No. 
The term “gypsy” is actually a non-preferred and derogatory term (slur) for Roma people. The slur assumes that the Romani came from Egypt, which is not true. For those of you who aren’t aware of anti-Roma bigotry, the Roma are an indigenous people whom originated in northern India 1,000 years ago who continue to be pushed from nation to nation and mistreated. They are frequently denied legal status and social services and often suffer from poorer health status than that of the general population and other marginalized groups within the UK and the US. Up to 220,000 - 500,000 Romani were slaughtered in the Holocaust, though a definite estimation can not be determined.
There are many stereotypes about the Roma, but the most predominant is that they are all gazing into a crystal ball, reading palms and tea leaves or divining the future with a deck of Tarot cards and that they’re all sociopathic drifters who steal children and anything else that isn’t tied down.
Please don’t continue to use this slur in ignorance.

Are you fucking kidding me? Like, no, Shakespeare wouldn’t tweet a sonnet cause 140 characters is a bit short for that. Wrong medium. But you know what he would have? A very active twitter FULL OF DICK PUNS AND YOUR MOM JOKES okay. (And probably also a blog for the sonnets and longer works, that cross-posts links to twitter anyway.)
Get out of here with that pretentious anti-technology bullshit.

He’d rock the fuck out of memes. Don’t deny it.

Exit, pursued by a doge. much run wow 

I don’t understand people who try to make Shakespeare into a pretentious thing cause he was basically an uneducated dick-joke making dude for the common masses. His historical plays are straight up fanfiction. There’s a scene in Macbeth where two guards are having a conversation as a dude pees on a wall. Get out of here with your Shakespeare snobbery.
