High schooler Gabi Dunn has always been a Ryan Reynolds fan, which is probably why she turned to him during hard times, too.
Using her Twitter account to post about the latest drama in her life, Dunn explained how her and her boyfriend at the time attended prom together – but unfortunately broke up a few days later.
Since she did not want to look back at that long awaited, eventful day and be constantly reminded of the heartache that was quick to follow, Dunn jokingly placed Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds’s cutout figure over her ex-boyfriend’s face.
Some may argue her Photoshop editing skills were not as spot on as one would hope, so they edited the photos for her as a response. However, the purpose of the post was to casually joke about the unfortunate breakup – not to fool social media users that Ryan Reynolds actually attended her prom.
What no one saw coming was an even greater response – Ryan Reynolds, who is known to be joker and one to appreciate a fair sense of humor, replied on Twitter saying “We should photoshop me over his yearbook picture next.”
Before Dunn could realize it, she stirred up an entire movement identified with the hashtag #Don’tMessWithGabi. Other teens from around the globe shared their stories and pictures as well, editing their prom pictures and mounting celebrity faces on top of their unworthy dates.
Some edits were more convincing than others, but the best contribution to the bad date debate was from a Twitter user who decided the edited photograph was not enough. Nudging Reynolds, she claimed an even better form of vendetta would be to take an actual picture with Dunn.
We are not holding our breath until that happens, but if any celeb were to put himself out there for a fellow fan and go that extra mile, we would expect Reynolds to trump that list.
