Jon Hendren, who goes by the Twitter handle @fart appeared on HLN’s “The Daily Share” Wednesday where he was asked to defend Edward Snowden but he instead defended Edward Scissorhands.
Host Yasmin Vossoughian did not play along with Hendren and kept on asking legitimate questions about Snowden.
The first part of the interview, Hendren conducted as a legitimate guest, but as the interview progressed, he began describing Scissorhands instead of Snowden. Hendren defended Scissorhands hand’s “People didn’t get scared until he started sculpting shrubs into dinosaur shapes and whatnot.”
Hendren, who kept a straight face the entire interview insisted, “Casting him out is completely wrong. We’re treating him like an animal, somebody who should be quarantined and put away. Just because he was created on top of a mountain by Vincent Price, and incomplete, with scissors for hands and no heart…Edward Scissorhands is a complete hero to me.”
After his appearance on the show, Hendren took to Twitter:
in all sincerity i really did believe we were talking about Edward Scissorhands
