These Women Dancing To Toxic Voicemails From Their Exes On TikTok Are Empowering AF
Ever received a message from your ex so nasty you don't know whether to laugh or cry? Break up's can be tough, bitter and downright cruel.
But one group of women dealt with their painful texts in the *best* way, by playing their voicemails out loud and defiantly dancing to their toxic contents.
The craze started with 18-year-old Isabella, who posted an interpretive dance of herself on video sharing platform TikTok.
In the background, her ex could be heard saying: "I tried all day to talk to you about this but you're just blowing me off. I'm telling you the truth and I'm telling you this, and I don't know what to do. You still don't trust me".
Women worldwide then begun copying her idea, playing their own nasty voicemails and busting some moves over the top or even supportively dancing to the tune Tenley's exes sobbing.
Speaking to Rolling Stone, US teen Isabella gave some context to her voicemail, revealing she'd been in a toxic relationship for six months.
"I tried all day to talk to you about this but you're just blowing me off. I'm telling you the truth and I'm telling you this, and I don't know what to do. You still don't trust me," she said.
Isabella broke up with him after he admitted to have cheated on her, which led to the now viral voicemail message she shared with the world.
"It had really bothered me [to hear the message] at the time, but at this point it was just funny," she added.
Since she posted the video, it's received more than 388,000 likes, and she's bagged over 20,000 more followers.
And people quickly jumped on board. Virginia born Tenley Earles, 18, was another TikTok user to give her ex the dance treatment after finding Isabelle's response "really empowering".
As her ex angrily had a go at her for wearing leggings to school, yelling expletives at her down the phone, Tenley hilariously flailed her arms about without a care in the world.
"Whenever the f*** you want to wear it and act like that s***'s not disrespectful at all," he can be heard saying.
"I'm not dating someone who's got every f****** dude at the school looking at her. You wanna do that, don't f****** be with me".
We hate to break it to you hun, but it doesn't look like Tenley cares.
Speaking to Rolling Stone about what she described as "the worst and most manipulative relationship [she's] been in], Tenley said: "It was really hard listening to it the first few times, even now. [But this time] I was able to laugh at myself and at him."
The trend is now being widely praised online, too.
"Girls interpretive dancing to their sh*tty exes' voicemails on TikTok reminds me why women are truly, truly incredible. Unyielding forces of nature," one wrote.
While another agreed: "This is the best thing I've seen in a long time. I wish I would of saved some texts or voicemails so I could do this".
Film critic, K. Austin Collins, was a fan of the viral videos too, writing: "Your sons are truly out of their f**king minds, but your daughters are honestly funny as hell."
Women really are the best, aren't they? Not that we're bias...
