Fifty Shades of Grey opened to record numbers this weekend, and apparently a lot of people had pretty mixed feelings about it (although, Jamie Dornan is hot so who cares either way?).

But while the the erotic film dominated (we're sorry) the weekend box office, there are three opening weekend controversies you might have submissed (again, so sorry). Here are three instances of Fifty Shades fans going Fifty Shades of cray!

NEWS: 7 Things That Surprised Us Watching 'Fifty Shades of Grey'

1. Fifty Shades of three women might have assaulted a guy:

Three women, aged 31, 38, and 51 were reportedly arrested Saturday evening after allegedly assaulting a man who told them to be quiet at a screening in Glasgow.

Some people were even reporting the man had been stabbed with a wine bottle, but the BBC reports that according to the cinema, "nobody was glassed and a wine bottle was not used as a weapon - those involved did not require hospital attention."

Good to hear.

2. Fifty Shades of kids at the drive-in:

We'd think Fifty Shades is the kind of movie you want to watch with your significant other (maybe) inside of a darkly lit theater like the darkest theater possible. But, if you decide you'd rather watch the film adaption of E.L. James' novel projected onto a screen outdoors with children everywhere, well, the WestWind Solano Drive-In in Concord, Calif. can apparently make that happen for you.

The theater is reportedly screening both The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out Of Water and Fifty Shades of Grey from the same parking lot with both screens being apparently visible to all parties. That might make for the most awkward double feature ever.

By the way, tonight is billed on the drive-in's website as "Family Fun Night." We know, we know.

3. Fifty Shades of Johnson oh come on:
