The wicked witch of the east, bro is a copypasta meme that originates from a 2018 YouTube video.
In the clip we can see two guys arguing over the fact whether Glinda, the Good Witch from the 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz was a princess or not.
The heated debate was carried out in such a comically passionate manner, that it quickly became an internet sensation.
In 2018, a YouTube user named Austin Parish uploaded the video titled “THE WICKED WITCH OF THE EAST, BRO!”, in which of 2 of his friends are having an argument.
It has gained over 6 million views in less than a year.
The reason behind the video’s success is the style one of the two persons carries out his point of view:
“Hold on hold on hold on. Her sister was a witch right? And what was her sister? A princess, the wicked witch of the east bro. You’re gonna look at me and you’re gonna tell me that I’m wrong? Am I wrong? She wore a crown and she came down in a bubble, Doug. Grow up bro, grow up.”
Not long after the video had gone viral on YouTube, the meme got featured in Tosh.0 Season 10 Episode 7.
In 2019, users on Twitter caught up the quote and made the wicked witch of the east, bro quote into a copypasta, usually using it to caption pictures of people having an arguement.
