Brands pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to make social media posts go viral, but two “fat, old lesbians” have achieved that goal in just three weeks. How’d they do it? By smoking weed out of homemade apparatuses.
Since opening the Instagram account @420oldfatlesbians (what a great name) earlier this month, the account has gained nearly 70,000 followers, all eager to watch the goofy, good-natured fun videos from Sue and Lee. And for good reason too! The shades-wearing gals are absolutely hilarious, smoking out of hers-and-hers bongs and summoning the marijuana spirits through their “weed-ja board.”
Their deadpan humor found on their Instagram page, which also included one adventure of them “breaking out” of the “hawrspital,” is aimed at changing opinions around who uses cannabis. In an interview with NBC News, Sue said they started the account because they were “tired of the stigmas on weed, on lesbians, fat people, old people,” adding that “people need to just be who they are and not worry about what others think.”
The couple has been together for 12 years and married for four, but they dodged the age question by saying they were “in our third trimester of life.”
“When I was a kid, there is no way I would have looked forward to seeing myself as stoner lesbian on Instagram,” Lee told The Stranger. “It’s pretty cool though.”
