Nick Jonas is, according to Google, 5'7", which is, according to Wikipedia, two inches shorter than the average male height in the U.S. So maybe he’s a little sensitive, but also he’s got a good face and millions of dollars and is beating diabetes with fitness so, all things considered, he’s doing fine.

But even the finest have their moments of insecurity. Yesterday, a person whose Instagram handle is zak_hanzal posted a picture he took with the pop star, in which he teased Jonas about his height:

In response, Jonas left the first comment: “You need some manners ‘bruh’ I didn’t need to stop to take that picture with you. Just rude. Very rude.”

This is a great point. While being a celebrity isn’t exactly thankless—in fact, you are thanked for merely existing in so many ways on a given day—it really must be annoying to take time out of your busy life to appease someone who wants a picture so they can be thanked for existing alongside you (via “likes”) on Instagram. And then to be lightly roasted in response is just rude! Very rude!


I fully support Nick Jonas’s Stephanie Tanner-ing.

Granted, there are bigger (and taller) things to worry about, but when you’re right you’re right. zak_hanzal has since changed the caption:


So that’s nice, Nick Jonas won this Instagram. (P.S. It’s okay to be short.)
