'Bean Dad' Inspires Twitter To Challenge Dads With 'Beanchdel Test'

If you're as online as we are, you've probably heard about the whole Bean Dad saga by now. You know, the guy who bragged on Twitter about watching his nine-year-old daughter struggle to open a can of beans for six hours. Anyway, the grown-up daughters and sons of Twitter have been texting their own dads asking, 'if I were nine and I asked you how to open a can of beans, what would you do?' It's been dubbed the 'Beanchdel Test' (like the Bechdel Test, get it?) and it's yielding some promising results. Most dads would simply show their kids how to use a can opener, which has given us hope for the future. We've singled out some amusing screenshots of the conversations between Twitter users and their dads. Makes us wonder what our own dads would do!

Give you another can let you start yourself. Help if necessary. | Emily Seibel Yates @emsyates Replying to @CaroIineMoss my sweet, overthinking father

Twitter Cancels 'Bean Dad' After A Series Of Unfortunate Tweets

If you've been on Twitter at all over the past 24 hours, chances are you've heard about the sorry saga of John 'Bean Dad' Roderick and his epic Twitter downfall. If not, we'll catch you up to speed. On Jan 2, @johnroderick posted a marathon of a Twitter thread, boasting at length about refusing to show his hungry nine-year-old daughter how to use a can opener to open a can of beans. In the thread he recounts encouraging her to struggle with the device over a span of six hours in hopes to help her build character, or something. An outcry across Twitter immediately ensued and it didn't take long for people to dig up many racist, sexist, homophobic, and antisemitic tweets from @johnroderick's past. This kerfuffle went so viral, it might even affect the future of Jeopardy! (Don't ask.)

'Bean Dad' is, without a doubt, the unfortunate first main character of 2021. Hopefully this isn't foreshadowing a very cursed year. We've collected some of the funniest Twitter reactions to the whole 'Bean Dad' saga. (Content warning: some of the screenshots of @johnroderick's older tweets contain offensive language.)

She said, How? like all kids do when they want YOU to do it, so I said, Open a can and put it in pot. She brought me the can and said Open it how? | Abby Danger Denton @mizabitha
