If you're a huge The Hunger Games fan, then you already know how painful it was to watch Rue get killed by Marvel back in 2012 and viewers are still feeling it years later.

During a rewatch on Freeform, one fan recognized Jack Quaid as Marvel in the film and tagged him in a post on Twitter writing, "Wait ... @JackQuaid92 killed Rue?!???"

To be fair, that was Jack's first official acting role so we can't honestly blame him for jumping on this role when he did. But now, Jack is officially apologizing for everything that happened on screen...sort of...

"Oh sh*t that's right. Sorry," he wrote on Twitter.

Jack even defended his character and brings up some good points in a follow up writing, "In all fairness, I met my demise VERY quickly afterwards. I was brainwashed by my luxurious District 1 upbringing. But yes incredibly sorry."

In a meeting with Covateur in 2019, Jack opened up about how he still gets comments over the film to this day, but that the hate wasn't as bad as he originally thought.

“When I got cast in the movie, the casting director said, 'Because you kill Rue, the most adorable character that everybody loves, people are going to be spitting on you in the streets.' That hasn’t happened, but what has happened is no matter what I post on Instagram, a photo of my girlfriend’s cat, whatever, someone will comment, 'You killed Rue,'" he said.

We can let it slide for now. At least until our next rewatch.
