Netflix’s show You has quickly captured the eyes of the fans. After all, it has all the necessary ingredients that are complex characters, the soap-opera level drama, and most of all the very hot Penn Badgley.
Joe Goldberg is hot despite the fact that he is a stalker, a serial killer, creeper, lurker and disturbing collector of used tampons and teeth. This obsession over him is partly due to the fact that he looks like Penn Badgley.
Joe Goldberg is not that bad a guy in some ways. Being someone’s complete obsession is not always perceived bad and has undeniable appeal to many women (me). But his growing fan following has urged him to request his fans on social media to stop romanticizing Joe as this is dangerous and problematic.
Fans are pouring all kinds of tweets in favour of the character:
It’s been a week since I finished the series You and thinking about it still gives me anxiety. All I did was freaking out about Joe getting caught. “Joe, she’s gonna see you.” Joe…JOE. #younetflix

Has anyone else watching "YOU" on Netflix found yourself cheering for the guy then remembering he's a psychopath? 😒 #YouNetflix

Are you supposed to like Joe and hate Beck in #YOU ? Asking for a friend.

To all these reactions, Penn Badgley made pretty clear to his fans that his character should not have sympathized with so much as at the end of the day, he is a psychopath.
Secondly, Penn says -Joe is hot, yeah, but hella problematic.
No amount of arguing will force him to change his mind!
Badgley also confirmed there will be a second season of You 😀
Ditto. It will be all the motivation I need for season 2. https://t.co/fy2hojauDG
