NBC Tweeted A ‘Golden Globes’ Monologue Quote About President Oprah And People Lost Their Damn Minds
The Golden Globes took place last night and Oprah was in the audience to receive a prestigious award. Host Seth Meyers opened the Golden Globes with the type of monologue everyone expected: he made jokes about Hollywood’s awakening in 2017 and how basically every leading male in Tinsel Town was discovered to be a massive piece of shit.
Somewhere throughout the monologue, Seth made a joke along the lines of “Nothing but respect for OUR future president.” NBC was live-tweeting the Golden Globes and sent this joke out in a tweet. Because people are stupid, and because we live in the most politically charged era in modern history, everyone on Twitter seemed to lose their damn minds over this tweet.
This is a perfect look at the microcosm that is ‘shit posting’ on Twitter. Behold as your drunk uncle and his friends lose their damn minds at the mere idea that Oprah could one day be POTUS.
It started with this tweet, and NBC later followed it up with video of the monologue because none of these nincompoops seemed to understand that it was part of the monologue.
