During a “Autocomplete Interview” for Wired’s YouTube channel, the You star admitted it when talking about her friendship with Maddie Ziegler.
Maddie and I seem to be the same person in different fonts, Ortega remarked. She is crazy, and I am a weirdo, too, because when I was younger, I used to perform autopsies on baby animals. Like the tiny lizards, I discovered dead in my backyard. Follow For More Updates Twitter
Ortega continued, “She’s an oddball in that she bursts out into characters or gestures or makes faces. We have a special connection.
The complete interview was made public by Wired on November 17, and on Wednesday, Pop Crave tweeted the autopsy remark. The tweet has now received over 40,000 likes and more than 1,000 comments from horrified fans pleading for Ortega to retract the statement.
@SweetSasha_ wrote, “She thought she was being eccentric, but now we are scared she could’ve been a serial killer.”
This is a little shady, Jenna’s bestie [not going to lie], remarked @vhslore.
@odelucasou commented, “Love her to pieces, but this is oversharing, take it back, Jen.”
“This seems like a red flag,” commented @willak8h Wednesday’ star Jenna Ortega’s
Despite all the criticism, some supporters of Ortega supported him, saying it is not strange to perform autopsies on already-dead animals.
Isn’t this simply like dissecting a creature? as everyone performs in biology class in school? Why is it that these quotes claim that this is serial murderer behavior? asked @jihyeojin.
“I did this constantly? Since the animals were already dead, she wasn’t torturing live ones. You people need to unwind,” wrote @percsdelicious in a tweet.

Along with Ortega, the show stars Luis Guzmán from Narcos as Wednesday’s father Gomez Addams, Oscar-winning actress Catherine Zeta-Jones as Wednesday’s mother Morticia Addams, A Wrinkle in Time actor Isaac Ordonez as Wednesday’s younger brother Pugsley Addams, and A Wrinkle in Time actor Luis Guzmán from Narcos.
