Doctor Who's John Barrowman Slammed for Demanding Refund After Seeing 'Old' in Theaters

John Barrowman, best known for playing Captain Jack Harkness in Doctor Who and the spin-off series Torchwood, is facing lots of backlash after he revealed his thoughts on M. Night Shyamalan‘s new movie Old.

The 54-year-old Scottish actor took to his Twitter account and tagged the director in a tweet, in which he called the film “a waste of money and an utter Shite movie.”

“We get the metaphors but we still got a refund! We were so disappointed. Don’t waste your time or money going to see it,” John added. He also included a video in which he confirmed that he demanded a refund from the movie theater because he didn’t like the film.

John said in the video, “I got the money back because they said ‘Usually within the first 30 minutes we give the money back.’ The movie didn’t do anything for two frickin’ hours. It was s***e.”

The tweet with the video has since been deleted.
