Woman kicked out of home on Christmas Eve after making family watch Saltburn

"It was the bath scene that did it"

Emerald Fennell's graphic black comedy Saltburn has proved to be too much for one woman's unsuspecting family, who kicked her out after she suggested they watch the movie together on Christmas Eve.

When it comes to Saltburn, viewers either love it or hate it.

The divisive movie follows Oxford University student, Oliver Quick (played by Barry Keoghan) as he becomes obsessed with a wealthy fellow student (Jacob Elordi), who invites him to spend the summer at his family's estate.

The latest offering from Academy Award-winning filmmaker, Emerald Fennell, provides a witty commentary on how the English aristocracy interacts with the middle classes.

However, Saltburn has perhaps become better known for a number of R-rated scenes that certainly aren't for the faint-hearted.

Like the 'bathtub scene' for example, definitely not for those without a strong enough stomach.

So, it should come as no surprise that when one woman decided to watch the film with her family over the holidays, things went very wrong very quickly.

Taking to X (formerly known as Twitter), the woman detailed the events in a series of tweets.

It all started with a post on Christmas Eve that read: "Movie day with the fam & my choice is Saltburn xo."

Less than half-an-hour later, however, things had taken a turn for the worse.

The woman, who posts under the username @applekaurr, provided an update. She wrote: "It has been turned off & i’ve been told to go for a walk."

The post was accompanied by a screenshot of a text she'd been sent by her mom, reading: "When you come back I want you to apologise to everyone you d**khead."

One woman was kicked out by her family after suggesting they watch the film together on Christmas Eve.

While undeniably hilarious, many X users were bemused by her choice of film for the family gathering.

One person wrote: "They should make you clean the tub as punishment." IYKYK.

Another said: "Seeing it be near the top of [Amazon] Prime most watched during the Christmas weekend like 'oh they're ruining a LOT of family gatherings' and I'm so glad to hear I was right."

And a third commented: "Watched it as well today, mom joined me halfway through and told me i need psychiatric help for sitting through the entire thing."

The original poster later revealed which scene was the final straw for her traumatized clan. "It was the bath scene that did it," she confirmed.

It's just a suggestion, but I'd maybe stick to Home Alone next time around...
