Sometimes you see a hashtag trending and you click on it without a care in the world… only to be emotionally destroyed.
#HurtBae, we’re referring to you.
It all started after The Scene shared a heartbreaking video showing a woman confronting her ex-boyfriend who cheated on her – and it has completely taken over Twitter.
He cheated on her. Now she wants to know why. pic.twitter.com/5hdlpKisjZ— The Scene (@SCENE) February 15, 2017
"why didn't u leave"February 16, 2017
The video shows the ex-couple discussing how their relationship ended and the guy – whose real name is reportedly Leonard – says he doesn’t even know how many times he cheated on the woman, who has since been identified as Kourtney Jorge.
And now we’re just mad.
#hurtbae : "How many girls you cheat on me with"February 16, 2017
"How many times did you cheat on me?"
Him: Idk I lost countFebruary 16, 2017
At one point Leonard asks Kourtney why she stayed with him and she says: “Because you were my best friend.”
Oh, #HurtBae. *cries dramatically*
Her: "I don't think you're a bad guy because you cheated, I forgave you."
Him: "Why?"February 16, 2017
"Because you were my best friend"#HurtBae

You know what, there are just too many emotional moments.
"I feel like you abandoned me"February 16, 2017
Yep, in case you haven’t realised yet, memes are the only way to get through this tragic situation.
Her: how many times did you cheat ?
Him: I, I, I, I, Idk
Her: If you had to say
Him: I wasn't countingFebruary 16, 2017
People on Twitter have got #HurtBae’s back, though – and seem to be feeling empowered while doing so.
We as women have to grow up. Just cause you love a man, does that mean he deserves you? It must be reciprocated or it means nothing #hurtbae— Miss Riss (@MissRissaB) February 16, 2017
I hope y'all girls in those toxic relationships leave today. You are young. You are beautiful. You are worthy❤️.DONT FORGET THAT! #hurtBae— Lillian (@shychuckles95) February 16, 2017
#hurtbae is a lesson.
If you are not serious don't get started. Don't awaken a woman's heart if you have no intentions to love her right.— Only Good Vibes (@Sweet_Cynsation) February 16, 2017
Leonard: "...and I get a chance to see you grow into the woman you're becoming."February 15, 2017
It’s not known why exactly the video was made, or indeed why the couple decided to share the story.
But, if it helps at all with your recovery from all the drama, Kourtney appears to have been found on Twitter – and has revealed she has since found love with a more deserving man.
Now excuse us while we try and pull ourselves together…
