Black Mirror Makers Tweet About US Elections, Confirms It Is Not an Episode From the Series
This is reality.
While the counting was going on and Donald Trump was inching towards the finishing line, most people across the world equated the US Presidential Election results to a horrid episode of Black Mirror- a paranoic science fiction series that has gained popularity this past year. The show had, infact had in one of its episodes, an uncanny similarity to the Trump campaign. Most people on Twitter cited the episode where a blue cartoon bear becomes a populist political candidate.

To put speculations to rest, the official Twitter handle of Black Mirror tweeted this.
This isn't an episode. This isn't marketing. This is reality.

A sly publicity there. But this is, in fact, reality. Donald Trump is the new President of United States Of America.
