But not everyone is so willing to forgive and forget.
Talk show host Montel Williams took to Twitter when he heard the news to vent his frustration and disgust with the reality star.
A little over a quarter of a century ago, everything in the world changed!
The sky was a little brighter, the birds sang a bit higher and Darren Criss came into the world, probably already wearing pink sunglasses and sporting a smile ear to ear.
Yes, today is the day of birth of one Darren Christ! Let us rejoice and be glad … by reliving some our FAVORITE performances from our favorite stud muffin.
Some of these songs will be new to you; some of them will be classic performances that made you fall in love with DC. All of them will melt your heart, cause your eyes to tear and make you question how you lived your life without listening to his music.
As you can see from his performance from our birthday party two years ago (above), he is part of our world — and we wouldn't have it any other way!
WE LOVE YOU, DARREN! THANKS FOR BEING YOU! KEEP MAKING MUSIC! NEVER STOP!
