About

Damn They Got The Hennessy is a viral video and catchphrase originating from a Facebook Live that was subsequently popularized on Twitter and TikTok as a soundbite. The video features a Black woman with her phone held up to her ear and then saying, "Damn they got the Hennessy! Fuck! They got the Hennessy" in a sing-song voice. The audio is used by internet users to signify finding something they like or being offered something good by someone else.
