New Orleans Newspaper Goes Viral with Clever 'Hawk Tuah' Headline

The Times Picayune in New Orleans went viral after a clever headline referencing the ‘Hawk Tuah’ craze, capturing social media’s attention and sparking laughter.

Bollywood Fever: A New Orleans newspaper has gained widespread attention online for its humorous reference to the ‘Hawk Tuah’ phenomenon in a front-page headline.

The viral video of a girl graphically describing her sexual exploits—complete with a mimicked spitting noise—has dominated social media over the past week. High-profile figures have joined in on the trend, with UFC legend Conor McGregor even helping fans identify the girl in question.

WWE star Logan Paul also stirred social media by performing a ‘Hawk Tuah’ move during his latest show in New York on Friday night.

The ‘Hawk Tuah’ girl is making waves beyond social media, earning subtle mentions in print headlines. On Friday, social media user Jono Barnes suggested that The Times Picayune in New Orleans should headline their coverage of the Pelicans’ trade for Dejounte Murray from the Atlanta Hawks with “FROM A HAWK TUAH PELICAN.”

Conor McGregor, seeking to identify the girl from the viral clip, followed a private account on Instagram belonging to “Haliey Welch,” who has 34,000 followers. Welch’s bio indicates she is from Tennessee, and her moment of fame originated from an interview on the streets of Nashville.

Fans on social media have linked Welch to the viral video, with some sharing pictures from her account before it went private. McGregor, accepted as a follower by Welch, is among the 2,519 accounts she follows on Instagram.
