When a meme featuring Lady Gaga and Beyonce from their Telephone music video came up, the actor freaked out. The meme included Karen and Regina’s conversation from the original movie, which said, “I can’t go out *cough* *cough* I’m sick,” followed by Regina’s response, “BOO YOU WH*RE!”

The Dalíland star was neither aware of the song nor the dialogues mentioned in the meme and asked his co-star Reneé Rapp if the context of the meme had something to do with the music video. “I don’t know,” he said when asked if he recognized the people in the meme.

As Rapp explained to him that the meme features Lady Gaga and Beyonce from their famous song, he freaked out, saying, “I’m like sweating! Am I canceled? Is this it for me?” The actor seemed panicked as earlier in the interview, he also failed to recognize one of the members of the pop boy One Direction. Rapp, however, assured him that no such thing would happen.
