- “Scream” star Dylan Minnette responded on Twitter to fans “demolishing” him for red carpet look.

- Minnette said it was a standard press junket and had no idea there’d be a red carpet.
“Scream” star Dylan Minnette responded on Twitter to fans “demolishing” him for “underdressing” on the red carpet.
The actor, best known for his lead role in “13 Reasons Why” and his alternative rock band Wallows, has a role in the upcoming “Scream” reboot.
During a photocall for the movie last week, Minnette stood out as the only one wearing casual clothing at the event.
In response to a video of Minnette on the red carpet next to “Scream” co-stars Mason Gooding and Jack Quaid, who were both wearing suits, Minnette explained why he was wearing a “sweater shirt” and jeans.
“To everyone absolutely demolishing me for ‘underdressing’ to the ‘scream premiere red carpet’… it wasn’t a premiere,” Minnette wrote on Twitter. “Our premiere was (sadly) cancelled. of course i would’ve dressed for the occasion of a premiere sillies!!”

Minette continued in a following tweet: “This was on a standard press junket day where there’s no pressure on a dress code, and there was a group photo being taken midday with one photographer. i also had no idea there would be a red carpet. and that’s also just a very unfortunate video lol.”
He added later: “also, it was a sweater shirt, not a t-shirt, so.”
“Scream” is out in theatres this Friday. While a number of new actors will be joining the franchise, Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, and David Arquette are reprising their roles in the sequel.
Arquette told The New York Times that it was “a cathartic experience” to shoot the movie with his ex-wife Cox, with whom he shares a 17-year-old daughter. The pair met on the set of the original “Scream” in 1996.
