The Internet is freaking out over this clip that shows an apparently awkward moment between Victoria Beckham and Samuel L. Jackson as they watched the men’s final at Wimbledon yesterday. But what makes it the most awkward thing you’ll see today, as Buzzfeed called it? Or one of the most uncomfortable scenes ever posted to Vine, as Gawker claimed? Are two supposed strangers who set next to each other at a sporting event required to talk? Is it because they’re both celebrities and therefore members of an exclusive club that makes them automatic friends. Or is it because Jackson appears to be gently scratching his crotch region when Posh Spice looks over and then looks away in apparent mortification? These were all important questions to be answered, until Jackson took to Twitter to settle the matter himself, like only he can:
Lotta Bullshit goin’ round, I had a ball sitting next to @victoriabeckham at Wimbledon yesterday! Truly Lovely!STFU!!
