27-year-old Angela Yen, has become a viral sensation after claiming that she woke up with an Irish accent after undergoing tonsil surgery.
On a video-sharing social networking service, TikTok, Yen said she had a tonsillectomy on April 19 and was confused when her Aussie accent reportedly turned into an Irish brogue 10 days after the procedure.
“I’ve never been to Ireland. I grew up in Australia and had an Aussie accent for the last 20 years since I moved here when I was 8 years old,” she told Storyful.
The Brisbane resident met with doctors and did research trying to figure out what happened to her normal accent. She told viewers that she’s found a neurologist with a speciality in stroke rehabilitation who is willing to help diagnose her.
