speciesrights.org – Minions Rise of Gru is not only a market success, it also creates the latest trends in social media. Some of the recent TikTok content shows young men in black suits and trousers flocking to the movie.
They showed up with friends dressed up nicely. It’s definitely not a popular choice for watching animated movies in theaters.
Instead of the usual crowd, it looks like you’ve just returned from a party, prom night, or other formal banquet.

This costume appears to be inspired by Gru, the protagonist of Minions: Rise of Gru. He is described as a “evil” character. In some previous films, the character of Gru is identical to the black clothes.
This trend certainly caught the attention of other visitors, who thought fans of this minion had the wrong costume.
Nevertheless, this “saltum” phenomenon has actually inspired many fans of the franchise. Now, there are many similar contents that we can find both on TikTok and Instagram.
This trend has apparently managed to catch the attention of Universal, the movie studio that produced Minions: The Rise of Gru. The company responded to this as a form of fan love for the cartoon character, which was released nearly a decade ago.
Banned in some cinemasThe trend of watching Minions: The Rise of Gru in this costume has managed to capture the attention of the public and Universal. But this is not the case with some film directors who find “slumber” audiences annoying.
In addition to the bizarre outfits, Gru’s fans are seen as engaging in disorderly behavior and damaging cinema property.
The Regal Wadebridge, a UK cinema, has a special rule that bans unaccompanied children in ‘costumes’ from entering the studio. “This is due to the issues we encountered in the past two days and the behavior of The Associated. Thank you,” was the reason.
While some other theaters openly refused to sell tickets to potential viewers who came in black suits. There were even visitors who had to be taken out by agents because they were caught moshing in the studio after packing the film.
