Alexa Demie, whose work as Maddy Perez on “Euphoria” made her into a star, has been accused of lying about her age, but the resulting memes are what has everyone talking.
Online sleuths uncovered a list of alumni from her high school claiming she graduated in 2008, which would make her 29 or 30 — not 25, as she had previously stated.
A viral tweet with older photos of Demie standing alongside the elder Kardashian sisters, Sky Ferreira, Grimes and Azealia Banks further called into question how old she actually is.
“Why the streets saying Alexa Demie is pushing 30….. i thought this girl was 22 or 23 years old….” one Twitter user wrote.
“ALEXA DEMIE IS 29-????/2)267)2):: Y’ALL MUST BE LYING,” another said.
Of course, these are just allegations. It’s possible the high school website is incorrect or misleading, and the photos don’t really provide any additional information.
Still, fans expressed shock at the alleged revelation. Her perceived “timelessness” became a meme.
Some fans defended the actress by saying her age really does not matter.
“This Alexa Demie conspiracy theory is showing how normalized ageism is for some of y’all,” one Twitter user wrote.
“Alexa Demie might be lying about her age, she might be a time traveler, a vampire even, but the one thing I know for sure about her: she’s hot,” another said.
So there you have it.
