In the tweet, a vast collection of Brie Larson’s favorite NFTs can be seen played out, which also includes one from the Ethereum NFT collection The Flower Girls. Some of the other NFTs from the Captain Marvel star’s collection consisted stuff from The Rebels, Women and Weapons, 1989 Sisters, and CryptoVenus collections.

Brie Larson’s digital avatar in the Metaverse has been defined as a mobile metaverse that is “founded by women entrepreneurs” that “insists on breaking down barriers to build a more equitable digital experience for all.” The “some place” mobile application allows users to have their own “personal spaces” in the Metaverse much like Larson’s to use, which they can use to carry out various activities like display NFT collections and even drinking coffee. It also lets a person interact with other users via real-time multiplayer.

Fans have responded negatively to this stunt

However, Brie Larson’s tweet about her NFT collection garnered a lot of negative responses from her fans. “Please no,” commented one user. “NFT profile picture, and now this?” commented another one with a GIF and a caption that reads  “you’re going down a path I can’t follow.” 

The most popular response among them all, which gathered more than 1K likes read, “Brie, you can get coffee in real life,” which referenced her digital metaverse avatar going for a coffee n the clip she shared.
