Uh oh… Men on the internet are triggered again.
Is it because our country is going to start detaining children indefinitely‽
Because the Amazon is literally burning down forever‽
Oh, no. Nothing like that.
Don’t be silly.
It’s because *checks notes* a lady took a picture with Thor’s hammer, Mjölnir.
So as you may know if you’re a Marvel devotee, legend has it that Thor’s hammer Mjölnir can only be handled by people the magical hammer deems worthy of its power.

Lol “Not to be whatever,” haha, love Brie, so fun right‽
Because the menfolk got deep, deep in their feelings and honey they are ~*triggerrrrrred*~ Brie’s comments immediately filled up with outraged dudes.
So many of them that people began taking to Twitter to post screenshots like these and… wow, men, you GOTTA get a grip.

What’s perhaps most offensive about these is they’re just dumb. Like, this is as good as you’ve got, manbabies?
“Thor is stronger.”
Okay… nobody… argued… otherwise? But… thanks?
“It’s funny because she can’t.”
Oh okay, @atrociuos, sick burn!
Also your handle is misspelled.
I mean, who even are these dudes‽
Here’s a bunch who tried a different tack, by exhaustively explaining why Brie is factually incorrect.
Over a joke post on Instagram!!!
Brie Larson posting a picture of herself holding Mjolnir prop despite knowing she's gonna make some men pressed is a BIG bad bitch energy pic.twitter.com/u8dQXLH5QY

Imagine—just IMAGINE—being this bored and sensitive.
It boggles the mind. Why go through all this time and effort when you could far more easily just shut up‽
The upshot was that Natalie Portman joined in on trolling the triggered baby boys.
In case you missed it, Portman was the subject of similar male outrage when it was announced she’ll be playing Thor in the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder.
And soon the voices having a good laugh at the men’s expense and cheering on Brie all but drowned out the crying.
Brie Larson can make grown men cry by just posting a picture of herself holding Thor's hammer her power pic.twitter.com/8qVe8T94Hw

“brie larson took it to far” “shut up you’re not worthy” “captain marvel is powerful yes but she can’t lift mjolnir she isn’t selfless she is cocky” “just because brie said captain marvel can lift the hammer doesn’t mean she actually can” pic.twitter.com/eRyfaL6OyI

So there’s just no other way to slice it, the score is Brie Larson and Women of the Internet: Infitygajillion; Aggressively Dumb Crybaby Manboys:
Guess we can all look forward to a rematch when Brie stars in Captain Marvel 2.
