The writer of the original "Men In Black" movie responded to a viral tweet on Monday of a 5-year-old girl brought to tears after she thought her mother might be an alien.

The film series, that starred Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones, follows the work of the eponymous secret organization that protects Earth from extraterrestrial threats.

On Monday, Kira Brandon, also known as Kira J or @IamKiraJ shared a video of her daughter crying after seeing her passport thinking it was paperwork showing she was an alien. In the "Men In Black" series, aliens are able to visit Earth and the MIB organization polices this by asking them to carry paperwork.

In the video, Brandon asked her daughter about the passport: "What do you think that means?"

"Mommy's an alien," you can hear her daughter reply in between her cries.

After laughing at her daughter's reaction to the passport, she explained: "These are the places that Mommy has traveled to and this is a picture of Earth as I travel." This did not stop the 5-year-old from crying.

"My daughter found my passport today & she thought it was paperwork to show I'm an alien. Shoulda never let her watch MIB," the video was captioned with multiple other videos of her daughter being dramatic posted below in a thread.

Brandon did not specify which "Men In Black" film she was referring to, however, Ed Solomon who wrote the screenplay of the first movie responded to the tweet saying: "My Bad. I apologize."

The first movie was released in 1997 and was followed up with two sequels and a spinoff in 2019 starring Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth.
