The internet's favourite ship is coming home.
Bigger ships, high demand, and rougher seas are contributing to a spike in cargo being lost, polluting the ocean with plastics and other materials.
The luckless MS Ever Given, the internet’s favourite cargo ship, has been impounded by Egyptian authorities over a compensation claim worth almost $1 billion.
Disinformation made Marwa Elselehdar the villain of the internet’s favourite saga in the Suez. Then she took control of the narrative.
“Ever Given had never tried canal before.”
The last time ships got stuck in the Suez Canal, they were there for eight years and developed a separate society with its own Olympic Games.
If you had been following news of the Ever Given solely via Egyptian media, the first you would probably have heard of the ship was that it had been freed.
After drawing a dick on the ocean and blocking one of the world's busiest shipping lanes, the Ever Green has been dislodged.
The Ever Given cargo ship is blocking one of the world’s busiest trade routes, and conspiracy theorists have a lot of thoughts.
The Suez Canal Authority has made a bunch of dramatically-soundtracked videos showing the MS Ever Given not moving, as the ship holds up an estimated £7 billion worth of goods every day.
