About

Slurpy Faggi and Dr. Butto are two characters supposedly identified by Google Search's AI Overview feature as the first two gay characters in the Star Wars franchise. The false factoid appeared in a viral screenshot shortly after the rollout of Google Gemini search summaries in late May 2024, leading to jokes about the two invented characters. However, it is likely the screenshot was a parody mocking AI Overview's propensity to offer false information and not a genuine response given by Google's AI.

Origin

On May 23rd, 2024, Twitter / X user @computer_gay[1] posted a screenshot of Google's AI Overview feature answering the question, "Are there gay characters in Star Wars?" Google's AI Overview answers "Yes" and says the first openly gay character in the Star Wars universe was named "Slurpy Faggi" and the character is in a committed relationship with his boyfriend "Dr. Butto." The tweet gained over 6,300 retweets and 96,000 likes in one day (shown below).

Spread

Also on May 23rd, 2024, the screenshot spread to other platforms, gaining over 23,000 notes on a Tumblr post by user hotvampireadjacent[2] and over 6,500 points in an /r/196[3] post by Redditor TangentYoshi.

The post inspired jokes about "Slurpy Faggi" and "Dr. Butto" on social media. Several joked that the names resembled the J.K. Rowling Naming Characters meme. For example, on May 23rd, X user @Flailmorpho_[4] joked that Rowling had named the characters, gaining over 25 likes in one day (shown below, left).

Others joked about the perceived failure of Google's AI Overview. Also on May 23rd, 2024, X user @punishedhoots[5] joked about the struggles Google's AI Overview was experiencing, gaining over 20 retweets and 190 likes in one day (shown below, right).

The viral post was then covered by Pink News on May 24th, 2024.[6]

Likelihood Of Parody

There is a significant chance the screenshot is a parody of Google's AI Overview feature and not a genuine mistake by AI Overview. On May 23rd, 2024, Tumblr user machine-saint[7] pointed out that the words "Slurpy Faggi" had not appeared online before @computer_gay's post, which would mean Google's AI would have to have made up the names "Slurpy Faggi" and "Dr. Butto" wholesale, which is typically not how AI works.

Furthermore, they checked Google's AI Overview by typing the same question and received a different list of Star Wars characters (shown below) who actually exist and are gay in the franchise's canon, such as Sinjir Rath Velus.[8]
