Take a seat halved cupcakes and existential crises about the never-ceasing passage of time, it seems child star-turned-adult-star-but-not-like-that Macaulay Culkin has found the best way to celebrate a half-birthday or any occasion for that matter: Watching Jake Paul get his ass beat.
On Sunday, February 26, Culkin ended his 13-month and three-week Twitter hiatus to announce that he was ringing in the big 4-2 and ½ with a healthy dose of cathartic schadenfreude, watching the controversial YouTuber get whopped by pro boxer Tommy Fury.
There’s no better way to celebrate your half birthday than to watch Jake Paul get punched in the head repeatedly.— Macaulay Culkin (@IncredibleCulk) February 26, 2023
“There’s no better way to celebrate your half birthday than to watch Jake Paul get punched in the head repeatedly,” Culkin mused in a post that has since garnered more than 3.6 million views on the social media platform.

As Twitter user @Bryzzinosa so aptly put it, "Everyday I’m just an average Macaulay Culkin fan. And every day he tweets something that makes me a fan even more."
