Then Watlington tweeted screenshots of it.

O'Neal then discovered Watlington had tweeted the conversation, and she got pretty upset about him finding out.

Watlington said she didn't expect the tweet to blow up so quickly.

She said, "I didn't want him to be mad at me because I was expecting to get maybe one favorite, but then it blew up way too fast. I'm still upset about it because I didn't mean for it to get like that at all."

However, some people thought Watlington should have kept the conversation a secret.
