Joe Jonas is getting praise from Irish people over his Paddy's Day Instagram post
It's not easy being green.
There are certain ideas that the rest of the world has about Ireland that we here are more than happy to play up to.
Being sound? Yeah, that's us. A problematic relationship with alcohol? Sure.
But if there's one thing we as a people cannot and will not tolerate, it's folks from abroad calling our national holiday 'St Patty's Day'.
Like, would you be well?
Lots of Irish Twitter users have had enough and are today fighting back.

As an Irish person, I can confirm that it's 'St. Patrick's Day', 'Paddy's Day', or, if you want to be cool, 'Lá fhéile Padraig'.
NEVER 'St. Patty's Day'. Ever. For any reason. Ever. Even once.

If Americans insist on using Patty's Day instead of Paddy's Day I'm afraid I have no option but to henceforth refer to their historical figures as Gorge Wushington and Abrabam Lincome, I'm sorry I don't make the rules ☘️

Thankfully, one major US star gets it.
Irish people are praising Joe Jonas (the best of all the Jonases, TBH) for getting it right in his Patrick's Day post to Instagram.
The singer shared a photo of himself wearing a green shirt with the caption "Ready for St. Paddy’s Day like...".

"Thank you for not saying patty’s day .... most annoying thing ever it’s paddy’s day or Patrick’s day!," one fan commented.
So, yeah. Nice to know that our boy Joe is out here batting for the right side.
