The Internet Thinks Queen Elizabeth II Was Reborn as Trisha Paytas's Baby — Yes, You Read That Right
Everybody has that one friend that makes everything a joke. On Thursday, Sept. 8, that friend was the internet.
Hours after reports revealed that Queen Elizabeth II’s health had taken a turn for the worst, it was confirmed that the monarch had died at the age of 96.
Today was a sad day for the British Royal Family, but Twitter was in tears for an entirely different reason — one that involves controversial YouTuber Trisha Paytas and her newborn bundle of joy.
Amid news of the Queen’s death and the birth of Trisha’s baby, a strange conspiracy theory resurfaced online. According to social media, Queen Elizabeth isn’t really dead, she’s just been reincarnated.
Was Queen Elizabeth reborn as Trisha Paytas’s baby? The TikTok conspiracy explained.
News of Queen Elizabeth's failing health spread across the internet like wildfire.
One day before the news broke, Trisha took to Twitter to reveal that she was dilated and preparing to welcome her baby. Although the timing of these events was purely coincidental, the internet can’t help but believe that Queen Elizabeth was reborn as Trisha’s baby.
On social media, one user wrote, “I found out the Queen died through dozens of tweets about her being reincarnated as Trisha Paytas’s baby because she is going into labor at the same time.”
Another user joked, “It genuinely feels like we’re living in a simulation because for like a year people have been making the Queen being reborn as Trisha Paytas’s child jokes and this is happening on the same day?!”
We can’t verify that there’s any truth to the supernatural conspiracy, but that hasn’t stopped Twitter from making memes about it. “You’re laughing. Queen Elizabeth is about to be reincarnated as Trisha Paytas’s baby and you’re laughing,” a jokester teased in a tweet with more than 300,000 likes.
Although, as of this writing, Trisha has yet to reveal the name of her newborn baby, some users allege that the YouTuber actually named her baby Elizabeth — though, that’s highly unlikely given that the influencer has chosen to raise her child as non-binary.
