A screenshot of a purported tweet by Ben Shapiro is going around, claiming that he is once again tweeting about how bad he is at sex with his wife.

“You know how much this endless parade of jokes about me and my wife bothers me? Not one bit. My wife and I both know there are much more important things in a marriage than sexual satisfaction,” the alleged tweet from Aug. 21 reads.

Considering Shapiro’s previous viral tweet implying that his wife has zero “sexual satisfaction” in their marriage, people online didn’t seem to question whether the Aug. 21 tweet was actually written by Shapiro.

As believable as the tweet is, however, it appears to be fake. And, according to TruthOrFiction, which fact-checked the alleged tweet, the original poster of it later implied that the tweet was satire.

Following his viral criticism of Cardi B and Megan thee Stallion’s “WAP”—which has since been turned into a remix and a top sound on TikTok—Shapiro shared with Twitter his “doctor wife’s” “differential diagnosis” of a lubricant vagina.

“As I also discussed on the show, my only real concern is that the women involved — who apparently require a ‘bucket and a mop’ — get the medical care they require. My doctor wife’s differential diagnosis: bacterial vaginosis, yeast infection, or trichomonis,” he wrote at the time.

The apparent self-own led to widespread ridicule online, with many coming to the conclusion that Shapiro cannot arouse his wife.

This is not the first time someone has created a fake tweet to troll Shapiro about him being bad at the sex. “The USPS is not only a bloated and outdate government agency, it is also ineffective and incompetent. It’s been 2 months since my wife went on a Hawaii vacation with her personal trainer; she said she would send me postcards every day and so far none of them have arrived,” Shapiro “wrote” on Aug. 14.

That tweet also turned out to be fake.
