A news outlet has copped some serious backlash on Twitter today for claiming that Kirsten Dunst is “best known as Spiderman’s girlfriend”.

The now deleted tweet from Reuters Top News read:

No Reuters, Kirsten Dunst Is Not “Best Known As Spiderman’s Girlfriend,” Show Some Respect

And to make matters worse, the tweet came just days after Kirsten discussed her frustrations and the lack of recognition she receives in an interview on Sirius XM. Honestly, same.

First of all, can we please show some respect for this Hollywood icon?

Kirsten Dunst received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame this week for her outstanding work as an actress in roles that were way more important and influential than being a romantic love interest for some guy.

We were first introduced to her in 1994 as Claudia in Interview with the Vampire. She was nominated for a Golden Globe and starred alongside Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt, which is arguably a bigger deal than being anyone’s girlfriend.

Kirsten then grew up in front of our very eyes, starring in Jumanji, Little Women and The Virgin Suicides. She’s even played Marie Antoinette. What more do you people want?

If that wasn’t enough, she also gave us Drop Dead Gorgeous, Dick, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Mona Lisa Smile. This woman has done it all.

But even that isn’t quite as important as her role in BRING IT ON.

The 2000 cult-fave cheerleading movie is ICONIC. Yes, she was Mary Jane Watson in Spider-Man, that’s all well and good. But I think we’re forgetting how important Bring It On really is.

Despite being a bit of a flop initially, Bring It On went on to become an early 00s cult classic. It paved the way for a plethora of cheer, dance and teen sport films that make for a mighty fine binge-watch, if you ask me.

You’re kidding yourself if Bring It On isn’t the first film that comes to mind when you hear the name Kirsten Dunst.

But it looks like Reuters have already heard the message loud and clear, and have deleted the tweet after a tonne of backlash from the Dunst army.

Congratulations to Kirsten Dunst for getting a star on the Walk of Fame. May this be a lesson to us all that she is an icon and should never be disrespected again. All hail Queen Kirsten Dunst.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a Bring It On marathon to watch.
