We’re obsessed with the newfound Twitter friendship between Penn Badgley and Cardi B

If you already ploughed your way through season 4 of You within three days of it coming out, you’re not alone.

As a matter of fact, Cardi B did the exact same thing.

Obviously, Cardi’s a busy woman. She’s a multi-Grammy winner with a rake of number ones, and she’s also got a newborn and a toddler at home. But look, when there’s a show to binge, she steps up. Herself and You star Penn Badgley have been swooning over each other back and forth on Twitter, ever since a video resurfaced of Penn praising Cardi for her authenticity on social media.

When Cardi got wind of this, she was only buzzin’.

As you’d imagine, Penn Badgley was fairly surprised to see someone as iconic as Miss Bardi fan-girling over him.

Meanwhile, Love is no doubt quietly watching all of this unfold like:

The rest, as they say, is history. A bit like his character Joe, Penn obviously isn’t one to go into things half-heartedly. By way of proclaiming his adoration for Cardi, he’s made her his profile picture.

And sure hasn’t Cardi only gone and done the same?

I don’t know about you, but I think there’s something magical about seeing creepy Joe’s face with “DIAMOND P*SSHY” written underneath.

Naturally, Netflix have jumped on the bandwagon, and updated their Twitter bio accordingly.

Cardi seems to be into this idea, so basically if we don’t see her strutting her stuff in Paris next season with Joe in his trademark stalking cap following close behind her, we won’t be impressed.

So there you go. The friendship we never knew we needed, but are 100% here for.
