Teens In Suits Banned From Minions Movie At Movie Theaters Over New TikTok Trend

(FiveNation.com)- A recent social media fad sees teenagers in formal suits swarming to the newest Minions film screenings, leading several UK cinema theaters to restrict teenagers in suits due to unruly conduct.

The latest movie of the Despicable Me series, Minions: The Rise of Gru, attracts enormous crowds of adolescent lads who refer to themselves as the GentleMinions.

On social media, videos of teenagers in suits attending the movie in large numbers and cheering enthusiastically have gone viral.

However, some moviegoers riding the trending #gentleminions bandwagon have come under fire for being rowdy and throwing things during movies.

According to posts on social media and reports from the BBC and Britain’s Press Association, this has led many movie theaters in the UK to ban groups of youngsters in suits from entering their establishments.

Any unaccompanied kids wearing suits have been prohibited from seeing the movie at the Regal in Wadebridge, Cornwall.

The Regal said in a tweet: “We are not presently admitting unaccompanied youngsters wearing outfits for ‘Minions: The Rise Of Gru.'”

Social media users posted pictures of an Odeon movie theater with a notice reading, “Due to previous disruptions following the #gentleminions trend, any group of visitors in formal costume will be refused admittance for showings of Minions: The Rise of Gru.”

The one movie theater in Guernsey has stopped showing the movie altogether. Mallard Cinema manager Daniel Phillips-Smith told the BBC that the gangs had committed vandalism, hurled objects, used profanity, clashed with other moviegoers and mistreated employees.

Families have left before the movie even begins, and of course, the kids have been in tears. Phillips-Smith said that things had been incredibly heartbreaking. They’ve had families who won’t even go back to the screen after they’ve attempted to work it out.

Police have occasionally been summoned to boisterous screenings, and Guernsey Police confirmed to the BBC that they had received complaints of disturbances.
We see you, and we adore you, Universal Pictures said on Twitter in support of the craze.

With the release of “Despicable Me,” the Minions series began. In the most recent movie, Minions: The Rise of Gru, the repentant supervillain Gru and his army of little yellow minions, known as the Minions, are introduced.
