2018 was all about diversity in the movies, film industries tried their best to include different ethnicities, races, body types, and sexual orientations. So for the first time, more people found themselves being a protagonist of a captivating Hollywood movie than ever before. But even though that sounds like a huge step towards an inclusive and diverse movie industry, there is still a long way to go. Nowadays, movies are filled with hilarious clichés that just don't make any sense, and there is no chance any of them would work in the real world, especially when it comes to professions. Imagine being a freelance photographer in New York, living in a huge apartment with a walk-in closet and going for dinner every single evening. If that was the case, you know that every employee at Bored Panda would be a New York resident by now. One Twitter user got so sick of these stupid clichés he Tweeted one and it quickly became a viral thread, scroll down to see if there's one about your profession!

This one is way too common. They even had one of the muses in Disney's Hercules basically be that cliche.

The husband also tends to act like an overgrown child and is not very smart, but his wife puts up with him and loves him nonetheless.

Or then you are a Dad that is murdered by a villain at the beginning of the movie and the protagonist has to revenge that. Or then you are a Dad that tells bad jokes and comes to your room when you are trying to masturbate or have sex.

Hello! I am a high school principal in a movie. I am a dull, boring killjoy who regularly abuses his/her students, humilliates newcomers or condones bullying without any repercusion -but somehow very concerned about school boards approval- and an enemy of any innovation or inspiration from students or staff. There is always the new teacher who questions my authority.
