I hate brussel sprouts.Tonight I will be eating a bowl of brussel sprouts and enjoying it for the first time. https://t.co/ekVhs68CiU — Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) January 23, 2018 And now there's photo evidence. I love Brussels Sprouts. Mr @kumailn does not. Last year I said he and @emilyvgordon would be nominated for Original Screenplay at the 2018 Oscars and that if I was right he had to eat a bowl of sprouts. So last night we celebrated with that classic combo: champagne and sprouts. pic.twitter.com/7bHRaMa0tD — edgarwright (@edgarwright) January 25, 2018 Okay, into the breach...Image: @edgarwright You can do it, Kumail!Image: @edgarwright So close...Image: @edgarwright HE'S DONE IT, HE'S EATEN ALL THE SPROUTS!Image: @EDGARWRIGHT And here's some bonus photos of him struggling a little more with the task, me helping him out and his actual expression on completing the effort.

I’ve never been happier to lose a bet & eat a bowl of something I dislike. Thank you @edgarwright! https://t.co/52XYJZSKNh — Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) January 25, 2018 And, no, I do not love brussels sprouts now. I can confidently say this was my last bowl of brussels sprouts ever. cc: @edgarwright @emilyvgordon https://t.co/RnY2XWmAqg — Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) January 25, 2018 Then Wright took things yet further... But what if you win? What then? — edgarwright (@edgarwright) January 25, 2018 I have it. If you win, you have to eat an Oscar made of Sprouts. — edgarwright (@edgarwright) January 25, 2018 The line between friendship and trolling is so very fine.
