Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum’s four-year-old daughter, Everly, is straight-up savage—in the cutest way possible, of course. When Everly’s parents tried to show her Step Up earlier this year, she asked them if they could watch a “real movie” instead.
She has no qualms about interrupting her mother’s dance rehearsal and making her presence known. Simply put, Everly does what she wants when she wants; it’s her world, and we’re just living in it.
So it’s no surprise she didn’t respond well when Channing told her he ate all her Halloween candy.
Of course, no child on earth would respond well to this news; that’s why Jimmy Kimmel Live has an entire segment about it that airs every year.
Tatum guest-hosted the talk show last night, which is where he shared the video of himself dropping the no-candy bombshell on Everly. After hearing the news, Everly immediately turned her back on Channing and crawled over to Jenna. “I’m sorry; I just got so hungry,” Channing says.
The teasing goes on for a few more seconds before Channing reveals he didn’t actually eat her candy. Everly still isn’t pleased, though, and essentially says the toddler version of, “WTF? That’s not funny, dad!” And she’s right:
Honestly, this is low-key a horrible thing to do to children. Why is this a Kimmel segment?!
But I digress.

Earlier this year Tatum wrote a really beautiful essay about Everly for Cosmopolitan magazine, which more than makes up for this gag. “I don’t want her looking to the outside world for answers,” he wrote. “My highest hope for her is just that she has the fearlessness to always be her authentic self, no matter what she thinks men want her to be.”
