    After replying to the guy's text, she tweeted her conversation and got thousands of shares from people super done with male entitlement.

    Rahman told BuzzFeed that she deleted the tweet after it blew up because her personal information was being shared without her consent. "I felt uncomfortable that random news outlets were writing about it using my pictures and mentioning what school I attend without my consent."
