It all started when the 25-year-old actress happened to walk by a costume shop and saw fits from her latest Marvel movie. While she spotted the superhero gear for Scarlett Johansson and David Harbour's characters, Pugh was suddenly hit by an intense wave of FOMO when she realized that her character's costume had been left out. And she felt the need to hit up Instagram to share her thoughts on the whole thing with her 5.1 million followers.

"What the.." the Little Women actress started off in her caption. "Apparently Yelena didn't make the cut. GUYS. I LITERALLY TALK ABOUT POCKETS IN NEARLY EVERY SCENE," the actress continued to vent. And while Pugh thought the costume idea was as evident as 1+1=2, she decided to walk us through it step-by-step. "Halloween- ALOT OF FREE SWEETIES," the actress continued to write. "May I remind you that the vest has "a LOT OF HANDY POCKETS." Still don't get it, you guys? Well, Florence isn't done with her equation yet anyway.

"Costume+vest+POCKETS= someone who came prepared. IT IS with great importance we understand how vital Yelena is for Halloween," the Don't Worry Darling lead actress continued. "Rant over, thanks for listening." And while Florence might have been feeling frustrated, her fans were enjoying every second of it. The post raked in close to 2,000,000 likes in just one day, in addition to fans sharing their own two cents. "But I was planning to be the bear from Midsommar," one user commented. Another added, "I'm canceling Halloween," in defense of Pugh's frustrations. "THE CAPTION PLSS," someone else added, clearly enjoying the comedic rant.
