After the trailer was released, calls for a boycott of Wonka spread widely, even in Indonesia. The average netizen admits that he is lazy about watching the Wonka film because of what Timothee did.

Reporting from Newsweek, the SNL skit shows the three members of a comedy group called "Please Don't Destroy" trying to convince Chalamet, who plays an aspiring musician, not to jump to his death. They promised to support him on social media, until they learned that his band was called "Hamas", pronounced "Hay-mus". "Dude, I don't want to share Hamas songs on Instagram!" one of them shouted at Chalamet.
