Nominated for her break-out role in “Beast of the Southern Wild,’ the future A-Lister, recently tapped to revive the role of ‘Annie,’ continues to woo hearts all over Tinsel Town.

Twitter instantly exploded:
The tweet has been deleted, but outraged Twitter users have taken screenshots of their feed at the time of the comment.
