Hey ONTD! You may remember my piece of investigative journalism from last year, 'The Bin Borne Identity: The Origin of "Bin Bons" (an ONTD Original)'. Well, today Ben Barnes has seemingly discovered his nickname for the first time since it was coined in 2008.
Netflix spinoff social media page Netflix Geeked posted a 'which bin bons are you' image which Barnes was tagged in. He responded with, "
Hahaha where does this whole ‘Bin Bons’ thing come from?! 🖤"
He then subsequently posted about the nickname on his Instagram stories, and Twitter has had a subsequent field day.

Barnes seems to be accepting the name in good spirits, unlike Robert Pattinson's reaction to 'RPattz' which he likened to "an antacid tablet."
ONTD, have you ever discovered someone else's nickname for you?
