20. The guy’s “I didn’t count” line was one of the most upsetting things about the video — at least to people on Twitter.

"How many times did you cheat?" "I wasn't counting."

23. The memes were inescapable.

Her: I forgave you [for all the horrible shit you did to me]. Him: ...why? Her: ...because you're my best friend.

24. But there were also deeper discussions about how men treat women.

I know we like to believe it, but a man that can hurt you like that is in no way, shape or form your friend let alone in love with you.

25. A lot of folks rallied around the idea of leaving someone alone if you have no intentions of doing right by them.

#hurtbae is a lesson. If you are not serious don't get started. Don't awaken a woman's heart if you have no intentions to love her right.

26. The chats about the subject carried on well into the evening.

It's really disturbing how men indiscriminately hurt women, feel zero remorse, and then blame women for their own a… https://t.co/BUFd9ivxSu

27. And it was exemplified in several posts within the tag.

28. Amid the chaos, an alleged fake Twitter account made in the name of the woman in the video emerged, and it said that she’d moved on and was in a happy relationship.

For all of those wondering, I am in a happy relationship with someone who treats me so very right 💕 Thanks so much… https://t.co/U5yDe7bqNQ

29. But another page, @RealCreoleKourt, says that the account is fake.

Sooo @creolekourt blocked me. Issa fake page. 😒

30. BuzzFeed News has reached out to verify if either Twitter account is real.
