Euphoria star Lukas Gage put a director on blast for making fun of his “tiny” apartment during a Zoom audition.
The 25-year-old went viral this weekend after sharing a video of him calling out a “s—t talking director” who mocked the size of his living space — and all during a Zoom meeting, no less.
Gage shared the video on Twitter along with the necessary “PSA”: “If you’re a s—t talking director, make sure to mute ur s—t on Zoom mtgsings.”
In the 29-second clip, the unknown director — who Gage’s followers are sleuthing to expose — could be heard saying, “These poor people live in these tiny apartments, like, I’m looking at his background and he’s got his TV”
Unbeknownst to the director, Gage heard everything, and his reaction was priceless. “Yeah, it’s a sh—y apartment. Give me this job so I can get a better one,” Gage interrupted a smile, much to the embarrassment of the man in question.
Admittedly “mortified” by the call-out, the director profusely apologized for his rude remarks. “Listen, I’m living in a four-by-four box, it’s fine,” a fully composed Gage joked in response. “Just give me the job and we’ll be fine.”
The rising star’s video caught the attention of hundreds of thousands of followers, including several celebrities who showed their support.
“Thank for you for posting this. We are all with you!” tweeted Glee alum Jenna Ushkowitz. “You’re a class act and from the way you responded to this must be a joy to work with. Your apt looks pretty great to me and honestly, f that dude, he doesn’t deserve to work with someone like you.”
“Handled like a champ,” Joe Jonas commented on Instagram with a thumbs-up emoji, as his wife Sophie Turner sympathized, “That’s f—ked up.”
