Texas high school student Marlen Williams created a basketball-themed sign to ask his friend to the prom. He presented it to her with a toy basketball, she read the sign and, apparently, she said yes.
Williams shared the beautiful moment on his Twitter account on Monday. Happily ever after, right?
Twitter, being the cruel and fickle place that it is, pounced on Williams sign, claiming it was confusing, incoherent and disobeyed the laws of grammar. Hundreds of people took it upon themselves to tell him so.
Its crazy how viral something can get thats unplanned, Williams told The Huffington Post. When I was making the poster, I never imagined all of this.
Despite all the digital commotion, Williamssign does have a coherent and witty message. The words were just awkwardly placed.
The sign reads:
Youll run the 1, Ill be 2. Id love to take a shot at prom with you. #12
If you still cant read it, helpful Twitter users photoshopped the sign so it would be easier to read.
Even though his sign was a tad bit jumbled, Williams can ignore all the internet trolls. After all, his date did say yes.
