A video of Emma Roberts on the beach has become a viral sensation - and the responses are hilarious.

The memes came rolling in after she shared a video of herself posing on the beach wearing a green top while swaying to Lana Del Rey’s “Happiness Is a Butterfly”.

At the end of the clip, Roberts, 30, sticks out her tongue and rolls her eyes in a playful way.

The post was liked more than 1.6 million times.

Unsurprisingly, the memes have come flooding in, and they are pretty funny:

It is not the first time Roberts has become a walking, talking meme.

A clip of Roberts depicting Madison Montgomery in American Horror Story saying: “Surprise b***h. I bet you thought you’d seen the last of me,” routinely does the rounds for being as iconic as it sounds.

And in this instance, Roberts is very much in on the joke. She has liked and retweeted memes people have made of her and, posting a screenshot of her video, she acknowledged that she had gone viral and said:

“Thank you gays and whoever else.”

This prompted further delight from people on social media.

Thanks to Roberts for providing the levity 2021 sorely needed. We are forever in your debt.
