“Friends came by last night to initiate me into the cult of ‘RRR’ (Rise Roar Revolt) and I’m here to report that I’m now a fully, truly, deeply a member. It’s the craziest, most heartfelt, weirdest blockbuster I’ve ever seen. I’m pretty sure Jess and I are watching it again this week,” read her tweet, which had over 15,000 likes.
