It’s OK, Bro. Glen Powell Has Given You Permission To Cry At ‘Top-Gun: Maverick’

It’s late May 2022. We find ourselves in the middle of a pandemic.

No…it’s not COVID-19.

There has been an outbreak of good bros, much like you or me, who are being made fun of by their loved ones. All for shedding tears during ‘Top Gun: Maverick’.

Some of these accounts coming from Twitter are harrowing, and we can thank some brave bro’s for sharing their stories:

Others are currently living in fear. Ashamed of their Bro-Tears:

These aren’t just isolated instances either. Witnesses have taken to Twitter as well to corroborate:

If you’ve either been the target of a loved-one’s jokes, or feel like you have to hide your BROmotions, don’t. Glen Powell, who plays Hangman in ‘Top Gun: Maverick’, took to Twitter to give you the strength to let it out:

Hangman himself has got your back, Bro.

So if you identify as Bro and you have been avoiding seeing ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ out of fear, I urge you to get past it.

Get to your nearest theater (IMAX preferably) and let yourself experience all the joy, laughter, tears, high-fives and fist-pumps. It’s the “feel-everything” movie of the year!
