What the hell is wrong with you people? Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are divorcing and all Twitter can do is post Jennifer Aniston memes in response? Uh, you’re damn straight that’s all people can do. Because it’s about fucking time. As a longtime, devoted member of Team Jen, scrolling through GIFs of eternally perky Aniston reveling in their loss is something I don’t want to admit I love, but I Can’t. Stop. Gloating. It’s also totally dumb to suggest that a grown-ass woman would be reveling in her ex’s pain. But c’mon, this is what social media is made for.
I’m sorry, I know the breakup of Hollywood’s golden couple is hurting some people. Pitt and Jolie were two lovers who were totally OK with sneaking around, leaving Aniston to the tabloid wolves, and running off to build their family and do charity work (and brag about it at every chance). It’s sad this power couple has irreconcilable differences. Jolie’s attorney, Robert Offer, said in a statement, that the “decision was made for the health of the family.” So either Pitt has some crazy substance issues (since she’s asking for sole custody and no spousal support) or he’s banging a nanny.
It’s not nice to gawk, but I have to say — this has been a long time coming for Team Jen, and everyone is well within their right to simultaneously be a little vindicated and make fun of Rachel Green all at the same time. This is what Tuesdays are made for.
Breaking the news
Nothing lasts forever, bitches
Try to contain yourself
People are just mean AF
It’s about time, really
Sorry, not sorry
But it has to feel a little good
It’s really not about her
I mean, she put up with a lot way back when
She can’t be that petty
She definitely deserves a few texts to friends
It’s refreshing, too
To everyone who said one love was better than another
Really, though — Hollywood couples are all just BS
It’s a little dumb to paint Aniston as a catty, bitter woman just loving all of this. But fans and the tabloid media have long been beating Jen up since her split from Pitt. It’s worth acknowledging that it has to feel at least a little something. She’s only human after all.
