"Euphoria" star Lukas Gage received tons of support from fans and fellow celebrities after a director mocked his apartment during a Zoom audition.

On Friday, Gage shared a video on Twitter and Instagram in which a director, who is not shown in the clip, dissed the actor's "tiny apartment" while talking to another person on the Zoom call. And Gage could hear the conversation clearly as the British director wasn't on mute.

"These poor people live in these tiny apartments. Like, I’m looking at his background and he’s got his TV, and you know," the director said.

"Ooh," Gage responded while smiling. "Yeah, mute it. I know it’s a s—tty apartment, so give me this job so I can get a better one."

"Oh, my god. I am so so sorry," the director replied.

"Listen, I’m living in a four-by-four box, it’s fine. Just give me the job and we’ll be fine," the 25-year-old actor added.

"I’m mortified," the director said after apologizing.

The video caught the attention of netizens, including celebrities like Sophie Turner, Molly Shannon, Joe Jonas and more. Gage received praise for his handling of an uncomfortable moment he endured.

"That’s f—ked up," Turner commented. "Handled like a champ," Jonas commented on Gage's post on Instagram with a thumbs-up emoji.

"Thank for you for posting this. We are all with you!" "Glee" alum Jenna Ushkowitz wrote. "You’re a class act and from the way you responded to this must be a joy to work with. Your apt looks pretty great to me and honestly, f that dude, he doesn’t deserve to work with someone like you."

"OMG…I CAN’T EVEN," his "Euphoria" co-star Sydney Sweeney wrote. "Also ur apartment looks better than mine, can I move in?"

"You handled that so well Lukas," wrote "Saturday Night Live" alum Molly Shannon, his co-star on the HBO limited series "The White Lotus." "What a lousy thing for him to say. and here you are putting yourself out there for your audition. vulnerable. wanting to get the part etc."

Gage's response to Shannon answered the netizens' questions on whether or not he got the job. He apparently did not, but he did manage to score another project.

"I love u !!! thank god I didn’t get the part because I wouldn’t be working with you in Hawaii right now," Gage replied to the actress.

Meanwhile, some netizens pointed out that if Gage is living in Los Angeles, his place might have cost him $2,000 a month.

Others wanted Gage to drop the name of the director, claiming that people in the industry deserve to know it. However, a number of social media users don't think it's necessary because the director apologized for the incident right away.

Gage's viral video already has 7.1 million views, over 3,200 comments and 27,000 retweets on Twitter.  Meanwhile, the video on Instagram has been viewed over 607,000 times as of this writing.
