As Twitter users compared the white-knuckle election results to an episode of Black Mirror, the Twitter account for cult Netflix series weighed in with some thoughts on the jokes.
“This isn’t an episode. This isn’t marketing. This is reality,” the account posted on Tuesday night, as election results put Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on course to become the next President of the United States.
Throughout the night, Twitter users equated Trump’s surprise surge to an episode of the Charlie Brooker series, which often depicts a dystopian future where the public acts against its own best interests.
