This week, Twitter user @slackerdook and other students at SUNY Purchase revealed possibly the weirdest thing found in a college bathroom (and that’s saying something).

the best thing about my school is the danny devito shrine hidden behind the paper towel dispenser in one of the bathrooms

It’s a shrine to Danny DeVito behind a paper towel dispenser.

@DannyDeVito yo. My college has a secret room that worships you. Come visit!!!!!!!!! SUNY Purchase come through -me and my friends

Here’s a video of how you enter the shrine.

The photos and videos of the shrine soon went viral, because why wouldn’t they?

What in the fuck, this is some horror movie shit.... who tf discovered that little space?? I have so many questions 😂😂

And many students went to go look for themselves.

another perspective of the Danny Devito shrine @ SUNY purchase

Even some drag queens showed up for a photoshoot, according to one person on Twitter.

y’all ever remove the paper towel dispenser from the wall, walk through the wall, which then leads to a danny devito shrine and after a few minutes of being in there a bunch of drag queens come in to do a photoshoot.

Unfortunately, the shrine’s viral fame led to its demise. Betsy Aldredge, a spokesperson for SUNY Purchase, told BuzzFeed News it has since been sealed “for safety reasons.”

However, the school has invited DeVito to campus to meet his "super fans."

We'd like to say we're surprised, but our students are well known for their creativity and sense of humor. @DannyDeVito we'd love to welcome you on campus to meet your super fans.

In a follow-up tweet, the school said it hopes the shrine can be installed somewhere else.

So who created the shrine? Aldredge said the school has been told it is the work of a student from the School of Art and Design.

I got to visit the Danny Devito Shrine before it got closed because of people posting it online. HE WILL RISE #DannyDevito #DannyDevitoShrine #SUNYPurchase @DannyDeVito this is why we can’t have nice things

One student, Phillip HoSang, identified himself to Vice as the creator of the shrine. However, Aldredge didn't immediately verify his identity to BuzzFeed News.

Many people online are now mourning the demise of the DeVito shrine, which remains in all of our hearts.

When you find a hidden shrine to Danny DeVito, don't plaster it's location all over social media. This is what ends up happening. Some things are best left secret.


Fuck everyone who exposed the dungeon/danny devito shrine 😡 now it's sealed 😡😡😡😡😡 why post things on the internet WHEN YOU CAN JUST EXPERIENCE THEM 😡😡😡😡😡😡 FUCK YOUR CLOUT!

UPDATE: Danny Devito has responded!

Your shrine honors me. My heart is filled with love and garbage.Tomorrow, as you may know, is my name day. Do something that makes you feel good. Above all be kind to each other. Pick up trash, recycle, and be aware of plastics in the ocean.

"Your shrine honors me," he wrote. "My heart is filled with love and garbage. Tomorrow, as you may know, is my name day. Do something that makes you feel good. Above all be kind to each other. Pick up trash, recycle, and be aware of plastics in the ocean."
