You star Penn Badgley has taken to Twitter to tell people they’re wrong for liking his murderous character.
The actor, who plays stalker and murderer Joe Goldberg in the hit Netflix show, can’t understand why people are so in love with the character.
Ever since the binge-worthy show popped up, people have been talking about how they still fancy Joe, even though they know they probably shouldn’t.
But now, the former Gossip Girl star has taken to Twitter to tell people once and for all exactly why they shouldn’t be fawning over Joe – and his responses are pretty hilarious.
One fan posted: "Said this already but @ PennBadgley is breaking my heart once again as Joe. What is it about him?"

Another commented: "Okay but @ PennBadgley was sexy as Dan but lord Joe is a whole new level"
The actor said: "…of problems, right?"
One fan even asked Penn: "@ PennBadgley kidnap me pls"
He comically replied: "No thx"
Some people took a very different view on Joe though.
One said: "the amount of people romanticizing @ PennBadgley’s character in YOU scares me"

And Penn replied: "Ditto. It will be all the motivation I need for season 2."
Another posted: "Ive never trusted anyone less than @ PennBadgley"
"My favorite feedback so far," he laughed.
Some viewers of the new series have claimed they were left so terrified they were unable to sleep after watching it.
It follows book store manager Joe, who falls in love with customer Guinevere Beck, played by Elizabeth Lail, the moment he meets her.

Some are onto him though
The horrifying series, which came onto Netflix on Boxing Day, explores the dangers of social media culture with an emphasis on a lack of digital privacy.
One scared viewer said: "Just started watching #YOU and 12 minutes into the pilot, I got so paranoid I had to secure all my profiles. S***, it’s so terrifying"
"If you’re into psychological thrillers I HIGHLY recommend binging the show “YOU” out now on @netflix . Intense, crazy, suspenseful, funny, romantic, creepy, gory, scary, and just phenomenal," added another.
