Social media users are back at it again, succinctly expressing both excitement and jealousy through a tongue-in-cheek hashtag as they react to the latest marriage of a local celebrity.
The hashtag #HariPatahHatiNasional (#NationalHeartbreakDay) was tweeted so frequently as news broke that singer Isyana Sarasvati tied the knot with Rayhan Maditra in Bandung, West Java, on Sunday that it became a national trending topic on Twitter.
The hashtag, which serves as a humorous way to express netizens’ collective jealousy about not having married the celebrity in question, first surfaced during the wedding of Indonesian singer Raisa and Hamish Daud in 2017.
As is customary on the social media platform, Twitter users wasted little time as they responded to the news of Isyana’s marriage with comedic quips and remarks while reviving the hashtag, which had been tweeted over 2,300 times at the time of writing.
“Rest in peace, my heart,” tweeted @andijusepjo.
Twitter user @97IPANG re-imagined the weddings of Isyana and Raisa as seasons of a fictional TV show, creating a collage of the singers’ engagement and wedding photos alongside their respective spouses with the text “Seasons 1 to 4” as the tagline of the imagined posters.
“Season 5 coming soon...” @97IPANG wrote.
As reported by kompas.com, the news of Isyana’s wedding first surfaced on the Instagram page of wedding planner The Bridestory on Sunday morning.
“Isyana Sarasvati and Rayhan Maditra have officially become a married couple,” thebridestory wrote in an Instagram post, alongside a photo of Isyana and Rayhan. (rfa/kes)
