The Boys: Vought’s Twitter Account Condemning Starlight is Meta Humour at its Finest

Fans of “The Boys” on Amazon Prime are aware that the Homelander is no saint. Don’t be fooled by that misleading smile, he might have Superman’s abilities packed in Captain America-style patriotism. Homelander has no consideration of human safety and is psychotic and sadistic. The character, who was portrayed by Antony Starr in The Boys, has now released a formal statement denouncing the bogus charges that Starlight, portrayed by Erin Moriarty, made at the end of the most recent “Herogasm” episode. Here’s why this tweet from Vought’s account criticising Starlight is the pinnacle of meta humour:

Following a great deal of conflict that transpired in last week’s episode of Herogasm, Starlight proceeded to go live on Instagram to openly condemn Homelander, renounce her hero name of “Starlight,” and leave “The Seven” forever. Vought, the fictional “Super Hero company,” is active on social media platforms like Twitter and Instagram. The parody accounts are written as though all the events in The Boys are actually happening. Early this morning, Homelander made a statement on the Vought social networks about what Starlight had done. This notice was made on behalf of Vought, denouncing the remarks made by Starlight or Annie January during her Instagram Live. The post’s caption reads, “A statement from Homelander and Vought regarding Starlight’s recent Instagram Live”.

A fictional comment was published on Twitter by Vought International, the evil multinational corporation featured in The Boys, in an effort to cast suspicion on Starlight’s caustic public resignation. “The recent accusations made by Annie January, codename Starlight, on a recent social media livestream in no way reflect Vought International as a whole,” the tweet reads. “Vought assures our shareholders that we will use the full power of the American Legal System to fight these spurious allegations. We can also confirm that January has been terminated, and her status as co-captain of The Seven rescinded, effective immediately”.

The tweet, which was allegedly made by Homelander, goes on to refer to Starlight as a glory hound and assert that once Homelander rejected her, she burst out hysterically. “Sadly, her crazed jealousy has boiled over into insurrectionist territory and has made a reconciliation impossible,” the message reads. “We ultimately regret making January a member of The Seven. Our goal is, and always will be: the advancement of the American people and the expansion of liberty across the world.”
