The funniest Twitter reactions to ‘Big Gretch’ — Detroit’s new nickname for Gov. Whitmer


What up doe! After a hellish week of gun-toting MAGA-freaks storming the state capitol to protest Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's coronavirus executive orders, Twitter gave us a gift. Meet “Big Gretch” — Whitmer's newest endearing nickname bestowed upon her by Detroit.

The original meme featured a photoshopped Gretch in a pair of Cartier Buffs, a Detroit fashion staple and a perfect pairing with Whitmer's iced-out Michigan-shaped necklace in a recent flex, err, appearance. While Big Gretch appears to be a  protective and adoring nickname, it comes with a warning: Big Gretch didn't come to play. Also, as one Twitter user said, “Y'all keep playing with Big Gretch and we gon' be inside carving pumpkins.”

We'll take “Big Gretch” over “Tyrant Bitch” any day.
