Red Velvet Irene causes ‘Mama Mary’ to trend on Twitter

‘Mama Mary’ trended on Twitter and not for the reason you’d expect.

First, we want to apologize to the Catholics who might get offended by this. This was not intended at all.

Okay, so have you been on Twitter this past week? If you’re like the rest of us, then you might have come across the name of Mother Mary trending on the Bird app. No, it really wasn’t because of the actual Virgin Mary, nor was there any miracle attributed to her that led to her name trending on Twitter.

Try searching ‘Mama Mary’ on Twitter and see for yourself. The app’s algorithm would show you tweets about the beaut K-pop idol, Irene from Red Velvet.

Fans couldn’t help but gush over Irene’s exceptional beauty, hence calling her ‘Mama Mary.’

Yes, Miss Irene! Serving MOTHER.

Anyway, go stream Red Velvet’s ‘The ReVe Festival 2022 – Feel My Rhythm’ album here while waiting for their comeback on November 28, 2022.
