Toddler gets caught rejecting aunt’s FaceTime calls while watching cartoons

Emerald Pellot

Look, when you’re in the zone, you’re in the zone. For kids, cartoon time is sacred and interrupters will kindly be dismissed.

A Twitter user who goes by pillsburyBoyRoy posted a video of his little cousin watching cartoons on YouTube. Suddenly, the show is interrupted by an incoming FaceTime call from the boy’s aunt.

“Hi, baby!” she says with a big smile. Before anyone can marvel at how tech-savvy this kid is, in a hilarious twist, he hangs up the call to get back to his cartoons.

The persistent aunt, naively thinking maybe the connection was bad, calls back three more times and each time, he accepts the call and then hangs up

The hilarious clip racked up 3 million views on Twitter. 

“My grandbaby will decline on you all, quick! Nothing comes between him and ‘Paw Patrol,'” one user tweeted

“Auntie needs to respect my man and give him the space he wants,” another person commented.

“You can’t be FaceTiming people without an appointment, babies included,” one person said

  • Shroud is coming back to Twitch

    It’s official: Livestreamer and clutch king Michael “Shroud” Grzesiak is returning to Twitch. In October 2019, Shroud left his 7 million followers on Twitch to stream exclusively for Mixer. He was part of the wave of Twitch streamers who left the platform and signed contracts with Facebook Gaming, Caffeine, YouTube and others. He spent some time as a free agent after the Microsoft-owned service Mixer was dissolved and merged with Facebook Gaming, but on August 11, the streamer announced that he is “coming home”. Fans have already begun camping out in Shroud’s channel, hyping each other up and sending the streamer donations and subscriptions before he’s even gone live. Fellow streamers such as Timothy “TimTheTatman” Bethar and Hammoudi “Yassuo” Abdalrhman have also warmly welcomed Shroud back onto the platform. Prior to leaving for Mixer, Shroud was one of the biggest personalities on Twitch. The former Counter-Strike: Global Offensive pro gained a massive following for his exceptional aim, threat awareness and cool under pressure. Shroud confirmed he’ll be streaming on Twitch again on August 12 at 2 p.m. EST / 11 a.m. PST

  • ‘Toxic positivity’ isn’t helping anyone

    “Toxic positivity” refers to the concept that blindly staying positive can mean rejecting anything that may trigger negative emotions. Excess of positivity, like excess of anything, can be dangerous — particularly in a time like right now, where we are constantly being told these are “unprecedented times” and how if we “all stick together” we can get through to the other side. Toxic positivity has gone into overdrive since the start of the pandemic.
