Chace Crawford may be getting hate, but he's loving it.

Crawford stars as The Deep, a fish superhero in Prime Video's The Boys. His character, like the others in the show, hilariously parodies a well-known and beloved DC Comics superhero: Aquaman. Other parallels in The Boys supe universe include A-Train who resembles The Flash and Queen Maeve as Wonder Woman.

But a recent interview, the actor revealed that not everyone is a big fan of his imitation—including DC comics fans.

"Occasionally on Instagram I'll get a ‘F––k you, fish guy. You think it's funny to make fun of Aquaman?'" Crawford told GQ. "I'm like, 'perfect. That's exactly what I want.'"

In the same interview Karen Fukuhara, who stars as Kimiko Miyashiro, shared that the show doesn't "shy away from the things that everyone is already thinking."

For example, the series parodied Kendell Jenner's tone-deaf 2017 Pepsi ad. "I laughed so hard," Fukuhara said. "I can't believe we were able to use that."

Chace Crawford Teases a "Weird" Season

Chace Crawford is warning fans that the upcoming season is going to be weirder than ever before. And it makes sense considering in the trailer, Crawford's character The Deep is seen making eye contact with an octopus while having sex. 

At the 2022 SXSW festival, Ackles said to Crawford, "I remember reading that stuff [in the script] and you sent me a text message, and I have to go find it, but I think it was something like, 'I don't know how I'm gonna be able to work after this.'"

"I think I did send that," Crawford replied.
