Fans Think Elizabeth Olsen Was Bullied by Twin Sisters, Mary-Kate, and Ashley Olsen
Some Twitter users just figured out that Elizabeth Olsen is related to Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, the famous twins from Full House. Now, the internet is digging in on some alleged beef between the Olsen Twins and the younger Olsen. A 1994 song that advised the 2-years-younger Olsen to butt out of their business is making the rounds on the internet. So, was Elizabeth Olsen bullied by her slightly older sisters?
How does Elizabeth Olsen fit into the Olsen twins’ family tree?
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen were born in 1986 to Jarnette and David Olsen. They joined older brother Trent Olsen. Two years later, Elizabeth Olsen was born, which makes her the youngest of four kids born to Jarnette and David. In 1996, the couple made headlines when they announced that they were divorcing.
Initially, the former couple insisted the divorce was completely amicable and that all of the kids were just fine. Media publications thought otherwise, though. David went onto remarry a woman who worked for him. They eventually had two children, Taylor and Jake. The means, Elizabeth Olsen has five siblings, including the famed Olsen twins.
Elizabeth Olsen appeared in several of her sisters’ projects
Long before the younger Olsen became a household name through her work with Marvel, she appeared in several of her sisters’ projects. The Olsen twins’ TV specials and video shorts were the younger Olsen’s first exposure to acting. She appeared in The Olsen Twins Mother’s Day Special in 1993. It is her first acting credit.
In 1994 she appeared as Lizzie Olsen in The Adventures of Mary-Kate and Ashley: The Case of Thorn Mansion, and again in 1995 in both The Case of the Mystery Cruise and The Case of the Christmas Caper. In all three appearances, she portrayed herself. After 1995, the younger Olsen went silent on the acting circuit before reappearing in 2011 in Silent House. She was no longer working as Lizzie Olsen and instead began going by her full name, Elizabeth Olsen. In 2018 she landed her breakout role in Avengers: Infinity War as Wanda Maximoff.
Did Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen get paid to bully their baby sister?
If Elizabeth Olsen isn’t freely acknowledging her connection to Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, she might have a good reason for it. In Style points out that way back in the 1990s, a studio essentially paid the Olsen twins to bully their younger sister, and they did it in the form of a music video. Twitter users dug up the 1994 banger, “B-U-T-T Out.” The song, which was recorded to go along with the video, The Adventures of Mary-Kate and Ashley: The Case of Thorn Mansion, listed all the reasons why their little sister couldn’t hang with them.
As fans point out, it was a toddler version of Mean Girls. They sang that they would rather be picked up by a twister than hang out with Lizzie. The words are harsh for the pre-school crowd, but does Elizabeth Olsen hold a grudge? It doesn’t seem So. According to Us Weekly, the younger Olsen credits her big sisters with helping her figure out the acting world.
