Stranger Things’ star, Finn Wolfhard, tweets out in celebration after Fleabag's creator and star, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, won two Emmy Awards in the 2019 awards.


However, Finn kinda skipped over It Chapter Two's co-star Bill Hader's Emmy award.

And this had fans laughing in tears.


First of all, on September 3, Finn made it known that he was a fan of Fleabag by simply tweeting out:



Before this, on August 31, Finn had posted an Instagram story showing him watching the series.

What is Fleabag?

Basically, Fleabag is a British comedy-drama series. It focuses on a lady who navigates through life in London while rejecting anyone who attempts to help her.


It was written and created by the talented Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who also starred as the woman named Fleabag in the series.


Anyway, fast forward to the 2019 Emmys, and it seems that an excited Finn was crossing his fingers, hoping for Phoebe to win an award.


And she did!


In fact, she won not one, but two Emmy Awards. That is, one for 'Best Leading Comedy Actress' and another for 'Best Writing For A Comedy Series'.


When it was announced, Finn quickly took to Twitter to say:



And then, an hour later, Finn tweeted out again:


“And also PHOEBE!!!!”


(This could have been when it was announced that Phoebe won her second Emmy)



So, what were Finn's fans' initial reactions to this?


At first, a lot of Finn's fans were confused about who he was referring to, and many demanded an answer, reply with: "Who's Phoebe?!?!"


Some fans thought he was referring to Phoebe from F.R.I.E.N.D.S (played by Lisa Kudrow), which then caused many comments to reply with GIFs of her.


Fun fact: It was also the 25th Anniversary since F.R.I.E.N.D.S first aired so this contributed to the confusion.


However, Finn's loyal fans knew immediately that he was tweeting about Phoebe Waller-Bridge from Fleabag.


Which then had fans laughing in tears when they realised that Finn didn’t mention It Chapter Two co-star, Bill Hader (Adult Richie Tozier), who had also won an Emmy that night for 'Lead Actor in a Comedy Series (for Barry) for the second consecutive year.


“finn wolfhard tweeting abt phoebe waller-bridge winning an emmy but not about bill hader winning an emmy is so f***ing funny.... finn stans fleabag harder than he stans his own co-star.”


Don't fret though, because a little later on, Finn did retweet an article from Deadline Hollywood that reported on Bill Hader winning an Emmy.
