Brazzers’ Law finds clear overlap between guys who tweet at news sites and porn stars

There’s some truth in jokes.

Here’s a good joke at the expense of the type of person—often an over-40 white guy—who feels compelled to share his opinions with a major news network on Twitter: He’s probably also tweeting at porn stars.

Call it “Brazzers’ Law,” a term coined by Twitter comedian Stefan Heck (who was profiled on the Daily Dot back in 2012) and named after the Brazzers porn empire.

It’s not literally true that the social media managers of major news organizations are only interacting with porn fiends. Porn and major news networks both have huge audiences. Some overlap is inevitable.

But Heck found at least three solid examples of people who have opinions on both politics and “huge boob pics”—and, as they say in the Mainstream Media™, three of anything is a trend. He’s managed to triangulate a specific internet stereotype, here: The guy who not only feels strongly about both of these subjects, but feels compelled to let everyone know it.

People responding to Heck’s tweet seem to be in agreement that this phenomenon is A Thing:

Although Twitter has hundreds of millions of accounts now, some people still use it as if their @s and follows aren’t public. Even politicians have been caught following porn stars.

Oh, and speaking of porn, Heck just launched a new podcast ostensibly about the Spike TV reality show “Bar Rescue.” It was hosted on webcam porn platform LiveJasmin for one half-episode—with “Dicks Out for Harambe” creators Brandon Wardell and Sexual Jumanji guest-starring—before it got banned from the site.
