Calvin Harris Blocked Me On Twitter, So I'm The Real Victim Of His Breakup
The day Calvin Harris scorned me started off like any other day.
I came into work, caught a few Pokémon and wrote a couple of stories about celebrities being their celebrity selves.
Hoo, boy. This was going be better than a soap opera. We just knew it.
Eagerly, I went to Calvin's Twitter page so I could see what kind of drama he was dishing out to his ex-girlfriend.
But instead of the answers to all these pressing questions, I saw only this:
At first, I didn't understand. I thought to myself, "Maybe he regrets his tweets already? And instead of deleting them, he just shut down his Twitter?"
But as my co-workers excitedly read his tweets out loud to one another, the truth slowly sunk in: Calvin Harris had blocked me on Twitter.
My initial reaction was a mix of disbelief, amusement and pride.
I had no idea what I'd done to offend him. But honestly, I was thrilled he cared enough to block me.
I mean, Calvin Harris knows I exist! True: It seems like he kind of wishes that I didn't exist.
But still. He knows I do!
That feeling was quickly followed by extreme FOMO.
but also someone keep me updated on the meltdown i feel left out — Anna Menta (@annalikestweets) July 13, 2016
I was missing out on all the good stuff. I needed to know the drama.
And, by the way, I missed out on a LOT. Calvin straight-up called Tay out for making him look bad as a PR stunt. He even brought up Katy Perry.
It was fire. I definitely recommend a dramatic reenactment at your next party.
Next, I felt confusion.
@CalvinHarris IS THIS WHY CALVIN????? — Anna Menta (@annalikestweets) July 13, 2016
Seriously, what had I possibly done to him? Had I written a mean sentence about him in an article? Did that mean Calvin Harris reads my articles?
After a bit of research, my best guess about what got me blocked is this tweet. It's a joke I made back when we first got the Hiddleswift news:
As you can see, although I didn't tag him in the original tweet, I did in a reply.
It seems Calvin Harris isn't an "Avengers" fan.
Then, I felt indignant.
@CalvinHarris C'mon calvin u gotta admit this is kinda funny — Anna Menta (@annalikestweets) July 13, 2016
C'mon, Calvin! Cut me some slack.
I was just trying to get people to like me by commenting on the relevant news of the day with one of those memes the kids like so much!
Finally, I felt regret.
Honestly, I kind of like Calvin Harris, and even more so after this Twitter rant thing.
He's just a celebrity who got very publicly shit on by his ex, and so he blew off some steam on Twitter. I respect that. I don't want Calvin Harris to hate me.
Obviously, I can't apologize to him on Twitter. That ship has sailed. So I sent him an apology on Instagram, hoping he would see it.
And I suppose I might as well try once more.
So, Calvin, if you're reading this, I'm very sorry I rubbed salt in the wound of your horrible breakup. Please unblock me on Twitter.
PS: Apparently, I'm not the only person Calvin has done this to?
