'Stranger Things' star Joseph Quinn cries at fan's heartfelt words after being 'yelled at'

Joseph teared up during the emotional speech.

After years of anticipation, 'Stranger Things' made its looong-awaited return, and with it, came our new favourite character Eddie Munson, played by Joseph Quinn.

It was no surprise that when fans of the show discovered Joseph would be appearing at London Film and Comic-Con, that he'd be in hot demand for meet-and-greets. 

So much so, the event accidentally sold 400 more tickets than planned, but that didn't stop the actor from making sure everyone got their money's worth.

That, my friends, is KING behaviour!

What we were shocked to hear was that the event staff were "yelling at" the star for taking too long with the people who had paid to see him, after they were the ones who had effed up.

In a video that has since gone viral, a fan who attended the star's Q&A took it upon themselves to speak on behalf of everyone by publicly thanking Joseph for his time.

“Mine’s not really a question, it’s more of an extension of gratitude,” the fan started.

“I’m sure a lot of us have heard what happened yesterday, whether it’s true or not, about how you were treated.”

She continued: “I think that we’ve all really connected with Eddie, for one reason or another, whether we liked his music taste, or that he’s an outsider like you mentioned. I think all of us are part, Eddie.”

Joseph looked to be absolutely blown away by the heartfelt message and began to cry as the audience cheered and clapped in support.

He paused to collect himself before addressing the fan, "Aww, why'd you do that? Thank you for your kind words, thank you."

With a large following of support fans were quick to call out the way staff treated Joseph, tagging the convention's organiser, Showmasters, in their responses to the event on Twitter.

Another said they "wouldn't be surprised if Joseph never atteneded another con" after the way he was treated.

"The way Joseph Quinn was treated a LFCC is f*king disgusting," wrote a third.

This isn't Joseph's first time in the spotlight. The actor was also unknowingly the focus behind Doja Cat's public blast of his 'Stranger Things' co-star, Noah Schnapp, after sharing private messages online.

Keep your head up, king! We appreciate Eddie, but more importantly, we loooove Joseph for prioritising his fans!
