Ryan Reynolds is one funny man, and the actor keeps channelling his Deadpool qualities every now and then on Twitter. Recently, he wished his wife Blake Lively on the social media platform with a cheeky tweet on her 29th birthday.
"Just want to wish Billy Ray Cyrus the most special, magical birthday ever. I love you with all my heart. Also, Happy Birthday to my wife".
But, while these hilarious responses entertain and amuse fans and followers of the 39-year-old actor, they also come in handy when the actor has to shut down trolls who target him with sexually suggestive tweets.
Unlike other celebrities, who would probably block gross posts or not respond to them, Reynolds seems to have found a better way to handle them. He simply lets his superhero character take over as he slams them with funny one-liners.
The tweets directed at Reynolds range from being outright abusive to sexually harassing. So when a Twitter user came up with an odd request to "sign my d**k" for the Green Lantern actor, he went a step ahead with sarcasm. "Oops, I'm just helping my Nana take her diabetes medication right now," he cheekily wrote in response.
Sometimes, the posts get weird and so do Reynolds's response, but his unfailing sense of humour continues to shine in the counter-tweets. "How upset are you that Justin Bieber deactivated his Instagram account?" one user asked the expecting father on the micro-blogging site. Reynolds shot back saying, "Canada is considering leaving North America."
Considering the odd tweets that Reynolds is subjected to, a follower voiced the thought that is probably on everyone's mind. "What does your wife say about all these very explicit "fan requests" you get? They ask for f****d up shit" the user wrote. Craftily, the Just Friends actor pointed the finger towards his actress wife and blamed Lively for the posts.
"Pretty sure it's my wife writing most of those. Sounds like her," he responded.
