newsweek that he and co-creator Alfred Gough had included several Easter eggs throughout the series for fans The Addams Family enjoy, including the famous The Addams Family snap.
“If you don’t know The Addams Familyit means nothing to you but if you are a fan The Addams Familycould use a little [Easter egg]. Hopefully this will put a smile on your face and make you think, ‘Ah, that’s interesting,’ said Millar.
In addition to Ortega, the series’ cast includes Academy Award-winning actress Catherine Zeta-Jones as Wednesday’s mother, Morticia Addams; Narcos star Luis Guzmán as Gomez Addams, Wednesday’s father; and Isaac Ordonez from A Wrinkle in Time as Pugsley Addams, Wednesday’s younger brother.
