In a feud nobody saw coming, Deadpool star (and Twitter celebrity) Ryan Reynolds just clapped back at fellow actor Gerard Butler after the 300 star made several shady comments about Reynolds films during an interview earlier this month.
While promoting his new project, Copshop, Gerard was asked about Free Guy, the recent movie starring Reynolds alongside Killing Eve‘s Jodie Comer and Stranger Things‘ Joe Keery. Butler’s response was a bit of a surprise, and a slightly shady one at that.
“I actually don’t know what Free Guy is,” he told Uni Lad, before he was informed that it was Reynolds’ new project.”Oh sh** is it?” Gerard replied, adding, “I don’t watch Ryan Reynolds movies.”
Ouch. Late last night, Ryan finally took to Instagram to “clap back” at the slight, sharing a screengrab of the headline to get people’s attention before quickly diverting them to where they can donate to a charitable cause he and his wife Blake Lively are supporting:

He captioned the post, “Can you believe Gerard Butler doesn’t know what Free Guy is? Also, can you believe that the challenges to democracy have never been greater and that Blake and I will match your contributions to the @aclu_nationwide and @naacp_ldf? *Order of these questions optimized for the Internet, NOT importance.”
The post gained a lot of praise from fans who are in support of Ryan and Blake’s promise to match donations made to the American Civil Liberties Union and the NAACP Legal Defense Fund up to $1,000,000.
