‘New Girl’: Hannah Simone’s Cece Was Just Snubbed by Funko’s New Collection
Fans of cult shows like Game of Thrones, Stranger Things or Outlander may be familiar with the collectibles known as Pop! Funko—little figurines of beloved characters.
The latest series to get the Funko treatment was unveiled this week: Fox’s long-running comedy, New Girl.

While most collections feature the key characters, there was one of the New Girl ensemble noticeably missing: Hannah Simone‘s Cece. This snub was brought to Simone’s attention, and the actress wasn’t about to let the brand off the hook, tweeting, “Rude.”

Cece has been a staple of the series since its first season, so it makes sense fans were bothered by the character’s absence. Meanwhile, Zooey Deschanel‘s Jess, Jake Johnson‘s Nick, Max Greenfield‘s Schmidt, and Lamorne Morris‘ Winston all got their own tributes in the Funko collection.
Simone’s Cece is main character Jessica Day’s (Deschanel) best friend and the other regular female star on the show, which kicks off its seventh and final season on April 10. Much like the actress, displeased fans voiced their opinions about the snub—some with more extreme words than others.
Hannah’s only been a lead since season 1 @OriginalFunko …good job. no wonder I don’t support your company.
