No one is safe from Dionne Warwick’s trolling. Not even The Bachelor.
You don’t need to call the Psychic Friends Network to know that Dionne Warwick is a legend. The 80-year-old was notorious for her infomercials touting the psychic network in the 80s. However, she’s been a presence on the music scene since the 1960s.
Due to the prevalent use of social media, Dionne Warwick has found herself the queen of Twitter. She’s actually had a Twitter account since 2012, but her hilarious clapbacks and viral posts gained the attention of Twitter users in 2021.
“Auntie” Doesn’t Get These Stage Names
The “That’s What Friends Are For” singer hilariously trolled several popular musical acts on Twitter over their names. For one, she doesn’t understand where the ‘e’ went in The Weeknd, per the NY Post.
She also called out Chance the Rapper and DaBaby for their stage names. In one tweet, she asked Chance the Rapper why his name explains the obvious fact that he’s a rapper. Chance the Rapper was honored to be trolled by the icon, leading Warwick to propose them rapping together.
Dionne Warwick then suggested a name change of her own – Dionne the Singer.
It was all in good fun, but “Auntie” threw some serious shade at The Bachelor.
Dionne Warwick DRAGS The Bachelor
Season 25 was an EXPLOSIVE season of The Bachelor. Frontrunner Rachael Kirkconnell faced allegations of racially insensitive behavior. To make matters worse, she was rumored to be Matt James’ – the first Black Bachelor – final pick.
As viewers watched it all play out on ABC on Monday, March 15, the hashtag #TheBachelor trended on Twitter.
Dionne Warwick – “Auntie” to her followers – saw it and was shocked. She wrote, “Why is this show still on the air?”
Just discovered #TheBachelor hash tag. Why is this show still on the air?— Dionne Warwick (@dionnewarwick) March 15, 2021
Many of her followers had the same question. One even asked why the show ever made it to the screen in the first place. The Bachelor first premiered in 2002. It still has strong ratings, though Matt James’ season’s ratings were some of the lowest ever.
Fans clearly shouldn’t expect to see Dionne Warwick appearing on Bachelor Nation to serenade anyone anytime soon. However, she was on Season 3 of The Masked Singer.
These days you can find her dunking on celebrities on Twitter. She recently posted that no one is really verified on Twitter unless they have a bio written by her. Dionne Warwick tweeted off bios for a multitude of her followers.
