‘Derry Girls’ creator stunned by ‘The Simpsons’ reference

"I. Am. Dead."

Derry Girls creator Lisa McGee has responded to a recent reference to the hit sitcom in The Simpsons.

On Sunday night (March 20), a Twitter account called Wikisimpsons asked The Simpsons producer Matt Selman whether the appearance of Dairy Girls Ice Cream referenced Dairy Queen or Derry Girls, or both.

Selman responded saying the ice cream parlour was intended to reference Derry Girls, to which McGee replied: “I. Am. dead.”
