Woman Gives Boyfriend A Shirt For His Birthday To Let Everyone Know He’s A Taken Man


There are certain things that are destined to go viral and this is one of them. It seems as if a woman gave her boyfriend a t-shirt with her picture on it to wear when he is out and she is not around. It reads: “If your [sic] reading this you’ve been looking at my man for too long.”

Karl Hennan was given the shirt by his girlfriend, Holly Cockerill before he went out with the boys to celebrate his birthday.

Along with the text, there was also a picture of Holly glaring over her shoulder. The rest of the shirt said: “This is how I’d be looking at you if I was here. HI I’m Holly, his GIRLFRIEND!”

After a photo of Karl wearing the shirt was posted to Twitter, it went viral. The picture shows Karl rolling his eyes while Holly is grinning at her creation. She captioned the viral photo: “Don’t think Karl likes his new top I got him for his birthday x wear it with pride hun x.”

The post was liked more than 12,000 times very quickly and retweeted almost 2,000 times. Holly even followed up the picture with a video. In the clip, she jokes with her boyfriend: “How dare he not wear it on the toilet!”

Karl posted another tweet, asking her: “Babe I really don’t wanna wear this stupid f***ing top tonight can I take the thing off?”

Holly jokingly replied: “No you best keep it on at all times, even around ya family you little b**ch.”

One commenter said they loved the idea: “Twitter is the best for giving us these ideas!”

Not everybody is a fan, however, such as some who are labeling Holly as being ‘insecure’. One person, who clearly wasn’t going along with her idea said: “How insecure… do you have to be.”

Another wrote: “And I thought I was insecure but DAMN you a whole nother level.”

There were also some grammar police out and one pointed out the typo on the shirt, saying: “If YOU’RE going to print something permanent, let’s say, like a t-shirt – and make it public, you’d better make sure you’ve got YOUR spelling correct.”

Holly has fired back at the haters, saying that the shirt was only a joke. She has been with Karl for seven years.

“I can’t cope with the responses to the top I got my bf,” she tweeted.

“It’s called a joke because me and my boyfriend actually like to have a laugh, it’ll be in the bin after knowing him.”

Hopefully, Karl will enjoy his night out with the boys, even if he doesn’t wear the shirt.
