On Wednesday, whoever was in charge of Hulu’s Twitter account was feeling a mix of sassy and spicy! Over competitive streaming service Netflix, Hulu exploited Megan Thee Stallion’s lyrics to grow palm trees.
Hulu Isn’t Being Shady
Hulu wrote on Twitter, “We enjoy Megan Thee Stallion because some of her verses incorporate rhetorical questions.” “‘Netflix or Hulu, baby, you choose,” Megan says. Hulu added a side grin emoji to a second tweet.
The tweets are in reference to Ariana Grande’s song “34+ 35 (Remix),” which features Doja Cat and Megan Thee Stallion. The official video for the song has over 83 million views and 2.5 million likes as of Thursday morning.
Megan raps on Ariana’s song, “He finna act like a dog in it so he get the bald kitten (Yeah, yeah).” “Will you watch Netflix or Hulu?” “You chose, baby (You Choose).”
“This is extremely nice,” Twitter user @jkline120 said of Hulu’s shade writing. “Thank you, we agree,” Hulu said, not missing an occasion to modest brag.
Netflix is silent.
Netflix, it appears, either haven’t received the notice or has chosen to disregard it. A clear or subtle answer is missing from their Twitter timeline. Instead, the competing service provided content from their app’s TV shows and movies, including Bubba Wallace’s story.
If you haven’t heard, Netflix recently produced a documentary about Bubba, who is the “only full-time Black NASCAR driver in the Cup series,” according to Netflix.
Megan’s Tempers Flare
Megan and Carl Crawford, Megan and Akademiks, and Megan and Tory Lanez had a social media back-and-forth hours before Hulu’s compliments. Carl first posted a news story about a case against him being dropped. Meg intercepted the message and attacked Carl, claiming there was yet another lawsuit pending for money she had never been paid.
Meg also called out DJ Akademiks, a media celebrity who tweeted about DNA findings before the trial had even begun. After being called out, he doubled down on his accusations. According to AK, DNA findings from the gun and magazine were inconclusive, according to a court document he saw.
Megan inquired, “How are you particularly able to examine documents before they come out in court?” “Are you implying that his attorney is exchanging evidence with bloggers?” “I see.”
The court ultimately decided to postpone the pre-trial hearing until April 5.
Tory and Megan also exchanged messages on social media platforms including Instagram and Twitter. During her discussions with Akademiks, Tory appeared to fire rounds at Meg. “You can’t buy and tweet your way out of this one…not today,” he tweeted. Meg immediately responded, even revealing a text conversation in which Tory apologized for an unnamed event.
He then detailed his repentance, claiming that he was discovered having sex with two of his best buddies. Tory appeared to be inferring from Meg’s statement that the besties were her and Kelsey, who was apparently present during the incident.
Kelsey “absolutely ain’t” shoot her, Meg confirmed, and Tory was asked to “just acknowledge [he] shot [her].”
At one point, Pardi entered the debate and encouraged Tory to have a one-on-one conversation with him.
