Posted on

Cordell Shepperd and his 19-year-old girlfriend Diana Alfaro have been dating for a few months. Shepperd loves and appreciates Alfaro a lot.

"My favorite thing about her has to be just how pure she is and how loving she can be — even in a bad mood," Shepperd, 17, told BuzzFeed News.

So last week, he tweeted this casual selfie of him and Alfaro and wrote "My girl finer than yours." This is a fairly "regular tweet" for him, so he was surprised to see how viral it became, he said.

My girl finer than yours 🤷🏾‍♂️

It first gained attention because his friend Erik Hernandez, 18, saw the tweet and wanted to mess with him a bit. Hernandez responded to Shepperd's tweet with a photo of his girlfriend, Alina Campos, and said, "I beg to differ."


Shepperd then responded back with another photo of Alfaro and said, "You sure?"

"positive" —Hernandez

"I disagree" —Shepperd

This went on for a while publicly. Hernandez was just having a running joke with his friend, but he was very sincere about hyping up his girlfriend of nine months. "She's such an amazing person," he told BuzzFeed News.

The banter had everyone laughing, and soon other guys were sharing pics of their relationships and significant others.

@dellhoops Thats it, I win. yall can stop now💁🏽‍♂️


"I really like y'all confidence in [sic] all... but my baby holds the crown," one partner wrote.

@dellhoops i really like y'all confidence in all... but my baby holds the crown 🤷🏾‍♂️

And it wasn't only guys. "You gotta appreciate this beauty. I'm pretty lucky," this person chimed in about her girlfriend.

@cwooddall @elchino_59 @euroasian05 @cornisnasty @jhiiid @iamtjp11 @dellhoops You gotta appreciate this beauty 😍🤤 I…

Noah Frasier, 19, told BuzzFeed News he decided to drop in a pic of his boyfriend, 17-year-old Jordan, "because I felt that Jordan's appearance matched his soul and that everyone should see that."

@dellhoops I'm sorry but my boyfriends finer than all of y'all girlfriends💙

"He is the most beautiful, talented, and amazing person I know," Frasier added.

In the replies to Shepperd's tweet, everyone else was trying to challenge him by playing PR for their partners.
