It was just a normal day on Twitter and the above picture found its way amongst the millions of hashtags for comments and meme making. It was the month of April and someone tweeted:

The tweet was retweeted thousands of times as people nodded in agreement until finally, it caught the eyes of Lupita who notified Rihanna.
