On the heels of Valentine’s Day, a video about a woman confronting her ex-boyfriend about his infidelity has gone viral, sparking the #hurtbae trend on social media.
In the nearly 7-minute clip posted by The Scene, Kourtney, a Spelman grad, calmly meets face-to-face with her former beau to discuss how his multiple affairs resulted in their breakup.
While the couple started by smiling and reminiscing about how they met, Kourtney was soon crying.
"I would go through his phone, and I would see text messages or pictures of girls. Then, I would ask him about it, and sometimes you would lie,” she tearfully told him.
She even recalled a time she caught him in his room with another woman, and when he couldn’t answer her question about how many times he cheated, she left the room for a few moments weeping.
Since being posted on YouTube Feb. 15, the video has been viewed more than 45,000 times and Kourtney has been dubbed #hurtbae by tweeps who sympathize with her.
However, not everyone showed as much pity.
Despite the varying response, Kourtney has been shocked by the large outpour and took to Instagram to thank her followers for their support.
She and Leonard are still broken up and now live in different states, but they still talk regularly.
