Mike Pence reminds me of Kantaben from "Kal Ho Na Ho"— Kal Penn (@kalpenn) April 5, 2017
The actor's tweet has been liked over 3,500 times and retweeted at least 1,700 times and is provoking hilarious reactions online.
Here's what the film's director has to say
A lot of people seem to agree with him
@kalpenn Amazing! Everytime I see him now 'Heeyyyyy Kantaben' will play in my head. Thanks Kal— K S (@__Kay__Ess__) April 6, 2017
Most people think his reference is strangely on point
@kalpenn That came out of left field but what a reference...absolute gold— Meet Parikh (@meet269) April 6, 2017
@kalpenn Shade on point.— Geetika Kalloo (@GeetikaKalloo) April 6, 2017
Plenty more wish everyone understood Penn's reference
@kalpenn I truely feel sad for the folks who won't understand this reference, just awesome— Wahab Ali (@CrazySecurity) April 5, 2017
@kalpenn I couldn't stop laughing after reading tweet but it would be bouncer for most of Americans.— dipil (@dipilpatel) April 6, 2017
There are lots of people left understandably confused
@kalpenn I'm sure a billion people get this reference... I do not.— Hans D. Herman (@zebrahdh) April 5, 2017
@kalpenn not even going to pretend I know the character reference, but I imagine he's a pretty convincing super-villain— Fuegostein (@AaronFuegostein) April 5, 2017
@kalpenn I don't even know what that is, but it rolls off the tongue nicely— Mom-wench (@donna_neidert) April 5, 2017
@kalpenn I don't know what that is, but if it resembles a comic book villain, yes.— Carla (@twirlgrrrl) April 5, 2017
This person has the perfect solution for them though
Mr Pence has controversially stated he believes being gay is a "choice" and has previously supported "conversion therapy," a procedure that has been called out by scientists as having no basis in medical fact.
@kalpenn I think you just offended Kantaben !!— Ramesh Menon (@insanepundit) April 7, 2017
