The internet can be a wonderful place, but it can also be a dangerous one too. Sometimes what appears to be a hilarious meme is a reflection of something much more disturbing, so you might want to think twice before you praise the web’s latest shade queen, Kim Jong-Un’s sister.
Thirty-year-old Kim Yo-jong was seated behind American Vice President Mike Pence at the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympic Games, something which was supposed to represent an attempt to improve relations between the US and the secretive communist state.

Needless to say, President Trump has made his feelings about her brother Kim Jong-Un clear, and Pence’s actions were very much a reflection of that. Although the pair were seated close each other, he refused to make eye contact with the 30-year-old or acknowledge her in any way.
However, while Pence was cheering during the ceremony, Yo-jong briefly looked at him – a look which has been dubbed her “deadly side-eye.”

Some left-wing people on the internet thought that her glance was incredibly relatable, especially as it appeared to be directed at the Trump administration and, without giving a second thought to the regime she represents, began to hail her as a “shade queen”.
CNN went as far as to claim that she was “stealing the show” at the opening ceremony.

The Washington Post went on to describe her as the “Ivanka Trump of North Korea.”

Some members of the left even interpreted Yo-jong’s side-eye as a sign that she wanted to defect from her brother’s oppressive regime.

While Twitter is often a great platform for public opinions to be voiced, this is one area where people clearly need to brush up on their knowledge before deciding to jump on the bandwagon to praise Yo-jong for many things, such as her job, and that’s just for starters.
