A few days ago, @jaxwritessongs over on TikTok posted a video “adding sad violins to [her] ex’s apology text” in a collaboration with Lindsey Stirling, who played those aforementioned sad violins.
The TikTok video quickly went viral and now sits at nearly 600,000 likes and thousands of reshares on both the original platform and on Twitter.
And while I normally shy WAY away from public-shaming kinds of things, it sure does seem like this dude could use a healthy dose of reality being slammed into his face.
Jax starts by holding up the phone showing us the message from her ex. The caption reads, “Adding sad violins to my ex’s bullsh*t apology text.”
As Stirling plays soft, sad violin music, Jax reads the message.
“Hey. I know you’re probably never gonna forgive me for what happened but I wanted a chance to explain.”
Stirling plays on and Jax reveals the real reason for the apology:
The ex knew “it wasn’t right that I ‘technically’ hooked up with your roommate”. YIKES. Wait, it gets worse. He should be forgiven because… drumroll… he’s “going through a lot”.
You might be thinking: Kate, stop, this cannot get wors—
“I’ve been failing most of my classes and you KNOW I just got fired!”
Does he redeem himself at all? Hell no, dear reader, he does not. He begs Jax to show him sympathy and “stop making me feel like a villain” then starts to blame Jax because she was busy at work and he felt “really alone”.
