Basically, Ryan Reynolds is the coolest.
Recently, a movie theatre in Utah called Brewvies was screening Deadpool to an audience, while also serving beer (with a liquor license), and in result, was summoned by the Utah State Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control for an administrative meeting. in which the theatre could possibly face $25,000 in fines.
Because while it’s allowed for theatres to serve alcohol during movies, there is a Utah state law that apparently states there cannot be alcohol served during screenings of movies which feature full nudity or sexual acts in the film. Which as anyone who has seen Deadpool will know… the movie certainly has a lot of.
Here’s what Reynolds had to say about the controversy recently on Twitter:
Thank god, they’ve found a way to legislate fun. https://t.co/vUSptxaHb9

That wasn’t all though, as the actor then went on to donate $5,000 to the theatre’s crowdfunding campaign, which is intended to raise money to offset the possible fines they’ll be facing, and also build a defense fund in order to defend their case.

Deadpool is set to be released on DVD and blu ray on May 10th.
