As we all socially distance ourselves to slow the spread of Coronavirus, we’re mostly staying home and streaming our favorite shows and movies. Thank goodness for media services like Netflix, Hulu, and UMC amirite?
While binge-watching, Rapunzel fans came across a shocking coincidence … in the 2010 version of the fairy tale, the princess is locked away in a tower and isolated from a village that just so happens to be named Corona. When fans realized, they were stupefied — and swearing.
“When you realized Rapunzel was quarantined for 16 years and the fictional kingdom where she was born is called ‘Corona.’ B*TCHH WE LIVING IN A TANGLED WORLD,” one tweeted.
“OMG WTF IN TANGLED RAPUNZEL LIVES IN SELF ISOLATION IN THE FICTITIOUS GERMAN CITY OF F*CKING CORONA,” another wrote.

Unless you’re living under a rock, you are aware that the deadly virus has changed life as we know it in a very short amount of time, as there is no vaccine so public health officials suggest people stay away from one another, wash our hands frequently, and avoid touching our faces.

We will continue to keep you posted as more information surfaces.
