Reba’s “The Night The Lights Went Out In Georgia” Goes Viral At Alex Murdaugh Trial

Thanks Gen Z for giving reba Time in the spotlight during your daily routine.

This TikTok trend had me giggling throughout the Alex Murdaugh trial.

If you’ve been living under a rock for the past few weeks, everyone has been talking about the trial of Alex Murdaugh, who was accused of killing his wife and son.

If you haven’t been actively following the trial, you’ve probably watched the three-part Netflix documentary about the events leading up to the trial. There’s also another docuseries on HBO…

The prominent South Carolina family ran their small town because their father, Alex, ran the local law firm. Through many twists and turns, covering up family misdeeds, murders leading back to the Murdaugh family, and the dissolution of her family’s law firm, Alex Murdaugh’s wife and son were found dead.

The prime suspect was the head of the household, Alex.

He was found guilty of the murders of his wife and son, leading to some funny internet comment (including OJ Simpson), but the story is wildly tragic indeed.

Outside of Twitter, however, Gen Z humor has shone on TikTok with a little help from our friend Reba.

Kids who followed the process post clips of their thoughts in the line of Reba’s “The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia,” where she says:

“Well, don’t entrust your soul to some hillbilly Southern lawyer.”

Funny ironic.

@kamavu08 I’m ready for my jury briefing, Judge. #AlexMurdaugh #AlexMurdaughTrial #MurdaughTrial #Guilty #LawAndCrime ♬ The night the lights went out in Georgia – revived – Reba McEntire

In this case, Reba’s words rang true…old Alex Murdaugh, who for some reason pronounces his name “Alec Murdock,” was found guilty and will walk away for the rest of his natural life…and then some.

This song is classic murder vote and thank goodness Gen Z Reba is exposed.
