Debunking the Viral Hawk Tuah Girl Hollywood Deal Rumor

No, contrary to viral rumors, Hailey Welch, known as the Hawk Tuah girl, has not signed a Hollywood deal with UTA.

A recent viral tweet claimed that the Hawk Tuah Girl, who has gained immense internet popularity, had signed a Hollywood deal with the United Talent Agency (UTA). However, this rumor has been debunked by TMZ, which reported that the claims are false.

The origin of the rumor remains unclear, but it is believed that various talent agencies were keen on signing the Hawk Tuah Girl due to her viral fame. On June 26, an article from Page Six suggested that she had caught the attention of several talent agencies and had even signed with UTA. This article also prompted an X post with the same caption, which has since garnered 2.8 million views.

Despite these claims, TMZ’s investigation revealed that the Hawk Tuah Girl, whose real name is Hailey Welch, has not signed any deal with UTA. According to “sources with direct knowledge,” Welch is not represented by UTA, and no formal agreement has been made. This information was further corroborated by a UTA representative who spoke to Page Six

The rumors started following Welch’s sudden rise to fame after a street interview with YouTubers DeArius Marlow, also known as Dee, and another content creator. During the interview, Dee posed a mildly NSFW question: “What’s one move in bed that makes a man go crazy every time?” Welch’s humorous and candid response, involving a phrase she coined as “hawk tuah,” quickly went viral, captivating social media users with her lively delivery and charismatic personality.

In the wake of her internet success, rumors began to circulate that Welch had signed a deal with UTA. However, these claims have been proven false. Instead of a Hollywood contract, Welch has been capitalizing on her newfound fame through other ventures. She has partnered with Fathead Threads, a Tennessee-based hat company, to sell “Hawk Tuah” Leather Patch Hats, which are embroidered and signed by Welch and retail for $43.70.

The buzz around Welch’s viral moment even caught the attention of celebrity Howard Stern, who discussed the incident on his show on June 25. Stern commented on her natural and uninhibited manner, which he believes contributed to her widespread appeal.

Despite the false rumors and the widespread speculation about her signing with UTA, Welch has remained silent on the matter. She continues to enjoy her viral success and explore various opportunities to leverage her internet fame. For now, it appears that the Hawk Tuah Girl is focusing on her current projects and partnerships, while the Hollywood deal remains a mere rumor.

In conclusion, the viral claim that the Hawk Tuah Girl signed a deal with UTA is unfounded. TMZ and a UTA representative have confirmed that no agreement exists, putting an end to the speculation. Welch’s popularity continues to thrive, driven by her engaging personality and viral internet presence.
