Hood stuck on 18-55mm II

I had put my hood on backwards as usually when done shooting but I tried to take it off and its not coming off. Usually it comes off quite easily.. I don't want to force it. Anyone have this problem?

I don't have the mod.II but when a hood gets stuck on my 18-55 or 18-250, I just force it. The hoods are pretty damn tough plastic and not easy to break.

MF? Well it's off the camera and it has QS.

It was super easy the first 500 times, I yanked somewhat hard but felt like I must've put it on wrong. Hope it doesn't break, I'll try it when I come back to it Sunday.
