Series creator Ryan Murphy revealed the title of the next chapter of his horror anthology as American Horror Story: 1984. However, it didn't take long for Wonder Woman 1984 director Patty Jenkins to troll him over the similar title.
The DC filmmaker tweeted, "Dear @MrRPMurphy #AHS1984. Wow, what a great title!!! Oh... wait a minute. Uh... Love, #WW1984."
It didn't end there, as Murphy responded with a smart comeback, saying, "Dear @PattyJenks #WW1984. Wow, what a great title!!! Oh... wait a minute. Uh... Love, #GeorgeOrwell's1984 ;)"
Of course, the tone of these tweets is definitely just two people having fun with one another. As for George Orwell, he released his dystopian novel 1984 in June 1949, so he has both the filmmaker and television creator beat by a few decades.
