This story contains SPOILERS about the new “Scream” film. Like any great “Scream” movie, the fifth film in the franchise is movie-literate and wildly self-aware.

The new film has fun with toxic fandom and the idea of a “requel,” or a movie that remakes the original film while pairing new characters with legacy, fan favorites — just like this film does and proudly wears on its sleeve.

But it also makes a sly reference to a real-life director whose own movie has become the poster child for attacks from toxic fans and the trend of requels: Rian Johnson, or as “Scream” refers to him, “The ‘Knives Out’ Guy.” James Vanderbilt, one of the film’s co-writers along with Guy Busick and a producer on the film for his Project X Entertainment banner, explained to TheWrap why name-dropping Johnson in one of the film’s key scenes was “kind of too perfect.” Fans of the “Scream” sequels know that there are a series of fake movies within the movies called the “Stab” franchise.

Angry delivery driver leaves note and £1.16 in change on customer's car after £5 tip
Reddit user has claimed their food delivery driver left an angry note on their car after bringing over a takeaway.Posting on social media, the anonymous person – who operates under the username phantaxtic – uploaded a photograph of the note which had been stuffed inside a Ziplock bag that they claimed was left by the person who dropped off their food.Alongside the message was a total of $1.98 (£1.16) in loose change.Usually, most of us will tell delivery drivers to keep the change when paying as a thank you for their work.So, you might be thinking the customer cheaped out and didn’t bother to give the driver a spare quid or two, but, the poster explained that they had in fact tipped the driver a respectable $10 (£5.85)..The poster captioned the snap: “Food delivery driver left a note on our car in a bag with $1.95 and a passive aggressive message.“We tipped him $10, the restaurant is a 10 minute drive away.”The note read: “Here’s some spare change you clearly need it more than I do.“Keep it for your next delivery driver’s tip. Stay safe.”The photo quickly went viral with over 6,000 people liking the post – and over 1,000 people commented on it.One commenter said: “After a few bad experiences with the various delivery services, I’ll starve in my house rather than deal with it.”And another replied: “Really expensive, slow, and at the end, your food arrives ice cold, what a service!”A third added: “‘Stay safe’ – don’t know if it’s a warning or advice!”“That's not passive aggressive.
