It really started off as a wonderful trend on TikTok. As we reported over the weekend, groups of teens, sometimes as many as 40 would dress up in their Sunday best to go watch ‘Minions: Rise Of Gru’ in what was known as the #Gentleminions trend. At first I thought it was just another silly trend that would quickly die out until I found more about the trend. The young men dressed in suits were kids when the first Minions movie came out and for some, it may have been their favorite childhood movie. So they weren’t doing anything to mock the movie, they were generally excited to go relive one of their favorite moments of childhood by seeing a sequel to what has been an amazing series of movies. So why not get dressed up, I totally get it. Until of course, some fringe idiots are ruin the #Gentleminions trend. Much of this was discovered on a Reddit post.
