Feminist suspended from Twitter after referring to trans woman as ‘him’
Twitter Can't Get Over How This Woman's Boyfriend Called Out Her "Beer Gut"
Proving that some people are shallow, cruel, and generally awful, after three months of dating, the boyfriend of Shelby Johnson, 23, dumped her in a text message. The reason? Because "your gut might stick out more than mine, and that's just weird," he wrote, rationalizing this sentiment by noting that he'd previously told her to lose weight.
Deflated, Shelby — a student at Portland State University — took a screenshot of the exchange and a selfie of herself, then asked the Internet whether her response was warranted in a March 29th tweet that's since gone viral with 5,800 retweets, 6,000 comments, and 41,000 likes:
"You're definitely getting a beer gut babe," he concludes.
Shelby wasn't herefor the abuse— particularly since she had struggled to gain weight until she was 20. "I never felt happier and more healthy. I worked hard for this body," she tweeted.
In response to the fiasco, Twitter came to the rescue with relationship advice:
girl you are SOOO effing beautiful okay. im so happy you are planning on leaving him because you deserve someone who will love you at any weight and always make you feel beautiful and loved. youll find a guy like that i promise, just gotta get through assholes like him💛💛— hannah (@_hannahaleene) March 31, 2019
On March 31, with advice from her therapist, friends, and the Internet's support, according to a tweet, Shelby cut things off in person with her now-ex: "He felt like shit, especially after knowing my tweetwent viral. He has told me he'll use this as a learning experience to be a better person," she tweeted.
Although she didn't reveal her ex's name to protect his privacy, Shelby did post one of his last text messages: "The Internet helped me realize how bloated I was," he wrote.
