'Euphoria' star Lukas Gage keeps it classy after a director's insulting Zoom fail

You've gotta remember to hit that mute button if you're going to talk trash.
(Better yet, maybe just don't talk trash?
Especially not this kind of trash.)
Lukas Gage, a recurring player on HBO's Euphoria, shared a little clip on Friday from a recent Zoom call in which the unnamed "director" he met with made some unprompted comments about the appearance of Gage's apartment.
He captioned the video "psa if youre a shit talking director make sure to mute ur shit on zoom mtgings," and his actual response in the moment was the height of class.
"Like I'm looking at his TV and and—" the voice continues, before Gage breaks the ice.
"Oh my god, I am so, so sorry, Lukas," the director respond in what I can only describe as the flattest of monotones.
"I am so sorry.
Maybe the director really was sorry (I'm sure he was), but his tone isn't exactly apologetic.
The added lesson for people who default to making jerky comments like "Look at this poor shlub's apartment!"
is... maybe don't do that.
Whether it's on social media or live and in person, never underestimate your ability to shut the hell up rather than saying something shitty,
