Fact Check: Ben Shapiro Did NOT Tweet 'Next Joe Biden Is Gonna Tell Me How Long My Pubes Have To Be' Fake Message

Did conservative commentator Ben Shapiro tweet "next Joe Biden is gonna tell me how long my pubes have to be"? No, that's not true. A tweet allegedly by Shapiro that claimed he "doesn't have any pubes yet" is a fake satirical message.

The claim appeared as an Instagram post on October 19, 2021. It opens:

Next Joe Biden is gonna tell me how long my pubes have to be. Jokes on you Joey B. I don't have any pubes yet. My mom says maybe next year.

The fake tweet has the date of September 10, 2021.

A Twitter search of "Ben Shapiro pubes" does not yield results for any such tweet.

The Way Back Machine Internet Archive took two screenshots of Shapiro's Twitter account on September 10, 2021, none of which show a posted message about his "pubes":

Lead Stories previously published a debunk of a fake Shapiro tweet. He was previously mocked about a tweet he posted about his wife's opinion of Cardi B's song "WAP," but that was a real tweet:

Rolling Stone magazine described the "faux outrage" expressed by Shapiro over the Cardi B song that set him up for criticism of his own sex life with his wife.
