The "evidence" that has been circulating around the internet is a photo of Homer Simpson with his ear circled as it appears to be drawn like an "@" sign, strikingly similar to the Threads logo, which is shown beside the image.
"The Simpsons predicted threads?!??" Twitter user @bestinteracted asked.
However, all is not what it seems since Homer's ears are drawn differently in the cartoon show, and so the image is not real, rather it has been edited to make it look like the Threads logo.
Someone was quick to point this out in response.
So, in conclusion - no, The Simpsons did not predict the Threads app.
