Prince Harry May Not Be Next in the Line of Succession, But Oh My God, He Is king of oversharing,
With every new excerpt being revealed from her upcoming memoir, “Spare” — whether it’s altercation with his bald brother WilliamHis frostbite penis or when he slept with an older woman who “treated” [him] to like a young horse”- the Internet is having a ball.
In fact, Twitter users have taken it upon themselves to remix some of the stories shared by the Duke of Sussex, making the press tour even more entertaining. Briefly impersonating BBC News, culture writer Hannah Pfeiffer decided to craft some hilarious tweets showcasing Harry’s “revelation”.
a tweet Read, “In his upcoming memoir, Prince Harry writes about seeing Meghan in bonnet for the first time. ‘From that moment on, I knew I wanted to protect her the way satin protects her African hair.’ hit series “Girlfriend,” while one poked fun at Tyler Perry’s Madea character. (Lest we forget that Perry is Lilibet’s godfather.)
With over 30,000 likes on the said tweet alone, many users speculated that Phifer had been letting these stories sit in his drafts for weeks, plotting the perfect moment to send to the press. “I’m not as calculated as people think I am,” the 27-year-old author told HuffPost.
However, this isn’t the first time Bird is impersonating outlets on the app; He once changed his profile picture and Twitter handle to resemble a popular account movie update.
“I would just get randomly bored and change my screen name and my icon to resemble a gossip blog and put out a series of fake news tweets,” she said. “This time, it was basically the same thing. I mean, some of the things that are actually in his book are actually way more ridiculous than anything I tweeted. People had to parse what was real. It was a lot of fun to watch him try to do.”
Pfeiffer said that @rittenbyhanna is technically her professional Twitter account, but fortunately she is untouched by policies banning parody accounts or impersonators.
“There are two people working on Twitter at the moment. No one is paying attention to me,” she said with a laugh. Not everyone is lucky though; actor and comedian Jabuki Young-WhiteFor example, Has been banned multiple times and lost his verified blue check, especially after impersonating the FBI.
In addition to revealing the urgent need for media literacy in this country, Pfeiffer’s hit tweets have, most importantly, inspired other iterations from other Black Twitter users.
Content creator and therapist Shaham McLaurin wrote, “BREAKING: Prince Harry reveals in autobiography he credits US rapper Ice Spice for encouraging him through rocky split with family.” Quoting the Bronx rapper’s lyrics and impersonating Duke, McLaurin tweeted, “When he said ‘You gave me shit, but what do I do? ‘” It resonated.
There are arguably two camps here: sheer disbelief in this train accident you can’t look away from, versus general indifference to the affairs of another white family embroiled in a deeply racist, colonial institution. Simply put, Pfeiffer said she was just fed up with the drama of the royal family.
“I have genuine criticisms of the institution, but I find them boring. There are more interesting things coming out now with this memoir. It’s essentially just family drama in terms of this institution,” Pfeiffer said. but still, i think [Harry] Should just get a therapist, because people are trying to assign it more than anything else. At the end of the day, he also said in a recent interview That he still cares about the monarchy. They’re not these fanatics… I like to poke fun at that.
In the timeless words of New York Times columnist Michelle Goldberg, “we should all know less about each other, Regardless, “Spare” is the gift that keeps on giving, thanks to Black Twitter’s ability to bring levity to any and every situation.
