Body shaming is awful. It’s hard when we do it to ourselves, it’s hard when strangers do it, but what happens when the ones we love most body shame us? One woman shared her story on Twitter about her own boyfriend body shaming her. Thankfully, the internet was not having it.

Twitter user @babyyygucci, a woman named Shelby, sought advice from Twitter after a terrible conversation with her boyfriend about how her appearance made him feel.

The gross messages show that her boyfriend of only a few months was worried that her “gut might stick out more than [his]” and that she is “definitely getting a beer gut, babe.” Like the word ‘babe’ would make that sentence okay to say to someone.

The conversation screenshots have now gone viral and thousands of people have given her advice and shared their encouragment.

After reading all the comments Shelby realized that she needed to end things and that she was thankful for the support.

She updated her following with the news the next day and has since said that even though breakups are hard she knows she’s better off without him.

Moral of the story is: don’t settle for someone who treats you terrible, especially when the internet is there to support you.
