'Netflix should buy the rights' - Twitter reacts to GAA catfish story gripping the country
The country has been gripped this week by the GAA catfish story featured on the 2 Johnnies podcast. Part 1 and Part 2 of the story have now been released and the country is hooked.
Johnny B reveals he was one of at least 40 well-known personalities, including GAA players, duped by a catfish running more than 20 different social media accounts.
It has been the top trending topic on Twitter all week in Ireland and some of the reactions have been hilarious:
The #GAAcatfish feels like the Bloggers Unveiled saga, both uniting all walks of entertainment and starting our summers with the perfect smoking area gossip. I feel alive. This is a proverbial sign of good weather. Summer 2018 was unreal— Sorcha (@sorcham12) May 27, 2022

Thank god social media wasn't a massive thing when I was a swashbuckling, free-scoring full forward of destruction under 16 or minor or I'd have been a sitting duck and prime candidate for the #Gaacatfish to sink her fishy claws into me too— Seffie O'Donnell (@Seffie_1) May 26, 2022
