Halle Berry Gets In On The 'Baby, That’s Keke Palmer' Trend: Here's The Meme Explained

Halle Berry responding to anything is always a moment, but when the Oscar-winning actress chimes in on something that’s trending on Twitter, it’s literally social media gold.

Berry recently sent Twitter into a frenzy when she responded to Keke Palmer’s tweet with “Baby, that’s KeKe Palmer.”

Berry’s response is a one stone slaying two birds ordeal. Bird one is the new Twitter trend where users modify photos with a vintage filter adding a faux, pseudo-historic familial fact. Keke Palmer used a photo of herself with a sepia filter and added the caption, “My granny was such a vibe in the 1940s.”

Other Twitter users jumped the trend, taking photos and essentially repurposing them. One user took a picture of Kim Kardashian losing her earring on Keeping Up with the Kardashians in the ocean and remixed it. The caption read that his great-grandmother was rescued from the Titanic.

Bird two refers to the Twitter moment when a user used the same photo (taken from Akeelah and the Bee) and commented saying this was their sister. Another user replied to the picture and said, “Excuse me ma’am, not to be disrespectful or rude but could you please take post down. That is my sister who was killed by a metra train. And this post is very disrespectful. Idk who you are or if you even know her but I need you to take this down please.”

Someone else responded and said, “Baby, This is Keke Palmer” thus birthing a moment in Twitter Gold history.

Halle Berry’s response literally strikes two birds (no pun intended). Get it? Twitter? Tweet? Twitter’s logo is a bird. Halle Berry’s single tweet literally merges two Twitter moments!
