12 of the sarkiest reactions to the misspelling of a hashtag celebrating Independence Day

Well, this is awkward.

FOR ANYONE WHO might not be aware, a hashtag celebrating the United States is currently trending on Twitter.


Well, that’s hardly surprising, says you, given the fact it’s the 4th of July - a federal holiday in the US, which commemorates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence in 1776.

But here’s the thing – the hashtag is spelled incorrectly.

Ladies and gentleman, more than 60,ooo people on Twitter would like to wish you and yours a Happy IndepenDANCE Day.

Either way, reaction has been funny AF.
