In Deadpool 2 when he says to Negasonic Teenage Warhead "I'm just surprised anybody would date you, especially Pinkie Pie from My Little Pony" before winking at the audience.
I know why he called her that (other than "she has pink hair") and winked to the audience, but does anyone else on this site know why they'd reference MLP in a very family-unfriendly film?
Is anyone else here aware of its popularity among all ages (much like Hello Kitty) and that not only does it reference shows that kids are unlikely to have seen (like Indiana Jones, James Bond, and Game of Thrones), but also a few villains die (like the one in my avatar, and another voiced by Liev Schreiber)?
For some reason there still seem to be millions of people in the dark coz it doesn't get referenced nearly as often as it should, compared with Hello Kitty or Spongebob. There was not a single reference in MCU or Ready Player One (which referenced Spongebob and Hello Kitty, respectively), Deadpool 2 was one of the rare references.
