Controversy struck social media outlet Twitter dot com once again this week. Statements regarding beloved entertainment entities have set the site ablaze and users are weighing in with strong opinions.
Scrubs >>> The Office, let’s argue about it
— Lip Gallagher (@tonestradamus) September 5, 2018
Twitter user @tonestradamus set the site aflame with this opinion, accruing nearly 340 retweets and a heretofore unknown amount of impressions. Opinions in the reply section varied wildly, ranging from Micahel Scott “Nope. Don’t like that” gif to Stanley Hudson “Have you lost your damn mind cause I’ll help you find it” gif. Supporters of the claim were found to defy statements of “this ain’t it” with “this is it, king.” Despite Mr. tonestradamus maintaining a tone of level headed diplomacy throughout, more extreme groups went so far as to leave threats in the form of Michael Scott “I’ll kill you” gif.
Under the alias Lip Gallagher, tonestradamus backed the position that the character of Dr. Perry Cox (portrayed by John C. McGinley) was a stronger character than any of the individual characters featured in The Office. The series featured talent such as Steve Carell (The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, Minions), John Krasinski (Aloha), and Angela Kinsey (The Office). He also lauded Donald Faison’s portrayal of Christopher Turk and the overall emotional themes present in Scrubs. Said Twitter user Kris, “Man I still feel a type of way when Dr. Cox lost those patients due to bad organ transplants and walked out. One of the greatest shows with plenty of memorable episodes.”
This is not The Office‘s first time coming under fire from critics. In addition to Scrubs, fans of NBC’s Parks and Recreation have been known to call the show “dumb” and “not as good as the thing I like which is better you dummy.” Critics also point to a sharp decline in quality following Carell’s departure to star in hit films like Evan Almighty and Foxcatcher.
Carell and series creator BJ Novak have yet to weigh in on the allegations that Scrubs is >>> and could not be reached for comment at this time.
So, we gotta ask: Where do you stand?.
