Fans of Spider-Man: No Way Home have caught the ire of TikTok users for their movies theater mess. 

Scenes of the mess they left behind for theater workers have gone viral on the app, with one video racking up over 7 million views.

Weeks before the premiere, one AMC worker, user @yourbestieslover, warned of the coming storm. 

“PLEASE STOP BUYING TICKETS FOR THE LOVE OF GODDHDHS – sincerely an AMC worker,” the video was captioned.

A follow-up video shows @yourbestieslover and co-workers shaking over the sky-high ticket sales, knowing the massive crowds it would bring.


In a video posted after a Spider-Man viewing, it looked like a tornado ripped through the cinema. 

Popcorn, snacks, and soda splattered all over the cinema floor. Mounds of food are left everywhere for employees to clean up.
