People Debate Whether Eugene Cut Rapunzel’s Hair Too Short in Tangled

Twitter is a breeding ground for hot takes. Sometimes these takes live and die quickly, but in some rare cases, Twitter users keep having the same tired debates with themselves over and over again. Everyone forgets that they already had this exact conversation a year ago, and the cycle never ends. 

A classic example of the cycle of endless discourse is the Rapunzel Hair DebateTM. In the 2010 Disney movie Tangled, Eugene cuts Rapunzel’s hair with a shard of glass to defeat her kidnapper, Mother Gothel. I will admit he cuts it very short. He’s not even looking at what he’s doing because he’s on the verge of dying. Rapunzel gets a short choppy brown bob as a result, and some people are still mad about it. Grown adults on Twitter continue to be upset that Eugene did not think about giving her a longer haircut when he was liberating her from kidnapping, and they’ve been having this same debate since at least 2016.
