Do you ever wonder what life is like for a celebrity in the age of selfies? It can’t be easy. You probably have less people asking for your autograph, but now you have even more people with cameras, and they all want to take a picture with you. So you have to be nice, and polite, and your hair better look good cause they’re going to take a picture of you and post it for all the world to see. And if you don’t oblige their every request, well, the camera’s rolling, and they might post that as well.

Such is the situation that Mr. Robot star Rami Malek now finds himself in, as a deeply, painfully, brutally awkward encounter with a fan is now going viral on the interwebs. A fan tried to take a selfie with Malek — and that was totally fine. But then that same fan asked if Malek would give her friend a shoutout. That, alas, was a bridge too far for Mister Robot. You can see what happens next if you are willing to risk cringing yourself so hard your body locks in the fetal position forever.

Okay guys, so let’s all remember: If you see Rami Malek on the street, be cool and do not ask for a shoutout for a friend. That’s not happening. Oh and go see Bohemian Rhapsody, in theaters this Friday! The publicity tour is clearly going very well.
