Why BrosBeingBasic Is The Most Hilarious Thing On Instagram


A bunch of guys poking fun at girls doing “basic” stuff on Instagram is arguably my favorite thing on Instagram. With almost 1,500 posts and nearly a million followers, Brosbeingbasic is the account I go to more often than 9gag. These guys always give me the much needed laughs at the end of a hard day.

The page might be all about guys making fun of girls, but the mastermind behind all that is actually a girl, Ashley Hesseltine. As a female and a feminist she thought it would be fun to create the content that is both fun and non-offensive to women. It lets women laugh at their “basic” selves. To be honest, it feels more like a celebration of girls being girls rather than mocking them.

Anyway, without further ado, check out some of the best “bros being basic” posts in the gallery below:
