The comments on it Leah Michele‘s latest video proves that no meme could take a break this holiday season. But hey, at least the former joy actress and Funny girl Star, Lea Michele received a ton of engagement for her latest TikTok video. The singer may be this year’s opening act for Macy’s Parade, but that doesn’t mean she can escape the internet’s wrath.
Michele shared a video in which she lip-synced to Taylor Swift’s “Bejeweled” while showing her transformation from her bedroom to the streets of New York City. Michele received several comments complimenting her. These comments aren’t as harmless as they appear, however, with commenters translating their text into emojis, continuing the online rumor that Michele can’t read.
For those who aren’t in the know, there was a meme that Michele was illiterate and refused to read. People sent pictures of their old signatures and clips from award shows as proof of the singer’s literacy skills. The meme exploded when she was cast to star in the musical Funny Girl. The internet decided to “help” her by accompanying her comments with emojis so she knew what they were telling her through pictures.
If you look at the comments left under the TikTok video, most contain a similar pattern.
The trolling notwithstanding, most of the comments were supportive of Michele, although the intentions were somewhat malicious. If you think about it, this has to be the least harmful trolling we’ve seen. Instead of making fun of someone’s looks, we now secretly make fun of their literacy skills by complimenting everything else about them using emojis.
