“I finally entered the Metaverse… My very own Ape! What should I name her? Thanks [Moonpay]. We all need protection from Evil Eye,” Madonna told her Instagram followers.

During the last two days, Madonna’s Bored Ape reveal on Instagram received around 86,668 likes. Furthermore, a number of fans gave Madonna advice on what to name the newly acquired BAYC.

“This is cute, I like it,” one individual wrote to Madonna. “Btw, isn’t Evil Eye just a superstition? Noone is evil by nature. I would name her Pinky,” the person added. Another individual on Instagram was a bit more sarcastic and said:

Name her: ‘Nobody Will Care About This In 10 years.’ A Cabbage Patch Beanie Baby FOMO for the 21st century. Destined for the digital trash heap.
