    A 'Minions' inspired TikTok trend forced a cinema to refund customers more than £1,300

    The craze, labelled 'Gentleminions', sees groups of teens sport their smartest suits to see 'Minions: Rise of Gru' and posting their best impressions of the titular character - voiced by the comedy legend Steve Carell - however it can be quite raucous, disturbing the viewing pleasure of other patrons as the teens love to cheer along with the little yellow cuties


    A manager from a Worcester branch of Vue, a movie theatre, told The Daily Telegraph newspaper: "The trend cost me £1,300 yesterday. I had to refund all of the tickets in that theatre because of kids shouting and mimicking the Minions while the film was playing.

    "It was a group of about eight kids. Now, when we see any kids coming in to see the film dressed up we give them a warning.

    "We tell them that if there is one complaint, whatever that may be, they will be kicked out of the cinema."

    Another cinema experienced the same issue.

    The manager said: "The issue with the trend is children running around and treating the film as an opera, shouting and clapping.

    "We had one small disturbance but we asked the kids to be quiet and they were so, fortunately, it's not been an issue for us."
