Frankie Muniz, the child star of the early noughties sitcom Malcolm in the Middle, is now trying to get in the middle of singer Lizzo’s wardrobe by wanting to be her purse.
Yeah, you read that correctly.
Muniz tweeted Lizzo earlier this week asking if he could be her “accessory”, or, more specifically, her “purse”.
“Hey Lizzo, lemme be your accessory. I can be a purse… put a chain around me and I’ll hold your stuff for you… just sayin,” Muiz tweeted.
Hey @lizzo, lemme be your accessory. I can be a purse… put a chain around me and I’ll hold your stuff for you… just sayin.

Twitter… had thoughts. Many were bemused by Muniz’s choice of words, yet many more related to his choice of wording.
There were a lot of Malcolm in the Middle gifs but also, a lot of people celebrating the frankness of Muniz’s comment.

“The horny content we need but don’t deserve,” one commented.
People had similar reactions to his purse comment: “Horny on main, bold move.”
