Joey King is opening up about that viral tweet she posted last week in response to her The Kissing Booth co-star and ex-boyfriend Jacob Elordi saying he didn’t watch the sequel.
The 21-year-old actress made a virtual appearance on SiriusXM’s The Howard Stern Show on Tuesday morning (August 11) and opened up about the film.
Howard is actually a massive fan of The Kissing Booth film franchise and says that Joey is his favorite actress!
After Jacob claimed he hasn’t seen The Kissing Booth 2, Joey tweeted, “Jacob watched it. He’s capping.” The tweet was deleted shortly after and she’s explaining why.
“I said, ‘Jacob watched it. He’s capping.’ Which, ‘capping’ means lying. I head the term ‘capping’ on like Tik Tok and Twitter and Instagram, through friends, and I was like ‘I guess this is the new thing.’ Apparently its not. It’s something I should not have used as a white person. I took it down… two accounts on Twitter called me out for it, that’s why I deleted it. People thought it was because I was like ‘oh no I shouldn’t have said that about him’ so I deleted it because of that,” Joey said.
She continued, “The tweet was a jovial thing. It wasn’t to be mean—it really wasn’t. I know the The Kissing Booth fans they are always so curious about that tension of sorts and so I was like I’m just going to, I know they will appreciate it and that’s who it was for.”
“I did get his permission to tweet it so that was fine,” Joey added. “He had a good sense of humor about that tweet, for sure.”
Jacob recently opened up about what bothered him about the first Kissing Booth movie.
FYI: Joey is wearing a SAVÀ skirt, a Princess Polly top, Jennifer Zeuner earrings and colored rings, a Versace chain necklace and Stella Bow’s I Am A Voter pendant necklace.
