People Can't Stop Talking About How This Girl Defended Her Girlfriend On Twitter

"Good thing she's my girl and not yours."

Back in April, Twitter user @MattyLohmann tweeted two photographs of the same young woman side by side with the caption "This is confusing."

The tweet caught a lot of people's attention, with some quickly jumping to defend the woman in the photograph. "Women wear makeup for themselves, not bc they feel the need to appeal to boys," someone tweeted in reply.

"I honestly did not think it was going to go viral," Dani told BuzzFeed News. She said she only responded because she thought the tweet using her girlfriend's image was disrespectful.

Israel told BuzzFeed News this was not the first time people on the internet had compared her appearance with and without makeup. "I wasn't fazed by it," she said.

"Hatred, immaturity, and jealousy are a few reasons why I think people bash others for wearing makeup," Israel added.

"'This is why people have trust issues' [and] 'This is why you take them swimming on the first date' are two well-known sayings people use to shame those who wear makeup."

"I love wearing makeup because in my eyes it's art," she told BuzzFeed News. "Yes, it boosts my confidence, yes, I feel more lively wearing it, but no, I don't rely on it or love myself any less without it."

Dani, who has been dating Israel for two months, hopes people who see the viral exchange will take something away from it. "No one should ridicule another person for how they look," she said.

Lohmann didn't respond to multiple requests for comment from BuzzFeed News.
