When we looked at the entertainment calendar for Fourth of July weekend, most of our attention was the release of the final two Stranger Things episodes for season four.
But, Twitter is here to remind us that another huge franchise also hit screens this weekend: The Minions. And, there are plenty of Rise of Gru memes in case you missed the memo. (We did.)
Steve Carrell is back as questionable villain Gru and his erratic, yellow, banana-loving henchdudes are too. So, here’s the funniest Minion memes and tweets we could find. No spoilers ahead. We think.
