Only murders in the building premiered the first two episodes of its second season last night (June 28), and fans reacted badly to Cara Delevingne and Selena Gomez’s on-screen kiss.
The second season of the Hulu crime comedy – which stars Gomez, Steve Martin and Martin Short as a trio who become involved in a murder – welcomed Delevingne as Alice, a new series regular and love interest for Gomez’s character Mabel.
In the second episode “Frame”, Alice invites Mabel to her art studio to destroy an art sculpture to release her pent-up anger. Then the two kiss.
Fans on Twitter have criticized the kiss, with some pointing out the lack of chemistry between the two.
“Like I would have eaten Selena Gomez’s kiss a year ago, but after watching first kill I refuse to see that closed mouth anymore,” one wrote.
A second user tweeted, “Selena Gomez would rather stick her head in a microwave than kiss Cara Delevingne.”
“Having Selena Gomez not know how to kiss girls is one of the biggest heartbreaks of this year so far,” commented another.
“Don’t be mad at me but I just wanted to see Selena Gomez kiss a girl but that kiss in Only murders in the building I felt uncomfortable,” said one. “There was no chemistry and it seemed like they didn’t really care? idk.”
Others defended Gomez, writing: “To all the people who are badmouthing Selena Gomez and calling her HOMOPHOBIC??? because of that one kiss good f*** y’all.”

“I don’t care that Selena Gomez can’t kiss, that’s the most important thing to me, as well as the fact that I can say with evidence that she kisses women, it’s a win for me idc,” one commented.
During the recent red carpet premiere of the show’s second season, Gomez spoke out against the US Supreme Court’s decision Deer vs Wade.
Gomez highlighted her June 24 Twitter post, which included a link to Planned Parenthood’s resources for anyone who wants to proactively challenge the ruling.
