Blake Lively‘s husband, Ryan Reynolds, possesses the uncanny ability to pivot from wholesome to R-rated at any given moment. Proof of the actor’s ability to turn on a dime was evident in a recent tweet from the Deadpool actor which has now gone viral as Reynolds’ tweets are wont to do.
The tweet contained a not so kid-friendly joke about his Sesame Street appearance from 2010 that fans recently unearthed. In the skit, the actor can be seen wearing a costume shaped like the letter “A” as he is surrounded by the cute, furry puppets we all know and love.
Ryan Reynolds cracked a raunchy joke about his Sesame Street appearance and the internet lost
A person on Twitter managed to stumble across the vintage Ryan Reynolds Sesame Street appearance. “Watching a little [Sesame Street] with the kiddo, and it’s an episode with [Ryan Reynolds] and the gang doing an A-Team gag,” one fan tweeted. “It’s a delight, for both me and the kiddo.”
Reynolds saw the wholesome compliment about his time playing a letter with the muppets, but his response was far from Rated G and instead would probably be considered a hard R.
Ryan Reynolds fired back with a joke that is only politely accepted in a bathroom.
I remember how challenging it was to sing because the A-hole was so tight. But I pushed through because kids all over the country were counting on me. https://t.co/EiXEUjomxE— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) January 25, 2021
